It’s time for our next international trip! We both work very hard to earn more, save more, and invest more. Taking regular vacations help us lower our stress levels and increase our happiness. We are looking forward to traveling to Japan and Taiwan in November 2014!
We will be flying from LAX (Los Angeles) to HND (Tokyo, Japan) and stay in Tokyo for 6 days. Next, we will fly to TPE (Taipei, Taiwan) and will be staying in Taipei for 5 days. We will then continue onwards to OKA (Okinawa, Japan) and will stay there for 4 to 5 days before returning home.
We are conservative with our miles and points
As soon as we got approved for time off work, we began to search for the best way to utilize our miles. While many people get satisfaction from using their miles and points to fly first class, we are much more conservative and are happy to fly economy (which in our opinion already has lots of its own luxuries). We treat our miles and points just like cash, and are very conservative with them. This being said, I’m not condemning the use of miles and points to fly on premium airline seats: if you have the miles, you’re entitled to use them anyway you wish. We have considered “splurging” with some of our miles on business class seats for our flight home.
Today I will share how we are flying to Tokyo, Japan for nearly free using some American Airlines miles!
