Yes indeed, just not traveling so haven't been posting.

That said, busier than ever, and doing LOTS of "traveling" so there's a few blogs bouncing around in my head which I'll post soon!

Also just confirmed: Up to $2,000 in credit for charges through Centurion Travel through 2021 - this could go a long way to justifying the Annual Fee increase this year once they release details.

Honestly, I'm starting to believe even 2021 will be a partially open travel year at best between border closings, restrictions, and virus spread. We probably won't see a year like 2019 again until at...
