Is this another travel hacking blog from a travel expert that always travels in business class and stays in 5 star hotels all over the world for pennies because he has millions of miles/points from credit card applications and other tricks?
Ha! Far from it. In fact, I just began collecting miles and points a couple of months ago (at least the smart way) and I have only been out of the US twice- and both times it was work related. This is the real beginning of my journey. I want to share all of what I learn along the way as well as write about some of my travel experiences.
I’ve been following the world of “travel hacking” for a few years now, and remember reading this article about living like James Bond http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2011/09/12/live-like-james-bond/ and immediately wanting to get started into the miles and points collecting game. There was one thing holding me back. I couldn’t get the credit cards with the large sign up bonuses, and there’s a very particular reason why… probably not what you think. Stay tuned for the story.
