We arrived at the Hotel Alfonso at about 3pm in the afternoon. As soon as we pulled up to the hotel through the gates, we knew it would be an absolute treat staying at this hotel.

I am sure by now everyone knows about the hottest, most hyped card in town: the Chase Sapphire Reserved.  Here is a quick rundown of why it is so hot: 100,000 Ultimate Rewards Points offer with only $4,000 spend – This is almost double the best Chase Sapphire Preferred (CSP) Card offer out there (50-55k) and the spend […]

I’ll interrupt my ongoing trip reports to post a review, I’ve been meaning to post in a long time.

I didn’t have the time to visit the Renfe Business Class Lounge on my way out from Madrid. And I quite frankly didn’t know they existed until I arrived at the train station since Renfe doesn’t advertise this benefit on their site too well.

As I mentioned in my previous post a couple of times, weather in Madrid was quite chilly and windy for the first two days of our stay. This made walking around the city and visiting Toledo or Segovia not so pleasant. When I looked at the weather report that morning, it looked as if the […]

Our flight from Heathrow to Madrid was around 2 hours long, and with an on time departure at 11:00, we landed in Madrid by 2 pm local time (30 minutes before schedule). The flight itself was completely uneventful, though it was interesting to see a female captain on the flight to Madrid. Surprisingly, in our […]

After walking off of our flight from DFW, we saw that there was no gate posted yet for our connecting flight to Madrid. From my experience most BA flights to destinations within Europe depart from the A gates, which is right next to central concessions area of Terminal 5. And so we went to the BA […]

Last week (Week of July 22-28), “TSA discovered 74 firearms this week in carry-on bags around the nation. Of the 74 firearms discovered, 65 were loaded and 29 had a round chambered.”  They also discovered two “inert grenades” in “carry on bags at MLI and PHL”.   That’s just last week!!   All I can say is: what the bloody […]

I just wanted to give everyone a friendly reminder that some of the best uses for the Hyatt annual free night certificate, from the Hyatt credit card by Chase, are disappearing on Aug 1.  According to Hyatt there are 50 hotels moving to a higher category and 56 hotels moving to a lower one. Though […]

After my New Zealand trip, it felt like an eternity before I would get chance to go another flight. I know 2.5 months isn’t that long of time, but for a travel addict like myself, it’s a lifetime. Anyway our flights to London and onto Madrid couldn’t have come sooner.
