If you've had your morning cup of coffee before visiting Traveling For Miles this morning you may have noticed a small new floating link on the bottom right of every page. It's a link with a logo that I'm very proud to have on the site because it shows that Traveling For Miles is now part of the BoardingArea family of blogs.
Over the past few weeks I've been in the blissful position of having little to no internet access whatsoever which is why there have been comparatively few posts appearing on Traveling For Miles (and no posts since August 9th).
Regular readers may remember that I occasionally fly out to the Mediterranean to help out a friend who’s in the middle of a long rebuilding project and, as it happens, that’s where I am right now.
I've been meaning to give Traveling For Miles a new look for some time but I've never really had the time to keep the site running and do the wholesale changes TFM actually needed. Recently it became obvious that I would never have enough time to do both so I decided to put TFM on a temporary hiatus and get down to changing a lot of things I wanted to change.
Earlier today a number of our subscribers will have received a Traveling For Miles email which contained links to posts that were nothing short...
For most of this week I'm going to be away from home and without regular access to the internet. I may be able to get the occasional email when I find cell phone service but internet access is going to be almost non existent and, even if I do find a connection, it will almost certainly only offer speeds last seen in the 1990's. I can't wait!
I have a really good time flying to all the various places I get to visit and I love exploring new cities and cities I can't resist revisiting but, when it comes right down to it, I'm almost always working. I don't get on an aircraft without taking at least a hundred pictures and I can't walk into a hotel room without taking at least a hundred more. When I'm in airport lounges I'm almost always writing (and taking yet more pictures) and, even when I'm a few thousand miles away from home and visiting a fantastic new city, I'm usually doing something blog-related before I allow myself to go out and explore.
I'm taking a break from posting today and you'll probably notice a few less posts going out over the holidays as I enjoy some...
Some of you may have noticed that, for the past week-or-so, Traveling For Miles has been posting 2 blogs a day rather than the more usual three…and there’s a very good reason for that. I’m not at home and I’m not even traveling. Right now I’m on a Mediterranean island helping a friend renovate his house. The weather is fantastic, the food is great, the beer is cheap and life is good...but that’s not the best bit.
One of the major benefits of traveling as much as I do it that I rack up quite a few miles and points in various loyalty systems as well as various perks that make travel a lot more comfortable than it would otherwise be. Unfortunately not all of those points and perks last for ever and I find myself in a position where I have an American Airlines Business Extra upgrade certificate that I'm not going to be able to use before it expired at the end of the year. So, rather than letting it go to waste, I thought I'd give it away to a Traveling For Miles reader.
