I am an Autism Researcher and by night I am a mum of two young children, points enthusiast and AV geek with a serious case of wanderlust!
My points obsession came about when we were planning a trip to Asia. Both of my children love to travel, but when planning for our most recent trip to Japan I realised my son who is autistic, had suddenly gotten a lot taller and would be able to reach the seat in front very easily. He is a fantastic traveller and with the right accomodations travelling with him is a breeze, however the thought of him constantly fidgeting with the seat in front the whole flight was making me a little bit anxious.
I thought about what I could do to make it easier. Then I had it! Fly business class – the only challenge he faces with flying is the wait at security and not having enough room between him and the seat in front, and business class solves both issues. Oh wait……we have giant bills and not nearly enough money to do that. Maybe premium economy then…..still too expensive!
Surely there has to be a way……points!
I am now firmly committed to working out how to get the absolute most out of our family’s everyday spend and leverage it into opportunities to travel.
In addition to the blog post and Facebook page, which will have inspiration for family travel, I am also offering the opportunity for private consultations on how to get the most out of your points.
