Backblaze is at it again with their amazing special offer, and I want to do something special, too. But first, some backstory.
I’m a VERY satisfied Backblaze customer and recommend it to everyone I know. When I was considering which cloud-based backup company to go with, my friend Stefan over at Rapid Travel Chaiwas the one who gave the thumbs up to Backblaze. Not only that, but this year he gave me a great lead on a coffee spot in Seattle that is excellent, and you all know how picky I am about my espresso. Now it’s time for me to say “Thanks, Stefan”.
I’ve been told by many people in Europe and Asia that we Americans are geography-challenged. Maybe it’s true and we aren’t as geography-savvy as we should be. I know for myself, if someone mentions a place, whether it is a city or a country I’m not familiar with, I’ll do some research. I like geography and knowing where places are.
I can’t believe this happened again, though with a different friend. Doesn’t he read my blog posts on TWG? This time on my friend’s FIRST day, which was to start a seven week trip around Mexico, the ATM ate his debit card. He had no cash on him. His bank told him they’d send a new debit card, but after tracking the card’s delivery and waiting four days, my friend had doubts about getting his card.
I just discovered an important task that somehow never got done. Small tasks often have big benefits, and I don’t want to miss this bonus. Maybe because I was traveling during October, but holy cow, I never activated my Freedom card for this quarter’s bonus spend.
It’s always good to know at least a few words in the local language of our destinations, don’t you think? Right now we can’t help but catch the news about Brexit. No matter how you feel about whether or not it’s a good or less good happening, and especially if you’ll be traveling to Europe soon, this Brexicon will come in handy.
