wanderlust.


Gabe and I are entirely terrible at staying in one place. I always thought this was due to our situation: he works overseas, and during his three weeks of leave we travel to see family and friends.

But, no. It appears we simply lack the ability to be in one place for more than one week without feeding off each other's intense wanderlust. We spent last week drooling over the Jetsetter app, and yelling things like, "Oh my lord, babe. BALI. Look at this...Bali."

And yesterday we showed our true travel-addict colors. Suddenly we remembered our travel rewards--we might be able to go somewhere without spending much. We sat at the computer, pooling together every last airline mile or redeemable hotel point within our grasp. It totaled up to two round-trip flights anywhere in the US and free lodging. Brand loyalty pays off, I guess!

We chose Boston. Gabe lived there for a bit, and we met in Boston quickly the day before we flew to Ireland...Gabe was a true gentleman who didn't want me to fly internationally by myself. But, we are both charmed by the city...and have been hoping to get back. Yesterday brought some promising news on the job front (every. finger. crossed.), so we're holding off booking until later in the week.

But I'm pulling out my suitcase and planning my outfits. Too bad my fave clothing shops don't offer redeemable loyalty points. Cause I'd love a new outfit...for freesies. ;)

If you could go anywhere right now, and your flight + lodging was free, where would you go?

  1. Umm, I fully expect a personal email to hit my inbox after you book asking when we can meet up. That's all. Oh, wait. YAY! Fingers crossed for Gabe.....

  2. I'm off to Tucson in two weeks with a flight, hotel and rental care paid for by miles. I love those days when I suddenly remember I have miles and can use them.

  6. flights and lodging for free??? you lucky ducks. i hope you enjoy the hell outta Boston.

    if we could go for freesies, i may go back to the south of France for a week. I lived there last summer while my man was deployed to Kyrgyzstan and all i wanted was to share the sunshine and gelato and the sea with him. i think that's where i'd pick :)

  9. I'm such a fan of your blog! I feel like our lives are weirdly similar haha. I lived overseas in Qatar for 13 years growing up, I go to university in Boston, and right now I'm studying abroad in Ireland. Weird, right? Anyways, I would go to Greece in a heartbeat!!

    As for me, I'm going to Ireland this summer, and that's where I've ALWAYS wanted to travel! But I'd take the free airfare on that!

    Responding to where I would travel...I actually just took my dream trip to France with my hubby last week! I'm in the process of a bunch of posts on it right now :) Nothing like pouring over all the photos afterwards!

  16. travel rewards/comps/points, are awesome possum! when we were in vegas our hotels were all comped!! :) being that we just came back from a trip, I think if I could go anywhere right now for free it would be to spend more time with my bf's family in Manila and my family & friends in Hawai'i :)
