Last weekend I presented a couple of sessions at the USA Today Frequent Traveler University in Washington DC. These events are always so much fun as it is pretty exhilarating to be around others who are as excited about miles, points, and travel as I am! I am always so grateful to have stumbled into such as an amazing hobby after being around a couple hundred other like-minded people at one of these events.
At this particular event I presented two sessions with my friend, and fellow family traveler, Ed from Pizza in Motion. In both of those sessions I promised to share the slides from our presentations so that people didn’t feel the need to take photos of particular slides or jot down extra notes. If you weren’t in the sessions, I’m not sure that the slides are particularly helpful as a stand-alone item, though of course anyone is welcome to look at them.
The first presentation is a very introductory session with tips on getting started with miles and points, including things you really need to think about before diving in head-first.
The second session we presented was geared toward families and includes ten tips to make family travel cheaper and easier.
Many thanks to everyone who came out to the sessions and FTU DC. It truly was so much fun to connect face to face and I’m already looking forward to an upcoming Frequent Traveler University in my own home state of Texas in April!
