The holidays are upon us and I have to say, I LOVE CHRISTMAS! I love the lights, the music, the food, and especially the meaning of Christmas. They are always exciting, but Christmas of 2018 was especially epic. We were happy to be able to experience the NYC Christmas season in mid-December! We couldn’t wait to see the lights, trees, window decorations, and everything NYC is known for during Christmas. I was not disappointed. It was more than I thought it would be. The tree at Rockefeller Center is something you HAVE to make sure to see while in the area. Continue reading “NYC Christmas Videos – Top Things To Do in NYC at Christmas”
This post is a little different (and way longer than usual – sorry) as I want to share our recent horrible experience as “First Class” passengers on American Airlines. We had 100,000 miles left with American Airlines because it is so hard to try to make reservations using an award ticket. Plus we have been screwed by American Airlines in the past and started earning miles through other carriers. The straw that broke the camel’s back sp to speak was when we had issues with a non-stop flight from LA to DeGaulle in Paris. About a month before our flight they discontinued that route and we had to go from LA to San Jose, then to Dallas (fun), and then on to Paris. Added about 4 hours to our flight out and then on our return, we had to stop and change planes in Chicago with a 7-hour delay there. The huge delay was real fun, NOT. I have actually tracked the top 4 U.S. carriers and found that American Airlines is the worst in flight cancellations. Please check out the link to that post if you are interested. I for one was shocked, not. Needless to say, we were tired of American Airlines and decided to use all of our 100,000 miles on a domestic flight and go first class just to use them up so we didn’t have to deal with booking 9-10 months in advance. So on Jan 28th of this year 2015, we booked flights from Denver to Newark and then return via JFK.
While in Bismark North Dakota checking our their State Capitol Building, we ate at a few restaurants that were out of this world! I will start with the our favorite Bismark food place – Space Aliens Grill & Bar, where Earthlings are welcome. We walked in and immediately felt like we were in a different galaxy. The décor features a 30-foot-high domed ceiling that displays a view of outer space. A force field of alien sculptures in the dining room, bar and arcade, showcase a variety of extraterrestrial settings and distinct personalities, encouraging each earthling to relax and enjoy the moment. It was a great atmosphere, lol. Continue reading “Bismark Food Experiences in North Dakota – They are Out of This World”
