The snow decided it needed to visit one more time, dropping a couple of inches on the ground outside. Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:
Cheap Flight of the Day: Cheap flight to Southern California from NYC, $229. And, if you’re in the mood for Costa Rica, those flights can be found for $250.
In Case You Missed It: I’m giving away a free weekend at a great hotel! And, another good reason why it’s good to keep a stash of miles.
Is Bogota Safe? This is a great piece from the perspective on an experienced, single female traveler. I haven’t been to Colombia but have considered taking advantage of cheap fares I see pop up. This covers a number of different aspects about solo travel and Colombia specifically. As a native NYer, I feel pretty comfortable in most urban settings. That’s both good and bad. It’s good to have confidence but I’d hate to think I’m over-confident and put myself in unsafe situations. This piece is a good reminder to be careful.
San Jose is starting to become quite the international destination, now with the addition of a flight to Shanghai. This comes on the heels of announcements for service to London and Frankfurt to go with service to Tokyo on a 787. A good alternative for folks in the Bay area, though there aren’t a ton of nonstop options from San Jose to points East.
Disney is ordering 2 new cruise ships, both slightly larger than their most recent additions. They’re still on the small side with a total of 6 ships. But, by 2021 they’ll be able to cover a host of destinations with repeated cruises.
