I work with United Airlines and my wife and I have taken advantage of flight privileges to travel to all of the places on our list for personal travel only. (Except for New Jersey on my list) Cultural, language and logistical travel struggles are what we are excited by for each new trip we take.
The airline industry has only been the catalyst in our travel acheivements. Our own desire to explore and clubs like the MTP and Travelers Century Club have fueled our dreams. With such incredible pricing now-a-days, anyone can reach most countries on a moderate income. Remember, I may work in the airline industry... but we're subject to the same variables as everyone else once you arrive at a destination!
I encourage anyone to start traveling and strive to see new places. Map out the world, circle your dreams and get to it!
My Favorite Places:
Lord Howe Island / Rodrigues Island / Sipadan, Sabah, Malaysia / Bali / Taveuni, Fiji / Marburg, Germany / Suzdal, Russia / Napier, New Zealand / Long Beach, California / Rome, Italy / Paris, France and Munich during Oktoberfest... my beer heaven!
