October is one of my favorite months in New Orleans. The weather is cooling down, tons of festivals, cemetery tours, and of course Halloween.
Last September I bit the bullet and closed my Southwest Credit Card so I could justify paying $450 service fee for the sexy new Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card. I was ready to join the elite ranks of travel credit cards and start maximizing free travel while using points and miles.
Palm Springs is known for its Desert Resorts, Coachella, and Son Bono. Hollywood stars and socialites from Los Angeles travel two hours to soak in the desert sun and splash in hotel pool parties. But what if you wanted to do something different than the same ole Palm Springs Scene? What if you wanted to go on a road trip to visit something so unique and strange you wouldn’t think you were in America anymore. That is where the Salton Sea and Salvation Mountain comes into play.
In New Orleans, we have two seasons: hot and two days of cold. New Orleans weather is one reason why I love going to exciting places like taking Amtrack’s Adirondack train from New York to Montreal. If you are like me and the leaves turn from green to brown in your hometown you need to start planning your fall foliage trip!
The final day of the cruise was an interesting one. After four days full of excursions at Endicott, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan, we finally had some downtime to enjoy the ship on our own. We were a little exhausted from my days full of activities, so this Sunday at Sea was a more relaxing one.
