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?
