Back in September of last year, I booked an amazing deal (thanks to TheFlightDeal) to a relatively unknown destination in South America which is Asuncion in Paraguay. The all in cost was $512.90 on American Airlines and my routing was LAX-MIA-ASU-MIA-LAX.

On this route, I will be earning 12,333 miles @ 4.1cpm (cents per mile).
I called up the American Airlines Executive Platinum line right away to apply two SWU’s (Systemwide Upgrades) and it cleared immediately. I had to obtain a multiple entry Paraguayan Visa for $160 USD from the consulate in Los Angeles. I’m excited to go to Paraguay and explore parts of the unknown and I’m not sure what to expect. I’m spending two nights and three days in Asuncion and can’t wait to share my experiences with you.
