Visiting family and friends is my favorite way to use miles and points!
Family visits may not have the same lucrative redemption rates as a trip in First Class, or foreign 5-star hotels. But the memories I make are priceless!
I recently spent some much-needed time with my mom in the beautiful state of Oregon! I spent a few days in Portland with my friend Kristen before my mom arrived.
The highlight of my travel was road-tripping with my mom to my cousin Rachel’s wedding. The wedding was a long overdue family reunion. I hadn’t seen some of my cousins for years!
Visiting Multnomah Falls Was Like Stepping Into a Fairy Tale!
The drive along the Oregon coast was gorgeous. It’s now one of my favorite places in the US!
