How to Fly 35,000 Miles, Visit 4 Continents, 9 Countries, and 15 Cities for $418

“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.

WTF?
