Guest Post: Halachic Zmanim In Polar Regions On The Kosher Antarctica Cruise Several readers have asked if I can share my packing list, so let’s start with that.

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

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.

He’s added some annotations in the red italics. Ever since I read about the Continental Island Hopper some 10 years ago I’ve wanted to experience it. It flies on a “milk run.” In a bygone era a plane would fly from say LA to NYC with several stops before getting to the destination: Continental Micronesia launched the island hopper nearly 50 years ago, and aside from some changes in the … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 1: Honolulu
Looking for beauty on a budget? If you're looking to save money and still look flawless, it doesn't really get better than Morphe. You probably know the brand from their makeup brush sets or the now-famous Jaclyn Hill palette – and there's a reason so many makeup artists and beauty bloggers are talking about them. Morphe makes some of the most affordable makeup around, and their products are absolutely stunning. While Morphe doesn't really publicize whether they test on animals, Cruelty-Free Kitty reports they are in fact a cruelty-free brand – which is just another reason to love them.

Unless you wanted to take a trip south of the border, their makeup brushes and eyeshadow palettes were almost impossible to find – until now, that is.
