How to do Barcelona in 4 days.

20151127_053234

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.

This is a review of our 2 short but awesome and active days in Hong Kong.       Our day started early in the morning. The plane arrived to Hong Kong at 6:00am and it was too early to check into our hotel (JW Marriott Hong Kong), so we decided to leave our luggage in the hotel and started touring and walking around the city. We didn’t want to waste any time because our stay in Hong Kong was going to be very short, just 2 days and there’s just so much to see and do in Hong Kong.

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!  Read the rest of this entry

Earlier this year we started using the Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard. We applied for this card a couple months ago when I was looking for a new travel rewards card that would earn me lots of points to redeem for free trips. This credit card has been great for my wife and I to accumulate lots of points for free flights and hotel nights. This is an awesome travel credit card that I recommend anyone interested in traveling for very cheap to have because you can redeem the points for free flights and hotels! This card is offering a huge welcome bonus of 40,000 points for first time customers which equals to $440 of free money to spend in hotels or flights. This is an offer that we should all take advantage of because its basically a gift of $440 dollars to redeem for travel.
