Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Austin to Bermuda Just $379 Round-Trip

American AirlinesBermuda is an island in the Atlantic Ocean, several hundred miles east of South Carolina. The national language is English.

Scott’s Cheap Flights has found Basic Economy fares on American Airlines / Delta of just $379 round-trip.

Bermuda has no rivers or natural lakes, so all water is harvested from rainfall. When you go, notice that every house and commercial building has a white roof that drains into a cistern…that is its only source of water!

Bargain Flights from U.S. to Rome, Sardinia

GodSaveThePoints blog reports on some deals on travel from various U.S. cities to Rome and Sardinia. Prices as low as $324 round-trip on Air Italy, or about $100 more on Alitalia, American and Delta.God Save The Points Logo

This is for travel in August, September and October…many experienced travelers recommend against visiting Europe in August because that is when many or most Europeans take their vacations.

If you book on Alitalia I would recommend paying with a credit card, so you will have the purchase protection afforded by that means of payment.
