Episode Description

He did it! Stefan from Rapid Travel Chai and the Every Passport Stamp Facebook group visited his (not last) country and joins the podcast to talk about it. We discuss how he feels after finishing this journey, what he plans to do next, his mother in law’s cooking class in Shanghai, Africa travel, and much more!

In the Patreon only Final Boarding Call segment, we discuss flying obscure routes using miles and points, the best program for earning Star Alliance Gold status, and the benefits of Delta Platinum.

Patrons, new and old, we’ve started a new Discord server – let Joe know if you need help joining!
