Miles/Points Redemption for Tokyo/Seoul in May 2016

 

Happy new year! 2016 will be a challenging year to amass miles/points but I’m up for the challenge!

We have a wedding to attend on the beautiful Jeju Island so we’re going to make the most of this long journey and stop by Tokyo, Kyoto and Seoul.
