MtM Podcast – Epic Trip Scandinavia Ian Snyder

On this episode Shawn is joined by MtM Senior Contributor and FamilyFlysFree author Ian Snyder. Ian has been earning and redeeming miles & points at a high level for many years and also writes for Award Wallet and other outlets.

In this episode we dive deep into Ian’s recent back to back Europe trips which included treks to Scandinavia and Switzerland. He breaks down his redemptions on AA, SAS, Swiss and United plus gives us reviews of the United Polaris lounge and some of the cool things he saw along the way. We also discuss his bond to Guy Fieri, the Victorian Village and how much of a headache it is flying out of a small town airport.

I hope you enjoy this episode!
