When I last wrote Trip Planning: Hawaii March 2017, about our upcoming Hawaii trip, I had a lot of ideas on what I wanted to do in terms of lodging but was not at a point where I could nail anything down. This was partially because I was still working on building up our points stash, but also I was trying to figure out if obtaining hotel status’ was possible. I’m happy to say that we’ve finally firmed up all our plans except for a few minor things here and there! The countdown has begun… t-minus 20 days!
If you've been following along in my blog posts, you know that we already have some 2016 travel plans in place, with perhaps some more on the horizon. We had initially wanted to plan for a Spring Hong Kong 2017 trip, but finally made the decision that it wasn't a good choice to go simply to take advantage of lower award prices pre-award chart devaluation.
Being the travel and flying aficionado that I am, I follow most of the major US domestic airlines on Facebook and Twitter. Alaska Airlines is one of them! Recently, they posted from their Facebook account a contest pertaining to the most recent Bachelor (honestly, I didn't watch this season, but I'm not ashamed to say that I have in the past!). I guess Lauren, the woman that was chosen by the Bachelor, Ben, is an Alaska Airlines employee, so the contest was based on that premise.
