I’m trying to decide on a hotel in the Maldives - currently choosing between the W Maldives and the Park Hyatt Maldives.
Welcome to all my fellow travelers. Travel is a great way to open your eyes to the world we live in. To experience new cultures & customs & embrace diversity in our world which makes being human so special. Due to Covid travel has been definitely not a priority for most people. As travel changes in our society due to borders opening and technology let's discuss and share on the experience so we can adjust to our new world and prepare for a safer experience which could be inspiring-

Has anyone had success traveling with a 4 month old? We are debating traveling for thanksgiving this year (5 hour car ride, could be longer with traffic) and would be staying at a hotel. Lots of family will be there who want to meet him for the first time. Is 4 months a dangerous time to disrupt a routine and sleep training?
SWA 🐠. I am 450 points short of my companion pass and would like to take a trip this weekend to see my brother. Other than a points run, any thoughts on how to close that gap quickly?
I'm so disappointed that luxury hotels are still so expensive. I thought Covid would allow me to snatch up some deals, but that never happened
One of my friend recently joined and he based out in east coast where as his project is in west coast.
Does he need to travel or relocate to new location? Not sure how PDM model works. Please help
Are the larger hotel chains (Hyatt, Best Western, etc.) better to work for than the smaller one-off organizations? I'm sure they're not all the same but I'm curious
Hello Everyone, i am working as a contractor with ZS and now i wanted to come to zs office. Will ZS reimburse all my expenses including travel and stay for a month.
My flight to Italy was cancelled, and Delta rebooked me for an alternative flight 2 days later. All of my lodging reservations, train tickets, and ferry tickets got impacted due to this cancellation and have to add more cost to my trip. How can I handle this? Will Delta compensate for this? Any suggestions to deal with this situation?

Thoughts on Air Europa? Looking at a flight that would use KLM to get from the US to Europe then Air Europa for a 2hr flight to my destination. Price is great but I worry that with the horrible reviews and non-refundable tickets, it would be just my luck to end up like people in the reviews stranded after a last minute cancellation or some other bs.
Anyone have a gym bag they travel with? Looking for some recs! Ideally something that has enough room for two pairs of shoes (lifting and gym shoes), accessories, and supplements. Durable for travel.
Hey all. My advice for fellow “new grads” I’m 2 years out. But my advice is to try and jump into travel PTA or PT with an agency. My take home has been 1.4K - 1.7k weekly working in SNF mostly. But i don’t feel burnt out and I feel like im in control of my career. Also it’s good for networking around the country.
Any fellow married ladies here? How do you keep up with the challenging travel schedule and work culture in consulting?

I admire those people. Protesting for freedom at -50C (-58F), and risking their life to change things in Russia. Our democracy/republic might not be perfect, but we are blessed to have it. We should never take it for granted.
For the most part, I would still like to get married. However, practically every married friend that I have is trying to passionately discourage me from ever doing so. I mean, like 80% of them are decrying that this is the worst mistake they’ve ever made, hands down. Now, should I just chalk it up to perhaps the type of friends that I have, or is this actually sage advice that I should be taking more seriously? Thoughts?
If it helps, I’m F and so are the discouragers; ages 38-40.
Will only probs be 65-70% utilized end of year. Junior, takes into account 3 weeks for honeymoon. Great reviews from partners though (i’m in a small group). Am i ok?
Salaam. 26 M. Houston. My hobbies are traveling, watching sports, and hanging out with friends. Hope to get married this year, ان شاء الله.

Question time! Two part. 1) What dating sites or apps are you on and 2) do you feel like it’s been particularly tough dating in your 30s/40s during COVID, assuming that we probably date (on average) more seriously than 20s peeps? I personally have only been on one date! A zoom one last week.
Thought I would share something positive with the group. Sat AM, family member calls and says second cousins son needs a massive operation, we as family should send some money to help out since the family in need is just living on monthly wages. Made 3 phone calls and within hours we collected more than half of the operation cost. Proud to see most of the family members contributing more than I had expected
