Listen now
In this episode, we're whisking you away on a global adventure from the vibrant streets of Austin, Texas, to the magical world of Disneyland, and across the pond to the historic landscapes of Scotland. Join us, the Travel Mom Squad (Pam, Jess, and Alex), as we dish out the details of our latest journeys, all fueled by the power of points and miles. Austin, Texas - iHeart Podcast Awards First up, Pam and Alex hit Austin for the iHeart Podcast Awards. Nominated for Best Travel Podcast, we share the excitement, the glamour, and yes, a little bit of the nerves that come with walking the red carpet. From dressing dilemmas to rubbing elbows with celebrities (or nearly missing them), this trip was a whirlwind of emotions and an unforgettable experience. And though we didn't snag the award this time, we left with full hearts and even funnier stories.  Disneyland - A Dream Come True Next, Alex takes us to the happiest place on earth - Disneyland. This wasn't just any trip; it was a carefully planned adventure on a budget. Staying at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach before heading to the magic of Disney, we had beach days, park days, and everything in between.   Scotland - A Journey Back in Time Jess wraps up our travel tales with her family's trip to Scotland, a land rich in history and breathtaking views. Flying with Singapore Airlines in premium economy, they started their journey in the vibrant city of Edinburgh before venturing to a real-life castle, Schloss Roxburghe. Jess shares how they maximized points for stays in historic hotels, navigated the scenic train rides, and soaked in the culture and beauty of Scotland. From Edinburgh Castle to the oldest pub in Scotland, this trip was a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. We've had a blast and can't wait to share all the tips, tricks, and laughs from these trips. Whether you're dreaming of your next big adventure or just looking for inspiration to use those points and miles, we've got you covered. So, what are you waiting for? Dive into our travel stories, get inspired, and start planning your next journey. Hit play to join us on these incredible adventures and maybe start plotting your own!
