Travelling to Canada

Time to leave the sunshine coast of Florida.  I’ve been here since early December, and usually leave late in March.  Unfortunately, Easter arrived so bloody early I got stuck here.  My travel day is set for Sunday, the 7th of April.

My first stop will likely be at the Best Western in Bennettsville, South Carolina.  No particular reason, except I’m trying to keep my Diamond member status, and driving on I95 through the southern states is rather bleak.  Most cities are located well off the highway.

From there, I’ll arrive in Bear, DE to visit a friend for a few days.

The next stop will be the Genetti Inn & Suites in Hazle Township, PA.  A friend is staying there on a short golf vacation.  I’ll be catching up with him for one day.  After that, I should be in Canada on 12th April.


2013 is the first summer in some time that I don’t already have travel plans in place.  I’m town between visiting the east coast of Canada or taking a trip down Route 66 in the US.  The cost difference between the two is substantial.

The big event for 2013 has already been booked.  I’ll be leaving for Turkey on 31st October, visiting Istanbul, Ankara, Cappadocia and a few other cities.

Frequent Flyer Follies – The End

The story is over….

I checked my Aeroplan account today, and my balance has made a considerable jump.

There were two flights remaining from Egypt Air, dating back to September, which had never been credited to my account, despite my jumping through hoops providing proof.  My Aeroplan number was even on the boarding pass.

I can’t discern when these credits came through, since they show up on the dates my flights would have occurred.  None of credits specifiy Egypt Air – all are from “AE Customer Service”.

  • 4,200 Miles dated 31 August
  • 314 Miles dated 3 September
  • 530 Miles dated 7 September

Having arrived at this point, I won’t pursue this any further.  The 4,200 miles must be for JFK – CAI, although I was credited 5,600 miles for CAI – JFK.

Two weeks ago I flew United to Las Vegas, a total of five flights.  All but the last connection JAX – TPA have been credited to my account.  I don’t think I’ll bother following this up.

Unless Aeroplan does something to piss me off again.
