By: Bryce Conway 0

Today we are going to tackle one of the most common questions I get. Does closing a credit card hurt your credit score? Let’s start with a succinct answer. Closing a credit card will likely have little to no effect on your credit score. Boom. I said it. Now before you send me an email […]


Tools Used by the Pros: One of My Favorite Travel Apps

By: Bryce Conway 0

Many of my readers like to picture me as the world’s savviest traveler, cruising through airports with the ease and grace of a Broadway dancer. Truth be told, that wasn’t always the case. In fact, I used to be that guy who printed all of his confirmation emails and carried them around in an oversized […]


Get More Out of Travel (and Life) by Doing Less

By: Bryce Conway 0

Today’s post is going to take a different approach than many of my previous posts. We’re not going to talk about how to save money on travel. There is absolutely no mention of points, miles, or credit cards (other than in this sentence). And yet this might be the best advice I share with you […]

Hotel Review: Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht

By: Bryce Conway 0

  On our recent spontaneous European getaway to Amsterdam, my wife and I stayed in the beautiful Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht, located right along the Prinsengracht Canal in downtown Amsterdam. This boutique, 120 room hotel was added to Hyatt’s new Andaz collection in late 2012 and still has the look and feel of a brand new […]


How You and Your Friends Can Travel to Europe Next Winter for <$200 Each

By: Bryce Conway 0

A couple weeks ago I flew to Europe for the weekend (again). That’s right. More than 8 hours of flying, each way, just to spend a couple days exploring Holland. I would say that the trip took a lot of thought and planning, but that would be a lie. In fact, I went from idea […]

By: Bryce Conway 0

Yesterday was one of the biggest first-world-problem letdown days of my life. The day began with me booking a $20,000 first-class itinerary for $142 (which would have only been my second best booking of 2015), continued with the news that House of Cards had released their 3rd season early, and ended with both of those […]
