Well, in typical Caroline fashion, I got too excited about writing a travel related post and completely forgot to introduce myself!
So hey, nice to meet you!
I’ve been around the points and miles world for a while, so perhaps you’ve seen my name somewhere. I used to write a blog on Boarding Area called Point Princess, but I wanted to expand my blogging topics beyond points and miles, so I started an über creatively named site called Caroline Lupini.
Since then, I definitely haven’t slowed down on the points and miles writing, but I’ve also had some fun writing a few destination pieces too.
Overall, my goal is to travel as much as I can. I have the luxury of working online, so I spend about half of the year outside of the U.S. I’ve been to 70 countries so far, and I hope to one day visit them all. I really enjoy off-the-beaten-path destinations like Iraqi Kurdistan, Algeria, and Myanmar, and I’m super excited about my upcoming trip to Iran!
When I am in the U.S., I’m based in Boulder, CO, but I also try to take at least a few trips to different domestic destinations each year as well. My favorite domestic trip from 2017 was Glacier National Park including a three day backpacking trip!
My travel style spans the full range from ultra-budget to luxury. But on average, I try to keep my travel expenses as close to they would be if I was living in Colorado the whole year. Most of the time when I’m staying at very nice places or flying in a premium cabin, it’s due to points and miles.
Here on Travel with Grant, I plan to share general tips and tricks, travel stories, airline and hotel reviews, and anything else that I think might be interesting to readers. Let me know if there is anything specific you would like to see me write about or know about me!
