You could do it if you live on east coast and fly back and forth to Australia 6.5 times which will take a min of 6.5 days. So hopefully you have 3 free weekends and $15k to drop on flights. Good luck in this project!

You are correct D4! Currently suffering from the jet lag if this exact trip

Your math is wrong @88, it's about 48hrs round trip including layover - for ~20k miles. Multiply by 6 and you get about 12 days, add a round trip to LA and make it 12.5-13.

My bad OP - hopefully you are free all the weekends left in the year but good news! Still should only be around $15-16k with LA trip. Averages about $2,500 round trip if you sit in coach. Maybe I'll see you one one or all of my flights.

Delta diamond is 140k, isn't it?

@firm Are you flying there for work? Jealous!

@E1 it's 125k miles or 140 segments. @D4 I am! Global client, it's cool I am enjoying it.

😂😂😂 some great replies in this thread

I wish Delta would give an actual medallion made of the element that matches membership level, with options for engraving and chain size.

@firm Can you bring me back some Tim Tams next time? 🙏🏻

Amazing troll post @OP... unless...

@firm: The dark chocolate ones? 😍

I went on a weekend hiking trip with a male friend who I thought was platonic, assuming we’d split everything 50/50. I booked activities and car rental totaling $700, while he booked the hotel. During the trip, he tried to hook up, and I made clear I wasn’t interested. It made the rest of the trip awkward, but even more so when I said we should split expenses evenly…and then he told me the hotel cost $1800 for two nights. Con’t

Fun fact for those that are lending USDC stablecoins: apparently, one of the perks of the new BlockFi rewards credit card is that they add 2% to your yield. 7.5% + 2% = 9.5% interest Let's hope their engagement with the state of New Jersey goes well.

Can't decide if this thinking is crazy or smart: Staying in consulting for another 1-1.5 years for good maternity healthcare benefits and smoother pathway to ramp off and back on work, with opportunity to extend leave further with limited professional risk (e.g., in corporate a backfill might become your permanent fill). Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized
