Amol of Travel Codex (and a pretty good Twitter follow) joins the podcast to discuss how things are going in Atlanta from the perspective a doctor working in hospitals there. We also discuss Bali and why breakfast in Asia hotels is so great.
In Final Boarding Call, Amol sticks around to discuss how (and if) we are still earning miles and points during the pandemic plus some general credit card discussion.
