Reminder: Only 3 Days Left to Book Club Carlson Free Night Award Stays!

This weekend is your last chance to book Club Carlson award stays and get the last night free if you have the US Bank Club Carlson Premier Rewards card.

That’s because the changes to Club Carlson’s award program take effect Monday, June 1, 2015.  Even if you don’t have the card, it’s worth looking into award stays now, because on the same date, some Club Carlson hotel award nights will cost more points.


Club Carlson Cardholders Should Book Award Stays by Sunday to Save Points!

Even if you’re not sure of your travel plans, you should still book now.  As long as you meet the hotel’s cancellation policy, you can get your points back if your plans change.

A Stopover in Vibrant Hong Kong: Part 3 – Our Room at the InterContinental Hong Kong

Daraius and I took my parents on an around-the-world trip to the MaldivesIndia, and Hong Kong.  My step-dad, Mark, had never been outside the US, and my mom had only been to India.

We had a free stopover in Hong Kong with our Cathay Pacific flight back to the US.

Daraius and I thought it would be a great experience for them to see Hong Kong because it’s such a dynamic city!  It’s also very different from both India and the Maldives.
