Update: The $10 Amazon eGift Card winners are announced here.

Time flies when you’re having fun! It’s amazing to me that yesterday’s blog post was my 100th. When I starting writing here at TWG, Grant’s only instruction to me was to write what you’d like to read about. I have very broad interests, so 100 posts later, I sure have written about all kinds of different topics related to travel, miles and points.

To celebrate my 100th post, I am giving away 5 $10 Amazon eGift Cards.  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which of my 100 blog posts was your favorite.  You have until Thursday, August 17 at 11:59pm PT to leave a comment.  I will pick 5 winners on Friday morning and Grant will send the winners a $10 Amazon eGift Card.

Simple enough?  Thank you for reading and here’s to another 100 blog posts!

      Good choice. Grant finds me amazing photos to compliment the ones I forget to take! If you haven’t already been, the beaches do indeed look like the photos. Especially dog’s beach in Coronado:)

    I liked the Coronado blog as well. I was there about 30 years ago and love seeing it used in films and tv shows. Hoping to go back someday!

    I loved the series on San DIego/Coronado! Now that the Hotel Del Coronado is a Hilton property I am planning to schedule a trip there and this series couldn’t have been more perfectly timed.

      Thanks, Christine. I’ve gotten such a positive response to the Coronado posts I may have to schedule a miles and points meet-up on the Coronado beach :)

    My favorite post was one you wrote several months ago, but I saved it in my Favorites, for when I go to Vancouver. It’s titled “See, Eat & Drink: The Perfect Long Weekend in Vancouver, Canada”. I love the posts where you write not only about the hotel you’re staying at, but when you also give tips on dining and things to do. Congrats on your 100th post. Here’s to many more! :)

      Thank you so much for the congrats! Yup, Vancouver is a wonderful place to spend time. You’ll love it when you’re there. So much to see and do. I appreciated what you wrote about the kind of blended posts (see,do, eat,) that you like. I’ll be sure to write more of them! And thank you for reading :)

    Oh Gd, as you know, I love many of your posts but I guess my favorite is your BEAN around the world San Francisco Part 2 because it contains my personal favorite local roaster – Verve! Looking forward for your next visit to the Bay to try our roasters on the other side of the Bay

    P.S., did you publish your Vancouver post? PLan to try some coffee shops there next time I’m in town (aside from 49th parallel)

      OK, Jon, I promise to try the roasters in the East Bay next time. That was a very caffeinated couple of days in SF! Sssh, don’t tell anyone but I’m heading back to Vancouver soon and want to write that coffee series through fresh eyes, so stay tuned. Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to add to the conversations I start with the posts. Have a great caffeinated day!

    I really appreciated the post on “Italian Vacation Part 1: Gelato in Venice, Park Hyatt Milan Meat Slicer and the Last Supper.” I have been dying to visit Milan and I didn’t know about La Scala Museum. I love art, history and culture so this was just up my alley. Thanks for the detailed information on eateries and the gelato! YUM!

      Good choice, Leslie! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Milan. And don’t get me started on the gelato…….very YUM :) Thanks for reading, and enjoy your trip to Italy!!!

    the post about coffee in boston was super. especially because i am a coffee aficionado. and even though i now am a caretaker and horsekeeper in talking rock, ga where my niche coffee market is all but absent…i am soon to fly to visit my sister/husband/my niece in boston. they are exclusively starbucks people. and based on your post, i plan to open their eyes (and all other senses!) to some alternatives…and to funding some local shops!

    thanks!

      I’m guessing your family in Boston will enjoy your enthusiasm for trying some new coffee spots! Sounds like a fun caffeinated time for all. Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment, rm. Have a great day!

    I enjoyed your article on how to book flights using Citi Thank You points. I have a bunch of Thank You points and I never know when to use them, so this had some great advice!

      Thank you, GRR. It’s rough drinking all that coffee and then writing about it :) But visiting Boston is always easy! Have a great day.

      Thanks for reading, Mike. I see the people who read TWG have family and friends in Boston who are going to enjoy learning about some new great coffee spots:) Do let me know which of the coffee places you try worked best for you!

    You did a post interviewing an Uber driver about how much they earn I thought was really interesting… it was awhile ago, so I can’t find it now, but I swear it happened. :)

      Good choice, Joe. Whenever there’s a big story about Uber I reach out to my friend Harry and he always has the backstory for us. I found those interesting as well because it’s fascinating to understand more about the workings of the sharing economy. Thanks for reading!

    We really enjoyed your post on “Which IHG hotels you’d book with 100,00 points”.
    We don’t as yet have that many points with IHG but your article gave us a wonderful goal to shoot for and many options on which hotels to choose! Keep up the great advice!

      Thanks for your choice, Bill. My points haven’t posted yet, so I’m still studying my options. I’ll be sure to write hotel reviews no matter which IHG properties I choose. Thanks for reading!

    I love the post of your Amazing Stay at Double Tree Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle. I have family in Seattle I plan to visit soon and this would be a great hotel to stay at.
