Where Miles and Points Took Me in 2013

This past year was by far the most travel I have done and I can’t wait to travel more internationally. That is my New Years Resolution! Here is a recap of where miles and points took me this year…

Cancun, Mexico

Stayed at the JW Marriott and loved the pool there! Also stayed at the Hyatt Regency and enjoyed their lounge with free drinks! The beaches there are awesome and looking forward to going back next year!

Stayed at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk and went to my first Comicon!

Vegas & Mt. Zion

Had a fun girls vacation during 4th of July weekend. Stayed at the Flamigo in Las Vegas and had a chance to do some hiking at Mt. Zion in Utah.

Orlando, FL

Went to Orlando to relive my childhood and got to play at Universal Studios and Disney World! You are never to old to go ­čÖé

Miami, FL

I stayed at the Hilton Bentley and got to soak up plenty of sun!  Also did a snorkel boat tour which I enjoyed.

I joined First2Board this year and it has been a great experience thus far! We had our first #F2B session in Charleston and will be having another one in Seattle next year which I’m really looking forward too!

Munich, Germany

Finally got to go to my first Oktoberfest and it was such a blast! I got to wear a dirndle, eat delicious sausage and pretzels, and got to take a tour of the BMW museum. I will be going again this year…might even be an annual tradition!



Went to my first Chicago Seminars this year and I enjoyed meeting all the different people that I regularly interact with through the blogs and twitter. Its all about the networking and of course having fun too!

Probably my favorite pic of the year!

I had a chance to go to the annual Chocolate Festival at Navy Pier and stayed at the Radisson Blu!

mmmm chocolate everything!

StarMegaDo 5

I had a chance to experience my first StarMegaDo where you get to ride in a chartered flight with other frequent fliers and points and miles “enthusiasts.” I can definitely say that I’ve met new lifelong friends here.

Having fun!

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

I experienced this fun festival where hundreds come from all over to watch the skies filled with hot air balloons.

We have lift off!

Just recently I got to go to Vegas to do a timeshare presentation with Hilton Grand Vacations and got to stay in the Trump hotel. I was also able to see some shows while there!

Plans for 2014

After putting together my travels for the past year, I’ve realized that I didn’t do posts for all of them which I will work on for next year.

Some of my travel plans for the upcoming year include Austin Do, FTU in Seatle, Seattle Sessions with F2B, Italy, Florida, and whatever else might come my way.

Happy New Years! Thank you for all my past and current readers and hope to inspire, educate, and be merry in the new year!
