I report on travel and dancing experiences on international trips from my home in Charlotte, NC USA. I also offer comments on hotel stays and hotel and airline loyalty programs I participate in. I am currently a Delta diamond medallion with over 2 million butt-in-seat air miles. I am also a Starwood platinum member with over 500 nights in Starwood properties since 1999. Thus I have earned lifetime status as Starwood Platinum, Delta gold medallion and Skyteam Elite Plus. With rollover MQM miles on Delta, I presently have enough miles to qualify diamond status through February 2020 without flying any more miles, provided I meet the credit card spend and delta does not change current qualification rules.
In addition to travel I enjoy latin dancing, primarily salsa, bachata, merengue and cha cha cha, which I got hooked on about ten years ago after experimenting with ballroom dancing. Kizomba is the next dance I’d like to learn. I find latin dancing and friendly company in every major city worldwide.
