Here is a roundup of posts from the last couple of weeks here at Running with Miles. We are winding the summer down! But, for our family, we are about to start planning some serious travel for a few month trip to the US so our miles and points will come in very handy for that! So far, Turkish Airlines is the winner for award availability!
