I was interviewed over at McCool Travel this morning about my travel style.  If you’re interested, here’s a sample of the interview:

* a favorite travel memory is …

One fun memory comes from my very first trip that I got for free with miles and points.  We went down to South Florida and stayed in a middle of the road hotel for the first 2 nights.  For the last night, I told my wife that I had screwed up the hotel reservation and we had to leave the hotel since they were full.  I pretended to just drive around looking for a new place to stay, when in reality I had booked us a night on an oceanfront room on the 19th floor of the 5 star Hilton Fort Lauderdale.  Needless to say my wife was totally floored when we pulled up!
