Barcelona is such a great city. With the perfect amount of beach and city, I can most definitely live here. Starting with the food. It’s surprisingly cheap to eat. And aside from the food being affordable, the entertainment is intriguing. Like the traditional flamenco show. You’ve seen nothing in Barcelona if you don’t attend a flamenco show.
See animals in a zoo is great if you live in an area where there isn’t much wildlife but coming to Africa is a completely different experience. Seeing these big animals roaming the plains of the Maasai Mara was amazing.
The entrance of our wonderful hotel the Fairmont Mara Safari Club.
The Fairmont Mara Safari Club is a top notch hotel in the Mara North Conservancy in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This hotel has become very dear to us for it’s amazing location, beauty and especially, their great staff and exceptional customer service. In our previous blog, we mentioned our safari tour-guide driver, Henry. Henry was absolutely wonderful. Starting with his over 10 years experience in game drives in the area, his personality makes you want to stay forever. He has definitely won a place in our hearts for as long as we live. Anne, at the reception, was also astounding in helping us with whatever we needed. What made our experience in Kenya that much better was the fact that everyone was friendly and eager to help at all times. No matter if it was first thing in the morning or the middle of the night. So today, I will be writing a review on our experience staying in this hotel.

Lions, elephants, hyenas, leopards, monkeys, gazelle and antelopes galore, crocodiles, wildebeest, zebras… The list goes on and on of animals you see on a daily basis when on safari. It is truly amazing to witness how they act in the wild and how close the drivers take you into the action. Most of them know a lot about the animals and their behaviors. Take our guide Henry from the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. He is outstanding! Really knows his stuff and makes everyone feel comfortable with his extraordinary personality. Two thumbs up for this great tour guide. Hopefully, if you decide to visit Kenya and stay in the Fairmont Mara Safari Club, you are privileged with Henry as your driver and tour guide.
Just a couple months ago we spend a full week in Bora Bora and I can’t say enough good things about this magical place. Bora Bora is amazingly beautiful and the closest thing to paradise we have ever seen. Unfortunately this place is not very cheap in fact is one of the most expensive travel destinations in the world. After we went to Bora Bora we have many friends and family asking us how they can also get there but without breaking the bank.
We would like to apologize to everyone because we haven’t updated our blog in the last 15 months. As some of you may know we breed and train Doberman dogs. Between our breeding and training, regular full-time jobs and other things we haven’t been able to stay active with our blog but we are planning to change this and start working on our blog once again.
I definitely like taking advantage of the off-peak deals that some Airlines offer because it means more free flights for less required miles.. US Airways has some very nice deals with its award chart if you happen to be traveling during the right period. If you still haven’t planned your winter trips, you may want to consider a getaway to Europe or South America. Either of these will cost only 35,000 miles round-trip in coach. With the The US Airways Premier World MasterCard we can earn this miles after just the first purchase with the card. You could be flying for Free very fast with this card, which is why I highly recommend it! Continue reading →
My Name is Guillermo Rodriguez and my wife is Samantha. We have earned and redeemed millions of airline miles and hotel points since we got married in 2008 – Almost all of them were earned without having to fly in airplanes or staying in hotels. They were earned by applying for travel credit cards with big reward programs.
