Which is a good thing, since airline travel is a big part of Maxa's life.

Still, the savvy planner can find a way to escape the uh-oh of daily life and find an oh-wow moment or two on the road. Here are some of the avenues for doing just that. These deals were available when researched the week of Oct.

Bill Clinton, who on Thursday was named the party's presidential nominee.
