*Post update: The OneWorld RTW tickets have been discontinued. No, seriously. I bought 14 flights for $346. Many people have asked me, “How can you afford to go on such a huge trip???” or “I wish I had the money to travel around the world.” It may sound like a ridiculously expensive and foolish thing to do, but it doesn’t […]
Dave and Deb wanted to know what changed you? When did travel become not just a break from regular life but a lifestyle?
