I think you folks are all missing the point. The entire purpose of racking up points and status etc. is to be able to enjoy them together with your eishes chayil.

In my experience, First Class, high-roller suites in Five star hotels, and caddy upgrades are only as enjoyable as the person you choose to enjoy them with.

 

I agree, traveling isnt fun alone. But one does not have to married, a trip with a couple of friends is also great.

As crazy as it sounds, enjoying to travel was a very important requirement of mine. Sure enough, 2 years and 2 RTW trips later my wife has passed every test. Best part is that she leaves all the planning to me and does all of the packing!

My wife also passed all tests. Jordan, Egypt,Turkey, China.... But damaxer, how do you manage to get her to do all the packing. I think that deserves most credit ;-)

That's the way to do it!

Well some people don't travel to Asia for a week with 3 suitcases ;). Hand Luggage only!
