Miles, Points, and Travel

It would have been up sooner but had to wait for my MacBook to finish updating to the new Mac OS High Sierra. Up and running and going pretty smooth so far!

And that is it for this week! We had family just arrive again – on Ryanair – without any problems other than delayed flights so that is good! I am still trying to handle planning some very complicated travel plans for the next few months. I almost had it and then one element disappeared. Oh well, it can be fun!
