Today, Wander Simply was featured on the King 5 Morning News in Seattle. A recording of the interview is available for your viewing below.
I am excited to share a big update with you all today. A few weeks ago, I left my office job of 7 years. Today, I left my home of Seattle and will be traveling the world full time and writing about my adventures on Wander Simply.
I am taking a trip to Central America this March, and my mother and sister are joining me for portions of the trip. I booked all three of our tickets with airline miles from credit cards, and here I am going to share how I did it!
This is the fourth post in our series titled, “Which Miles Should I Use?” Here I will go over details of American Airlines’ award program, AAdvantage, as well as the best uses of American Airlines miles and how to earn them with credit card sign up bonuses.
Today I will cover the strengths and weaknesses of using British Airways’ award program (Executive Club) to fly for free and how you can accumulate British Airways miles (called Avios) with credit card bonuses.
Today I will cover the upsides and downsides to using United Airlines miles to fly for free, and will go over which credit card bonus offers are best for earning United miles.
One of the most frequent questions I get about flying for free is,
“I’m going to ______, which miles should I use?”
Over the next few weeks, I am going to write posts covering the pros and cons of some of the most commonly used airline award programs so you know which miles will work best for your next trip!
I’ll go over which airlines you can book with each program (hint: sometimes it is better to use miles from one airline to book an award on a different airline!), the best places to go with each program, any fees associated with redeeming miles, and other quirks that each program might have. I will also list which credit card bonus offers you can sign up for to earn miles in each program and fly for free. This week I am starting with Alaska Airlines, my hometown airline.
Good news everyone!
Canada’s national park system is free in 2017, thanks to Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation. This might a good year to ditch America’s national parks in favor of visiting our neighbors in the Great White North!

I was awash in wonder as I climbed close to 1,000 steps to the top of the Great Wall of China. When I reached the top of the wall at Badaling — a tourist hotspot because it is the most magnificent section of the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty — I realized I was alone. No other tourists were hiking the wall as far as I could see in either direction. It was eerily quiet.
