Is Flying First Class all it’s Cracked Up To Be?

We get a lot of sideways looks in our daily lives when we tell people that we only travel in first class. People like to assume that it is because we’re made of money or the blog gives us tens of thousands of dollars a month in income (hint, it doesn’t). Ben and I made a pact back in 2013 that we would do everything possible to fly in first or business class on every single flight that we take, and at the MINIMUM fly in...

Hyatt Herald Square NYC Hotel, a Hotel Review

Hyatt offers a wide range of options for hotels in the NYC area, with options ranging from the over the top Park Hyatt to the family friendly Hyatt House with full kitchens.

Fitness Model Kicked out of Qantas Lounge, Claims Gender Discrimination

Fitness model and former WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie has accused Qantas of gender discrimination after she was kicked out of a Qantas lounge for allegedly violating their dress code. In a society where people will jump to social media to levy accusations at corporations for the smallest of slights, I’m siding with Qantas on this one, and I’m calling foul at her claim that the airline is doing anything unsightly.

Radisson Red Hotel Downtown Portland, Review

Portland is a hip town with a great vibe. It’s full of great restaurants, music, nightlife, and just as strong a coffee culture as it’s cousin, Seattle. One of the newer hotels on the block that doesn’t get much attention is the Radisson Red. There are plenty of Hyatt, Marriott, and Hilton properties in downtown, and Radisson usually doesn’t draw a lot of loyalty in the USA. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the main downtown sights so...

How to Park in the UK – the JustPark App

Whenever we travel, we almost always rent a car. It is typically marginally more expensive or sometimes less expensive than round trip public transit and allows us the flexibility to take a bunch of side trips that public transit doesn’t allow. The problem that we run into for London is the cost to park at many hotels in the city. Luckily, I came across an app that has saved me hundreds of pounds when we visit. It’s called...

Austin American Airlines Admiral’s Club, Review

One of the great perks of the Citi AAdvantage Executive credit card is the lounge access that it provides to American Airlines Admiral’s Clubs. Without it, there are plenty of airports where we’d be without a lounge. The Austin Admiral’s Club offers a surprisingly large space to relax and recharge before your flights. Location The elevator to the Admiral’s Club is located right next to gate 22. The same elevator will take you to both...
