    Palm Springs was better than I expected. It was fantastic. In fact, one of my friends claims that it's a substitute for Hawaii. Do you agree?

Free $50 Lyft credit – highest bonus ever!

This is the highest bonus I have ever seen for Lyft! It’s worth $50, which is a very long free ride (airport, anyone?). This is an especially enticing deal now that the days of Uber code-stacking seem to be over.

Does points and miles collecting encourage unethical behavior?

How far do you go for a deal? Have your ethical boundaries changed since you discovered points and miles? What is the karmic cost of questionable ethics? I’d love to know what you think.

I’m sorry, Coachella. I was wrong about you.

This is a sincere apology. It’s a follow-up to a previous post that attracted bad vibes. I take it back and replace it instead with this positive one. Go ahead, Coachella, and do your thing. Throw some flowers in your hair and rock it out. I mean it, I’m sorry.

This “last minute” hotel booking site is quirky and fun…and they’ll give you a mystery discount.

This site is similar to HotelTonight. It’s a mobile booking app that connects travelers to rooms that would otherwise go unsold…for lots less.

The weird-but-genius thing my friend does on vacation.

My friend came up with a brilliant idea that I can hardly wait to try on my next vacation. It’s simple but very indulgent. Genius!

Indian Wells adult pool

We never left this Hyatt resort…because of these pools.

We weren’t expecting to spend all of our vacation at the pool, but the pools here were just so fantastic that we never left! And we’ll be back!
