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.

Quick Review of Italy and Spain

Hello everyone! Today I would like to post a quick trip review of my most recent adventure: Italy & Spain. This trip was really as a graduation gift for my sister and also an anniversary present for my parents. I was able to accomplish it entirely through points and miles. Thanks to the United Airlines credit card (Chase Bank), we were able to redeem the round-trip flight tickets for free with one of their partner airlines: Lufthansa. Also, thanks to the SPG credit card (American Express) and  Marriott credit card (Chase Bank), we were able to redeem free nights in the hotels we stayed in.

I hope you guys enjoy the few pics I posted on this trip and if any of you have questions on how I did this, please feel free to comment below and I will respond soon after. Thank you!!!
