LUSCIOUS TRAVEL: How we travelled first class for free (plus taxes) on our honeymoon using points

How to collect enough miles to fly for free

 

In March 2016, Mr Luscious and I finally made things official with our little registry wedding

And in April, we set off for a much-longed-for, 4-week honeymoon to Dubai, France, Switzerland and Italy, travelling from/to Australia in first class using points.

You can see all the photos via @myLusciousLife on Instagram, including some photos from our first class travel experience (including the Emirates first class shower!) by searching for #ALusciousWedding and #ALusciousHoneymoon.

Here’s how we saved points towards our honeymoon, and for our next luscious adventure…

LUSCIOUS TAKES A TRIP: Hobart, Tasmania

Luscious heritage Hobart Tasmania - architecture - exterior

 

Luscious Lifers, we’re visiting beautiful Hobart in Tasmania, again.

We’re here to celebrate the birthday of a friend, so started with a luscious dinner at SMOLT at Salamanca Place.

It’s rather grey and dull today, but perfect for finding a fabulous cafe to work on my novel. Mr Luscious will be acting as tour guide for the birthday girl, possibly off to the art galleries and a meander through the historic streets of Hobart and the surrounding area.

Revisit our past posts and galleries from our 2013 visit to get an idea of how luscious it is here – think glorious scenery, a relaxed country town atmosphere, and sublime fresh produce:

If you know and love Hobart, let me know your recommendations for places to visit and wine-and-dine.

LUSCIOUS TAKES A TRIP: Another visit to beautiful Hobart, Tasmania

 Beautiful Hobart

Luscious Lifers, there won’t be many posts for the next few days as we’re visiting Hobart in Tasmania, again.

Mr Luscious has some work to do, and I’m having fun writing my murder mystery novel and eating like there’s no tomorrow (the food here is divine).

We’re currently in Hobart, right on Salamanca, and then spending the weekend exploring the Huon Valley, staying in Cygnet.

Revisit our past posts and galleries from our 2013 visit to get an idea of how luscious it is here – think glorious scenery, a relaxed country town atmosphere, and sublime fresh produce:
