I’m just an average Joe. There was a time when I thought I didn’t like to travel. As a kid, I had lived overseas with my parents for a few years, which taught me to appreciate different cultures – but as I grew older I began to just stay home more and more. Then my wife convinced me to go on a two week tour of Europe for our honeymoon, and I remembered how much I appreciate experiencing different cultures and how much I grow by seeing what the world has to offer.

As time went on, we began to travel overseas more and more, jumping on price mistakes and flash fares to Europe, checking off wonders of the world, etc. We would set aside money in our yearly budget to do this, and life was good. One night though, my friend told me how he would leverage credit card sign up bonuses to travel more and more comfortably for less.

Long story short, I got hooked on points and miles and here I am today. I created this blog to chronicle my travels and share some tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way. As our family continues to grow, our travel strategies will need to evolve – hopefully others can learn from our experience. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
