Keep Your Travel Goal in Mind When Accruing Credit Card Points!

All 3 of us at this blog have a daytime job IRL. We make enough to make a living... but we do not make enough to fly in premium cabins all over the world all the time. Which is why we use airline miles to book our flights in business class and first class. Recently…

Portrait Roma Hotel: Chic. Gorgeous. Perfect.

Fact. This hotel is literally one of my favorite hotels in the world.  I love it so much and so does everyone else who has had the privilege to stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. There is a reason why TripAdvisor reviews rave about it. Out of 476 reviews, 452 people gave it 5 stars.…

Shangri-La Vancouver: 5 Star Hotel @ $120 A Night!!!!!
