Greg’s written a few posts about his plans for 3 Cards, 3 Continents. In a recent post he shared that he’ll be bringing along a travel companion for the trip, but he hadn’t shared who that’ll be.
This morning Greg cut in half the list of people who could potentially be joining him as he repeatedly referred to she and her. So we now know that his travel companion will be female, but he still isn’t disclosing who it’ll be.
I’ve been speculating recently in our Frequent Miler staff Slack chat as to who will be traveling with Greg – here are my guesses.
Greg’s round-the-world trip is primarily being booked via ANA, so perhaps he’s continuing that theme by traveling with someone called Ana.
The new movie about Marilyn Monroe – Blonde – comes out in late September, so maybe Ana de Armas will be joining Greg a couple of weeks before that as a way to travel the world to promote the new movie.
Greg’s cat Stripey frequently makes an appearance during Frequent Miler team meetings. In French, “the cat” is “la chat” rather than “le chat” which makes it feminine, so will Greg’s companion be feline good by being picked as his travel partner?
Carrie takes care of much of our social media content and we’ll likely have a lot of that during the 3 Cards, 3 Continents trip. Perhaps Greg has agreed to book a RTW ticket for her to join him, thereby ensuring he gets favorable coverage on Instagram, Facebook, etc.
Although Greg ended up with just enough Membership Rewards to be able to book an ANA round-the-world trip, it might be that he doesn’t have enough to book what he truly wants for his trip.
If that’s the case, his companion might be Cher so that she can turn back time and he can repick his cards. Also, imagine how amazing all of Greg’s costume changes during the trip would be.
If Greg doesn’t pick Carrie to ensure his social media game is particularly strong, Annie Leibovitz will be a good alternative so that he has the most glamorous shots to post.
This one’s for the Outlander fans. I don’t know if this would work out because I feel like not everyone can pass through Craigh na Dun based on what I’ve caught when my wife’s had the show on, but if Greg was able to pass through the stones with Claire Fraser to go back in time, perhaps they can go back far enough in time to just after Pangea started breaking apart. That way he could wade from continent to continent and pick up the three continents he needs in a matter of minutes. Go back too far though and he’ll be stuck with 3 Cards 1 Continent
My Wife And/Or Nick’s Wife
Will Greg play dirty? Maybe he’s planning on taking one of our wives on his trip, but then threatens to abandon them in the middle of nowhere unless we sabotage our own trip. It’s unlikely, but maybe my wife’s agreed to go along with his plan for not deciding to bring her along on my trip.
I think the most realistic guess is that Greg will be bringing his mom along for his round-the-world trip. Not only will that earn him lots of son points, but it should pick him up quite a few reader votes for being such a thoughtful son.
