While at the Frequent Traveler University a couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hanging out with David Code from the Huffington Post. You could say that I was interviewed by him, but it really is more accurate to say that we hung out off and on throughout the weekend. While he was interviewing various bloggers there for an article he was working on (no, he was not exposing deep dark secrets of miles and points), he is also a big miles and points enthusiast himself and really enjoyed talking and learning about all things frequent flyer related. His family has really benefited from award travel and he wanted to learn more and share tips with other families. Of course, everyone in the miles and points community gets a bit concerned when the media gets interested in our “hobby”, but I personally think that the article does a good job of giving some good tips and pointers for families on how to get started in this world of reward travel without exposing any real loopholes or tricks that might implode if exploited by the masses.
The family slant on the article is right up my ally, so I am more than happy to share the link to the Huffington Post article entitled “How Your Family Can Fly Around the World (almost) For Free“. Which, coincidentally, is just about the same name of the presentation I did yesterday at the Retired Austin Travelers meeting. So, great title, David!
I started this blog to help other families (or even non-families) travel more, travel further, and travel better than they could without miles and points, and I’m happy to see an article published with the same goal. If you get a minute, check it out!
