Me, too. I've always had terrible jet lag and getting older doesn't help it at all! I'm still tempted to fly to Australia and back just to skip my big bday coming up in 2020 though... Right now, we couldn't but if DH retires next year we could but the thing is you usually have lots of time or money, not both (at least in my life). So with retirement comes less funding (although this hobby supports my travel addiction, it in no way pays for it unlike some of you super savvy people!) AND we still have 4 dogs and we just can't be away from them too long-it's too expensive, I worry too much and 3 of them aren't happy if we're gone too long. My DD is fiercely independent and wouldn't notice, OTOH LOL-IIRC you have more than a million Marriott points. I just played a game with myself called What would you do with SFF's Marriott stash? Answer surprising no one: transfer to Delta/United and fly fly fly first class somewhere awesome.
