From Point A To …

About Me

Attainable Luxury Travel for the
Working Professional …

I’m definitely not a Road Warrior. In fact, I’ve driven a car only once in the last ten years. I’m certainly not independently wealthy. I’m just a regular guy in Chicago with a “Day Job.”

Nevertheless, I’ve managed to enjoy New Year’s Eves in London, Paris and Buenos Aires. I’ve spent a long weekend on a private luxury resort island off the Great Barrier Reef.

I’ve flown in First Class to Australia, Hong Kong and Italy.

All of those great vacations were thanks to Points. Airline points, hotel points, credit card points … even points for drinking Coca-Cola!

You name it, I’ve collected it! I’ve started this blog to share with you my strategies for achieving my Dream Vacations … and what I’ve done once I’ve arrived at my destination.

For a hardworking guy like myself, the accumulation (and redemption!) of miles and points have allowed me to treat myself to the occasional bit of luxury that normally would be out of reach of my regular paycheck. Given the fact that alot of us only have a limited amount of vacation time, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to travel in style and comfort?

Yes, I’ll come off sounding a bit obsessive in my pursuit of points. However, I guess one person’s obsession can end up being another person’s passion.  Perhaps that’s the better way of looking at things.

I have a passion for travel and seeing new places.  In addition, I subscribe to that old adage that “getting there is half the fun.”  Yes, it is “all about the journey.” So with that, let’s get this blog started and I can start telling you how to get From Point A to … well, you fill in the blank.

  1. Hi! Sorry I can’t seem to find any contact info or a way to comment on the post I’m referring to, but I just stumbled across your review of Hotel Marincanto in Positano, Italy. http://www.frompointato.com/2014/02/02/hotel-marincanto-positano-review-hercule-poirot-should-have-slept-here/ My fiance and I are getting married in Positano next month, and we’ve also reserved a junior suite at Hotel Marincanto. I was just wondering about your comment that the room didn’t have a tub, and it didn’t seem like it had a sofabed either. The hotel’s website says all junior suites have a jacuzzi tub and sofabed. Is there a chance your room was a superior room maybe? If it definitely was a junior suite, I’ll reach out to our hotel and be sure to request a tub! :-) Thanks for a great review!

    1. Hi Rachel! Thanks for reading and for your kind words regarding the review. Yes, we did reserve a Junior Suite (I looked at my original reservation email) and were in Room 212. Since we only had a shower stall you’ll want to make sure you get in touch with the hotel to make sure you get a tub in your room! That said, we LOVED our stay at the Hotel Marincanto and would definitely stay there again. You picked a great place to stay for your honeymoon. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Positano is truly magical! P.S. Thanks for the heads up on not being able to leave a comment on the post … must be a weird technical glitch which should be fixed now. Sorry about the inconvenience!
