Now Boarding: Grant Thomas, Travel With Grant

Recently I caught up with Grant Thomas on the NowBoarding Podcast.  Each week, the NowBoarding Podcast sits down with a Boarding Area blogger for 30 minutes to dig deeper into their world.  We talk about their travel preferences, favorite (and sometimes least favorite) travel companies and mix in a bit of humor about the crazy world of miles and points that we call home. Grant is the founder of Travel With Grant. In Episode number 23 we find out about Grant’s road trips as a kid and how that has morphed into […]
