I'm gonna let that slide until you watch some legit GOAT contenders. It's not a movie, but you should absolutely watch Band of Brothers. IMO, nothing else really compares in the war category. As far as movies, you specifically want WWII, or any era of war drama?
Yep. The Pacific is terrific as well.

I don't know what T&C means, but i noticed that there is a discrepancy between the old and the new website, if you look at your profile on the new website you see like this.
T&C = Terms and conditions.

Update: it seems the executive elite status never expires.
From the T&C it seems it'll expire if you don't have the required activity in 2019.

Sickening. Every one of those guys screaming Nazi should be required to spend a day in a Holocaust museum.

What a disgrace using that term like that!

I haven't been on a trip with just the Mrs. and I in over 3 years, and may have a week we can go somewhere Sunday-Sunday at the end of October.

Open to any suggestion of where to go/stay.

(Some background: We are leaning towards Barcelona/Mallorca/1 other Spanish city. We want to do South Africa at some point.)

Thanks!
Would be way too short for South Africa.

I'd say South America makes more sense than Europe for a Sunday-Sunday as it's pretty much the same flight time from MIA with the added benefit of no jet lag.

You can do Patagonia or Atacama.

Damn that jump, I did not see that coming.
Why not? After the settlement it is pretty much business as usual.

-Kosherworld delivered food to airport and picked up SIM
-JNB-MQP in Y (Approx. $80 PP - Should have driven in hindsight)

-Protea Nelspruit (7.5k Marriott)

Wednesday:
-Entered KNP through Malelane Gate and drove up to Skukuza airport with some detours
-Returned car at SZK
-Transferred to Notten's Bush Camp for 2 nights ($750 per night)

Thursday:
-Notten's Bush Camp

Friday:
-Transfer to SZK after morning game drive
-SZK-CPT in Y (Approx. $250 PP)
-Protea Sea Point for 2 nights (15k Marriott per night)
-Sahbbos food from Goldie's Deli (delivered to hotel)

awesome thank you. I quickly looked at your TR and will probably message you for some more details as I get a better understanding if you wouldn't mind. I'm thinking of trying to loop in victoria falls also. Better to do it on my way to SA or as I'm leaving?
Having done a 10 day trip last year including Victoria Falls, I'd say if you only have 10 days you should skip the falls and focus on SA.

Surprisingly enough, the Yiddish (or "Yiddish", as the case might be) version is way more accurate:
