travel deals at the boston globe travel show, and penguins

Posted by susan on February 23rd, 2009. Filed under: everyday adventures.

Bryce and I braved the freezing rain and made it to the Boston Globe Travel Show yesterday. It was extremely productive.

As we set out to sign up for as many drawings as possible, to score free trips to anywhere, we stumbled upon the Seaworld Orlando booth and there were penguins, real live penguins…




They are so cute I can’t even stand it.

Our next order of business was to find out what deals Montreal had to offer, as you many remember from my New Year Resolutions, this is a city that we want to tackle on one of our weekend getaways. We grabbed a brochure that listed some hotels deals, which will definitely come in handy for when we plan our trip. You can find them at

We also got some information on taking The Cat up to Nova Scotia, which is a trip that I want to take with Mike, as soon as we come across a lull in weddings.

We also stopped by the Malaysia booth. And I still can’t really believe it but, it looks like Malaysia Airlines has incredible round trip airfare deals from Newark to:

Stockholm, starting at $209

Kuala Lumpur/Singapore, starting at $588

Bangkok/Saigon, starting at $590

Jakarta/Surabaya, starting at $590

Denpasar/Manila, starting at $590

Hanoi/Phnom Penh, starting at $590

Sydney/Melbourne, starting at $1,203

Perth, starting at $1,003

These apply when you travel between Feb 16 – May 31 and you must purchase the tickets by March 31. You can call their NY sales office at 212-697-8994 or email

We are seriously thinking about making a trip to Stockholm…
