Three years ago I redeemed a massive chunk of AMEX points for a Brooks Brothers gift card so I could purchase a few Non-Iron button downs for work. Yes, 1CPM! Today I woke up in Easter Island, the most remote island on Earth, having paid essentially nothing to visit (on top of Easter Island) Lima, the sacred valley of the Inkas, Machu Picchu, and Santiago staying primarily in comically massive suites at 5 star hotels.
It dawned on me this morning how incredibly far I have come in three short years. The catalyst……stumbling across Boarding Area and the incredibly bright bloggers on this forum. The need to thank those who have helped me get to where I am now (which is Easter Island) has never been more apparent than today. While I read almost every Boarding Area blogger post every single day, it was two specific bloggers that got me started hooked on this incredible crazy points and miles journey. TheWeeklyFlyer from Points, Miles and Martinis and Gary from View from the Wing got me started three years ago. The points and miles game has brought me to so many destinations I never thought possible so therefore I must say…….Thank you TheWeeklyFlyer! Thank you Gary!
TheWeeklyFlyer, Gary, I truly appreciate it. Thank you.
The bottom line
I never thought I could get here. Your knowledge led me to exactly where I thought I could never be. So to you I say….Thank you.
