2011 Trip Report Update + Win Delta In Flight Certificates


This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

In 2011 we had plenty to celebrate and a plethora of points and miles, so we set off for one of our best travel years ever. Below are most of our 2011 trip reports. I’m giving away Delta in flight certificates if you leave a comment with what report you’d like to see completed next and why. Back in November I ran a small contest to guess why we titled our a personal travel schedule the “Year of the B” and we received some great responses. For the travel plan, we identified locations starting with a B, went for it and had the time of our lives.

Comments

  1. I would like to see a report from Tibet. Tibet is an amazing place I believe and it would be interesting to find you take on it.

  2. Winter is here and time for a long trip south is not always in good supply. Please complete your trip report on the Bahamas! (My next choice would be Puerto Rico.)

  3. I have a record of all the comments to date for this thread. As you may know BA comments were deleted from the 24th, but I have an email / trace record that I will run the promotion off of. So rest assured if you’ve left a comment (even if its not currently showing) you’ll have a fair shot at the delta in flight certificates. Current comment count is at 29, even though it only shows 6.
