Weekend in Honolulu

Aloha! This past weekend I decided to go to Honolulu for 2 days (but really only 1 night). The trip was funded by Bank of America’s MERRILL + Visa Signature Credit Card, which offers up to $1000 USD in free travel upon completing minimum spend.

Book Lufthansa First Class For 40k Starpoints

As mentioned millions of times before, Lufthansa First Class is my favourite way to fly.
