Spencer Howard (now of One Mile at a Time!) returns to discuss booking round the world itineraries. We talk some logistics and also debate whether it’s realistic to book RTW tickets, while comparing RTW tickets with one way segments. Elsewhere, we chat about what to do in Spencer’s home state of Kentucky.
We bring on two Hawaii regulars – Tim Brooks and Rose, to chat about all things Hawaii. How to get there with miles and points from the East Coast, West Coast, the limited business class space, and fair cash prices round out our airfare discussions. Then we take a look at great places to stay on every island before rounding things out with some recommendations on things to do. An episode to bookmark for your future trip!
Cynthia Drescher, who you may know as JetSetCD, is an avid traveler who spends half her time on the road. She writes for Conde Nast and joined the podcast to discuss the difference between an arctic/Antarctica cruise, fun festivals in Germany, and…cryptocurrency? We also chat about how in 2018 every festival seems crushed with people and offer suggestions for “small” events to check out around the world! Cynthia inspires me to travel more and I hope she’ll inspire you too.
Matthew Hague from Saverocity returns to discuss a litany of topics including his never ending Las Vegas M Life status gig, cruising and how to save money on cruise excursions, dealing with a canceled flight (and a three year old!), feeding said three year old on the road, and South African wines. Elsewhere, we talk lessons learned from NapaDO and tips for redeeming Merrill+ credit card points.
