Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far. Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
- One of our most enjoyable travel-related experiences in recent memory was our visit to the Pan Am Experience in Los Angeles. Spending an evening pretending we were traveling during the golden age of travel was loads of fun. Now there’s a documentary on PBS about Pan Am and I’m looking forward to watching every episode.
- There’s been much written about the new requirements airlines are putting in place requiring (or at least making a strong suggestion) that passengers wear face masks while onboard. It should come as no surprise that an airline has suspended operations (again) because passengers were not following the new restrictions that have been put in place.
- The coronavirus travel lockdown is causing many people to reconsider their credit card rewards strategy. Should you rethink how to use the points that can erase travel charges? I’m glad I burned through most of the points from my Barclays Arrival+ card, even if they were for a stay at a roadside Hampton Inn.
- What constitutes fine dining during coronavirus is not what we thought of before. Sharon and I took part in a wine dinner via Zoom chat complete with designer cocktails and videos of the meal prep. That’s nothing compared to being able to get take-out from one of the most exclusive restaurants in New York City.
- Alaska is open for tourists, with some major restrictions. In fact, with the Alaska cruise season dead in the water, our 49th state is putting into place many of the same policies that Hawaii is trying to implement for its reopening. It shouldn’t be surprising that the two most isolated states are using that distance to try and prevent a surge of COVID-19 cases in their residents. I say, good for them.
