I went to Nairobi for the first time back in 2006. It was my first stop before heading to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for my 28th birthday. To get to Nairobi from New York, I first had to fly to London where I had a long layover in Heathrow Airport. Then it was another long flight […]

Why Airline Elite Status is Less Valuable Now Than Ever Before

Airlines, points, miles, status, silver, gold, platinum, elite; whatever! These are the buzzwords that have long defined airline elite status.

Money Saving Air Travel Tips

I am back in the States now after a long and successful trip around the world. There were some 30ish flight segments and a lot of tired eyes. However, the cost of a trip like this was not that bad, even with all of the flying. I was just sitting here thinking about how cheap […]
