(This is a destination-related post, not miles and points, but it’s fascinating so read on if you choose….)

There’s a new pool in London, and while you can’t currently swim in it unless you are the resident of a very exclusive complex, it begs the question of IF you would swim in it should they ever open it up to the public as a ticketed attraction.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Certainly we all know about the fabulous and iconic infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, which requires that you be a guest of the hotel, but what if it was suspended in mid air?

This new pool is suspended in mid-air (115 feet up!) and is only for use by residents of Embassy Gardens (and their guests, if you know a resident!) in southwest London.

Now, I’m sure that some world-class engineering went into this pool – desiined

According to the Ballymore website, this was created by HAL Architects and a structural engineer named Eckersley O’Callaghan along with acrylic fabricator Reynolds Polymer Technology.

As a non-engineer I must wonder…. what if the weight in the middle of this pool unexpectedly exceeded expectations. What if everyone in the pool was “brilliant” enough to try to make some crazy waves that changed the weight dynamics? What if it collapsed (which would suck down everyone in the pool including those not on the glass portion)?

But what about you? Is this a new bucket list attraction? Or a hard pass?

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
