Our wife and me are planning to go to for our honeymoon in 2023. Hanoi, Bali and Singapore.
Transferred Amex points into Singapore KrisFlyer for use to arrange flights to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Hanoi via Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) and flights to Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) to Singapore and flights from Singapore to return in New York.
The best part is that our flights must be in lie-flat seats in business class.

Barbados done right
I’ve been thinking about a weeklong vacation for Barbados together with my partner in summer 2023 using the miles family travel blogger and points I earned in the year of pandemic. It will be our first trip to the world since the year 2019.
We booked Even More Space seats on JetBlue flights between JFK and Bridgetown’s Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI) by combining TrueBlue points I earned through flying honeymoon as well as Citi ThankYou points that I amassed using My Premier(r) Card. Premier(r) Credit Card.
Some to repay myself to purchase Amtrak tickets
We’ll travel on Amtrak to and from New York and Washington, D.C. between our flights. To give us plenty of time to get there, I booked one-night stays at the Marriott near JFK and the Kimpton at Penn Station using Marriott Bonvoy and IHG One Rewards points.
When we’re in Barbados We’ll be staying in the Fairmont. I’m planning to book this stay as soon as I can via the Capital One Travel. In order to pay for this stay, I’ll use Capital One miles I’ve accumulated over the years through a card with no annual fee as well as the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card that I put in my wallet in the year.
Based on the number of Capital One miles I’ll earn in the coming months, I could also be able to use some to repay myself to purchase Amtrak tickets.

My calendar is jam-packed with many different travel options this year. One trip I’m particularly eager to go on will be New Zealand with an overnight stop at Fiji.
My husband and me redeemed traveler photos the 60,000 United miles, plus $46.20 per person for a flight from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in United domestic first. Houston and Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) within and Sydney to Wellington International Airport (WLG) in the Air New Zealand economy.
We’ve made our plans to stay on New Zealand flexible as we try to secure an cheap vehicle rental to travel around the country. We’ve also booked a number of honeymoon hotel cancellations in case of emergency in the event that we don’t locate the right campervan for relocation.
In our return trip to the United States we used 55,00 Alaska miles as well as $108.87 per person for a flight between Auckland Airport (AKL) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Fiji Airways business with a stopover in Fiji.
