I am still pondering and examining choices for this summer’s travel, looking for Saver Awards on United.com’s Mileage Plus site. I have enough miles to get part way around the world, but haven’t looked up one-way flights home from there. A lot of the routing to desired destinations is through tropical and Northern-hemisphere places I’ve already gone in hot summers; but the other day I went to an Asian market in Gardena, and the way the shy cashier smiled at me sort of endeared me to going through Asia again.
I always learn so much when I’m investigating travel possibilities…
