New Beginnings from MileValue

Hey MileValue readers! It's been a little while, and the world looks more than a little different since the last time we spoke. Things are looking different for this website as well, with new ownership and a new era on the horizon.

When COVID-19 started to spread across North America in March--and the pandemic took hold--things behind the scenes for us shifted quickly and drastically, as they did for many businesses.

I've always been a terrible photographer, which you might have noticed from my reviews of First Class flights, but I've enjoyed others' photography more than any other visual art.

2017 Travel Goals

Greetings from Patagonia!

With 2016 in the books, and my rundown of last year’s travel here, I thought I’d share my upcoming travel plans.

I pretty much know exactly where I’ll be in January and half of February, see a few options for the rest of February and March, and then have no idea what I’ll do from April on.
