25% Fewer Miles to Europe From 6 US Cities

Do you live near Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, New York (JFK), or Washington, DC?  The new Flying Blue Promo Awards could be a good deal for a discounted trip on KLM or Air France to Europe!

And even if you’ve never flown on KLM or Air France, you might have points that transfer to the program.  Because you can transfer Chase Ultimate RewardsAMEX Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou points, and Starwood points to Flying Blue, at a 1:1 ratio!

Plus, when you use Flying Blue Promo Awards, you’ll typically pay fewer miles or points for a round-trip flight to Europe than you would with airlines like Delta or United Airlines.

Visiting My Mom & Sister in NYC: Part 1 – Airbnb & Rockefeller Center

My mom and sister wanted to visit me for my birthday.  My mom was flying from India and my sister was visiting from Australia, so what better place to meet (for them!) than in NYC!

I always enjoy visiting New York City, and had a few work meetings, so I was thrilled that I could combine work and family time.  I was able to take in a Broadway show, try new foods, and see historic landmarks, like the Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller Center.

It Was Fun to Visit Famous Areas of New York City, Like the Prometheus Statue in Front of the Comcast Building!

Some travelers prefer to stay away from touristy destinations like Manhattan, but I had a blast.  Perhaps because it was my first time being a tourist in NYC!  New York City is filled with an energy unique to anywhere else I’ve been.
