Every day I check in at Prior2Boarding to see what my fellow writers have found interesting in the world of travel, loyalty programs, and their various areas of interest.  There are over two dozen of us hosted there and you can always find around Prior2Boarding a cross-section of different experiences and viewpoints.


Each week I learn something new – usually several “somethings” worth – and in turn, I like to share my favorites with my readers.

I love tempura… and nothing is better than a tempura restaurant in Japan (something that makes eating tempura anywhere else seem like a pale shadow of an experience.  The Points of Life shared a photo review of an exclusive spot in Kyoto that made me hungry!

If you travel internationally and shop, you may want to read up on the latest counterfeit grabs from US Customs courtesy of Travel Blawg.

I’m a sucker for a good blowout (just got one yesterday!) and The Travel Sisters made my radar with a list of salons offering outcall services.  Wet hair and a hotel room?  That’s enough for a blowout to come to me – and other beauty services too… hallelujah!!!

If you live for secret travel information, then you probably have snagged at least one mistake fare.  Hungry for Points offered 9 tips to be ready when the next great mistake fare comes around.

Two separate posts from The Shutterwhale caught my eye – possibly because I’ve got my Singapore to Bali cruise embarking in two weeks.  One was about possible upcoming visa waivers for Indonesia and the other about changes to weekend stay possibilities at the Grand Hyatt Singapore.

These are just a few of the many interesting things that appeared around Prior2Boarding this week.  Don’t forget to bookmark both Jetsetter’s Homestead and Prior2Boarding to stay on top of all the interesting tidbits we cover!
