I know that sometimes in the travel world, posts and information come fast and furious, and even I don’t always keep up to date on EVERYTHING that is going on.  And I actually spend a good bit of time each day checking in on things – I can only imagine what it might be like for someone who doesn’t spend that time.  So periodically I like to take a look back at some of the top stories of the week or month just to make sure all the good stuff gets seen.

March was a busy month here – during my featured week on Boarding Area I was writing 4 or 5 posts a day (woah!).  So I can understand if you missed some – here were some of the top stories for March:


Family Travel for Real Life conference

I attended the Family Travel for Real Life conference early in March and it was a great time – meeting some old friends, new buddies, and learning quite a bit about travel along the way!  I live-blogged the entire conference, and if you missed any of the sessions, check it out!

Mile Matrix

This month, I (finally) introduced the Mile Matrix, an app that attempts to answer the question – “how many miles does it take to go from any country, to any other country, on any airline?”  It’s still in beta right now, but I still encourage you to check it out!
