Short vacations on points and miles

Many people would like to travel more often and visit all kinda of places, but we are often time constrained (vacation time from work, family obligations, etc.), and taking many weekend trips can be cost prohibitive.  But this recent post from Rapid Travel Chai illustrates how miles can be extremely valuable in taking short aspirational trips.  Sure, we would love to be able to travel to South America for a month and explore everything, but if that feasible, isn’t it better to get to go there for at least a few days, and at little to no cost?
