Considering a Last Ditch Attempt to Snag Hyatt Globalist Status in 2021?

I’m Not Going to Brazil After All: Here Is My Cancellation Story

  Here is my previous post on the topic: I’m Fully Vaccinated With Moderna. Should I Go to Brazil This Summer As Planned? Against my best judgment I almost went to Brazil yesterday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t to be, due to a family emergency that had absolutely nothing to do with Covid. Oh well. That broughtContinue Reading
