re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - quadfest on 5/29/17 at 9:54 pm
My wife and I just got back from South Africa - did business class there and back. We had the same problem figuring out how to use points. (Had about 270K UR and 90K MR) We ended up using a service that does all the legwork for finding the award flights, and you pay him $100 per person. T...

re: Traveling to South Africa-need flight assistance - quadfest on 5/28/17 at 9:32 am
Just got back earlier this week. The trip was amazing. Flight into Kruger is pretty easy and the airport is small, hop on a federal air shuttle is a breeze. I will say, our agent set up the flight and she reconmended atleast 4 hours before international. We landed in JNB at 2pm, and got internat...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Caribbean Honeymoon - quadfest on 4/3/17 at 8:57 pm
We honeymooned at st Lucia - sugar beach. Budget should be ok - not sure if that includes flight. We did the all inclusive. We liked the experience so much we went back for our one year anniversary and upgraded to a Beach front bungalow - I highly recommend it. We passed on the all inclusive and dec...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Need rec for a carry on booksack - quadfest on 4/1/17 at 11:48 pm
Ever decide on anything? My wife and I are going to South Africa in May so we've been reading about bags and what not. I have read quite a bit on Minaal, Osprey, tortuga, and Timbuk2. I may pull the trigger on the Minaal - seems like a great way to pack and travel and use regularly for business a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

We stayed at sugar beach, just down from ladera. I second Dasheen, and boucan. Do a boat trip to Jade Mountain late afternoon and get complimentary drinks on the terrace overlooking the Pitons then stay for dinner for sunset. We had amazing views for the drinks and for first few courses. We did t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
