Good morning from the Amex Centurion Lounge at LaGuardia airport! You may remember I was in this exact lounge when I wrote yesterday’s email.
Why, you ask?
Because of a travel hack that everyone should know about. And I’ll tell you about it tomorrow because today’s email is already insanely exciting…

🏔️ We’re giving away a trip to Everest Base Camp
If you found yourself disappointed after not winning yesterday’s giveaway, I’ve got good news for you.
As you may have gathered by now, we are giving away a 15-day, all-expenses-paid trip to Mount Everest Base Camp, courtesy of iTREK Everest.
Here are the details of what one lucky reader will win:
Private two-person Everest Base Camp trek
$3,000 to cover flights and miscellaneous expenses
Domestic flights to/from Lukla airport (one of the coolest airports on planet earth)
Three nights at a deluxe category hotel in Kathmandu
12 days of food and teahouse accommodation during the trek
Licensed trekking guide and porter to carry your stuff
All permits, National Park fees, and entry fees
I know, I know, It’s pretty incredible. But calm down and stop running around screaming, okay? You’re acting crazy.
When I learned that we were giving away such an exciting trip, my first thought was: I need to quit my job so I can be eligible to enter the giveaway.
After crunching some numbers, it turns out that not having a job would result in me not having any money, which is “bad,” according to my accountant.
So sadly, I cannot win this trip. But you can. Here’s how:
Click the big button below and complete a whole cornucopia of different tasks, each of which offers a varying number of entries in this giveaway.
We will announce the winner here in the newsletter on May 10th.
🏆 Daily Drop Travel Tournament: Championship
IT’S TIME 🎉 TO CHOOSE 🎉 A CHAMPION
We tried to book Christina Aguilera to oversing the National Anthem for the occasion, but she wasn’t available for last-minute events *sigh*
Regardless, we still have a very worthy, super-important, life-changing decision to make. I may be overdramatizing it a bit, but this has been a big part of our lives for a few weeks now… so it’s rightly deserved.
Here is the FINAL bracket, my friends.
There’s really no loser here. Except that there is—like in any legitimate sporting event. We’re not a bunch of six-year-olds playing for T-ball participation trophies 😬
So… Would you rather have the lush flight experience or the dreamy over-water bungalow?
Make your last vote count! 👇
Only Email Recipients can participate in polls.
Tomorrow will be the commencement of the greatest tournament there ever was. We’ll see you there 😎
🤓 Travel Trivia Tuesday
The answer to today’s trivia is the one, the only, Peanut Butter.
This tasty substance we all know and love was recently deemed a liquid, so no sneaking that Jif on the plane! Or Peter Pan, if you're that person...
The TSA recently reminded folks of the 3.4oz rule for carry-on liquids when making the distinction for this beloved snack. Apparently, this has been the rule for about two decades, but it is more recently being enforced in airport security.
“You may not be nuts about it, but TSA considers your PB a liquid,” they wrote.
Ok, TSA. That's funny.
That’s all for today…
Guys… I’m freaking out… Mount freaking EVEREST BASE CAMP?? That is so cool. This is not a trip that you can simply book for cheap or free using miles and points - this is the big leagues of travel.
I can’t wait until one of you lucky ducks wins this adventure next month. Make sure you get as many entries as possible to give yourself the best shot at winning.
Until then, I’ve got some SWEET travel hacks to throw your way this week.
