Each week I like to spotlight a few of the things that caught my eye on P2B this week….

I have loved the series from Travel With Grant on his trip on the Amtrak Coast Starlight.  I have wanted to take one of the epic Amtrak route and loved all the details in this multi-part series.

Have you heard about the massive unclaimed luggage store in Alabama?  Points With a Crew has the scoop.

Muslim Travel Girl spotlights Sofia, Bulgaria.  I visited Bulgaria for the first time this past summer.  I didn’t make it to Sofia but now I want to! Uber has made South Park.

Hungry For Points shared that humorous milestone for the ridesharing company.

The Forward Cabin shared highlights of the making of The Amazing Race.  I filmed an audition tape for the show (two of them, actually) with a FlyerTalk pal back in 2005.  I still can’t believe the didn’t think the combo of Orthodox Jew and Shiksa in the City wasn’t pure gold!

The CEO of Emirates doesn’t believe that MH 370 crashed in the Indian Ocean, according to Fly2Travel.  (Guess what… I agree with him – I’m a total conspiracy theorist on this one!)

Miles to Memories is midway through a review of Norwegian Getaway.  I’m looking forward to his thoughts – I cruised on this ship back in March when she was still fairly new – it’s always interesting to see what a few months of maturity bring to a product.
