Sheraton Kauai with the SPG Amex Card

Unless you’re new to reading this blog, you know I have had a relationship with SPG in the past, and this post about Kauai is part of an on-going project to promote The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.

Danté and I were recently challenged to book a trip with 70K Starpoints somewhere in the USA, during the peak holiday travel season, either around Thanksgiving or Christmas. And we immediately both wanted to visit Hawaii, just before Thanksgiving. I had been before but only to the Big Island, so when we started to think about which island to visit, we chose Kauai as an island that would be new to both of us. From the photos online only, we thought the Sheraton Kauai was our best bet for a great beach, good food and the kind of service you can expect being a loyal Starwood Member…

Cruising the Nile with Abercrombie & Kent

By far one of the most wonderful parts of this journey through Egypt that I’ve been on with Abercrombie & Kent has been the actual cruise on the Nile River. It’s allowed us to take in a large portion of the country during the day while traveling between places at night (well, sleeping as the Captain steers our boat to the next destination)!

First Thoughts on Egypt

I am currently traveling through Egypt on a 10 day tour with Abercrombie & Kent. The majority of those people who offered a reaction to my doing this trip other than, “Can’t wait to see photos!” usually said something along the lines of, “Please be safe.” or “OMG I can’t believe you’re going there. Is it safe to do that?”.

Without getting into the why behind that question because I don’t like to be too political or controversial on my blog, I do still want to say, YES. That is, I think yes it is safe to travel here to Egypt. And most especially with a company like Abercrombie & Kent.
