It’s a new year and a lot of people are thinking about 2011 travel plans. In fact, just today I helped clients use their points to book trips to Barcelona, Amsterdam, Athens, Hawaii and Buenos Aires. With booking all of this travel for other people, I sometimes get a little bit jealous.

So I started to think about my 2011 travel (as I currently type from sunny Punta del Este, Uruguay). I’m thinking a nice long summer trip that hits: Beirut and Byblos, Amsterdam and Bruges, Normandy (Mont Saint Michel) and then drive through Bordeaux, spend a night in San Sebastian and end up in Madrid, one of my all-time favorite cities. Sounds exhausting, but I think I’m up for it.

I also want to do Japan in April and possibly Beijing to visit a friend who is studying there, though I’m not sure if time will permit. Either way, its great knowing I have enough miles to take me all the places I want to go in 2011, without considering how many new miles I’ll rack up in 2011 (like with the upcoming Continental Mileathon).

Beyond destination, I want to try out Delta’s BusinessElite lie-flat seats and also sample Turkish and Swiss premium products, which I haven’t yet done.

What are your 2011 travel plans?

    Nice !! I only have plans for the US this year … Travelling to Denver (skiing Breckingridge) with Delta end of February (from Amsterdam). Doubting whether to see and try to have my status matched with Delta (being Platinum and last three years Gold with KLM; but hating their program more and more with 25% (!) miles in their Flying Blue). Looking for a good rate end of May to travel to Washington and New York for a week (from Amsterdam or Brussel). Flying to Los Angles 1 July (on KLM points; my last ones) and from LAX to Kona on 16 July (United points), flying back 25 July to Amsterdam from Honolulu (United points) and hoping to do Las Vegas for a week somewhere end of October beginning November. Love the US (and love points and good deals, so watching here) ! Have a great trip out there !

    2011 Travel Plans:
    1) Hawaii (trying to take advantage of IAD to HNL for $431 roundtrip)

    2). France

    3). Tokyo

    4). Costa Rica (was supposed to do in 2010, but didn’t make it)

    5). Bari, Italy

    That’s my top 5 special destinations for 2011 in addition to some domestic travel to LAX and SFO. Hopefully AA will announce it’s EQM mileage promotions asap so I also might end up in other exciting destinations for EQM mileage accrual! Safe travels!
