Good afternoon from sunny Tampa!
After a quick trip to Frankfurt I am visiting my parents in Florida, where the weather is significantly better. 😉
Next week I leave on my dad’s big birthday trip, so there will be lots of fun updates from the road.
I apologize for the lack of trip report updates this week, as it has been an absolutely crazy week. Sub-48 hour trips to Germany generally don’t help in the “gotta catch up on writing” department.
That being said, I promise to get the “A380 Addiction” trip report done before I embark on the big trip!

If you travel within North America, and have a consistent traveling companion, you should really be considering the Southwest Companion Pass.
To accrue the Companion Pass you need to earn 110,000 points in a year, and a few tricks will get you there in no time.
Hyatt is offering a discount on gift cards, and by stacking with some other offers you can save more than 10% on Hyatt stays in the US, Canada and Caribbean.
If you routinely stay at Hyatt properties, this is pretty much a no-brainer!
