My Strategy for the JetBlue All-You-Can Jet Promotion

As anyone who follows my tweets knows, I'm going to be doing the JetBlue All-You-Can-Jet promotion. Because I'm flexible, I saved $200 and bought the five day pass for $500, which means that I can't fly on Friday or Sunday. The pass entitles me to fly from September 7th until October 6th for free on all JetBlue flights. This includes all taxes in the US, but not outside the US. I've been thinking about the best way to use this pass, and I'm going to share my strategy with you, in case you bought one as well.

Mostly International

There aren't all that many places in the US I want to go. Within a month or two of the promotion I will have been to NY, Boston, Austin and LA, which covers most of my bases. So I'm mostly seeing this as a ticket to get HUGE discounts on international travel for a month.

Adoption Journey, Day -10

On The Lunde Adoption Blog 2014

We are preparing for a very exciting journey.

"We" are my mom, my dad, and I. My name is Jakob, and I am 8 1/2 years old. I am Norwegian, but I was born in Colombia and used to live there when I was little, before my mom and dad came to adopt me and take me home.

Now we are going back to Colombia for the first time. Not to the city where I was born, but to another city. The reason is that I am going to get a little brother! We are all very excited!

I am writing this blog to tell you about our trip. I could write it in Norwegian, but I don't trust on-line translators, so my parents are helping me write it in English, so that more people can read it. (They are also helping me to think of things to write.)

My parents tell me that in Colombia people speak Spanish. I used to know some Spanish, but I forgot it completely when I was three years old. Now I know only Norwegian. But who knows — I may pick up some of the language while we are there to collect my little brother! And I believe my parents will, too. They like everything that has anything to do with languages. :-)
