“I have to tell you sir, this is easily the most ridiculous itinerary I’ve ever put together,” said the American Airlines operator the other night as I finalized plans for a worldwide adventure that would make Marco Polo blush. “Welp, that makes two of us!” I replied.
And just like that, I had committed myself to almost nine months of international travel.
Yes, that picture above is my actual itinerary.
Beginning this January, I’ll start a epic journey that will take me across four continents, through at least nine countries, and into more than fifteen cities. I’ll fly on fifteen flights covering a total distance of 35,000 miles. To put that in perspective, that’s almost 1.5 times the circumference of the globe. While visiting these locations, I should be able to cross off over a dozen goals from my Epic Quest of Awesome.
Oh, and all of these flights are costing me a grand total of $418.36.
Now this is some impressive travel-hacking — not for the faint of heart. We love celebrating these kinds of travelers, though. Take a look at his entry and read exactly how he did it!
