We knew it would be a long and exhausting day before ending in stunning Palau, but we had no idea how long it would become.

A few weeks ago I asked for your tips and got lots of them, so first of all thanks for your help! I incorporated many suggestions from there and the Argentina Master Thread on DDF for trip planning. -My wife and I and our 10 month old son have just arrived home on Wednesday afternoon from a week-long trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina. A city with lots to see, incredible Ice Cream and Dulce de Leche baked goods, and home to one of the best kosher restaurants I’ve ever been to. Here are some of my trip notes:Flight: -I used 125,000 AA miles for my wife’s First Class ticket from Cleveland to Buenos Aires. -For myself I used 4,500 BA miles to go from Cleveland to New York in coach, 75,000 BA miles for JFK to Buenos Aires in first, 75,000 BA miles for Buenos Aires to Miami in first, and 7,500 BA miles for Miami to Cleveland in coach, all on the same flights as my wife. -To book Rafi as a lap child when using AA miles would mean having to pay 10% of the regular $10,000 … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Read my trip notes from Tokyo and the way home in ANA First Class after the jump: We landed in Guam on Friday morning and went to the United Club to daven. It’s a good thing that United clubs don’t have day rooms with beds like some first class lounges have or else I’m pretty sure we couldn’t have possibly been woken up to take our flight to Tokyo. We weren’t supposed to be flying … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 4: Tokyo, Japan And Back Home In ANA First Class

Here are some more trip notes from the round-the-world trip my wife and I took for a month between December 2010 and January 2011. Australia had long been on my bucket list, so it was really exciting to finally make it down under! I hope these notes will prove useful for somebody. You can read more of my trip reports by clicking on the trip notes tab. This trip was made possible by AA’s unique OneWorld award chart where we flew around the world in first class for the cost of opening up a few credit cards. With myriad of rules it’s not designed for beginners though. I helped prepare for the trip down under with info from the Australia Master thread on the DansDeals Forums,-Fodor’s Australia-Lonely Planet Australia-Lonely Planet Discover Australia (More of a “cliffs notes” guide than a comprehensive guide, but has … [Read more...] about Round-The-World Trip Notes, Part 3: Melbourne, Australia.

My carefully crafted Dubai itinerary would have to be reworked. Upon landing I put on my Indians cap. Immigration and customs didn’t ask us a single question. They couldn’t care less about the Israeli immigration sticker on my passport either. I will admit that walking through baggage claim and seeing where other flights were coming from is a bit of a surreal experience: But the Dubai airport itself is truly stunning. It’s a shame that most US airports make such a poor first impression on visitors: Most of the advice on the … [Read more...] about Maldives Trip Notes Part 2: Dubai and Abu Dhabi

In 2012 when Singapore started allowing people to redeem miles for the A380 couple’s suite I booked us tickets to Paris just 2 days before departure. It was our 2nd visit to the city of lights, but we enjoyed it so much the first time that we had to go back again. We spent 2 nights at the Park Hyatt there and enjoyed the city in the quieter winter season. In 2013 when BA had a glitch that allowed us to fly to Buenos Aires in first class for 0 miles we dropped Rafi off at my parents and were on a plane within just 2 hours of booking tickets! We only spent a single night in Buenos Aires, much to the shock of the … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Rome: Veni, Vidi, Vici In 48 Hours; United Polaris First Class And Polaris Lounge Review
