My last long-distance trip was at the beginning of May to Llorett de Mar and Girona Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Barcelona (still can’t get around to finish my Barcelona trip report—pathetic!); since then my day job(s) have gotten the bestContinue Reading

I used to love TravelZoo, but I’ve been disappointed with their pickings lately, and by lately, I mean the last couple of years. This deal, however, seems to be a real McCoy.

  UPDATE: AA Glitch is fixed. (HT: DansDeals)  Despite the numerous naysayers calling me “complicit in the coverup” foradvising people not to panic.

Airline Fuel Surcharges–the Gift That Keeps On Giving!
