Flying First Class Emirates
As you may have guessed by now, I love traveling. There’s something so special and so exotic about visiting a distant land, a place so different from the place I call home. I can find something I love about all destinations but my favourite places are often the ones that are so different from where I come from. I love the culture shock. I love learning new things and meeting people from a completely different background. It’s that love for travel that led me to the art of travel hacking. Without learning how to maximize credit cards for travel rewards, I wouldn’t have been able to afford many of the flights I’ve taken, especially the fancy ones such as flying first class on Emirates.

I’m an adventurer at heart. I love scuba diving, hiking, and standing next to permanent lava lakes, such as Erta Ale in Ethiopia. However, I’m also practical and try to be as safe as possible. That’s one of the reasons why I always get travel insurance when I leave Canada. Aside from some stomach issues I’ve had in countries such as Indonesia, I’ve never had to use it, but still, it’s a great thing to have because if something ever does go wrong, costs can add up pretty quick. It’s just a great peace of mind to know that I’m covered, financially, if something were to happen. Read more

business class Air canadaTravel has completely changed my life. Since 2009 when I first landed in New Zealand and Australia for my first solo long-term backpacking trip, I have been to six continents and 35 countries and have learned so much about life and this place we call Earth.

I’ve also learned a lot about travel hacking. Before taking the frequent flyer mile industry seriously, I did what most people did. I had some rewards cards and used them occasionally when making a purchase. I never seemed to have enough points for actually getting on a plane. Oh how times have changed.

Since making travel a priority and learning everything there is to know about earning and redeeming frequent flyer miles, I’ve used them to take trips I never would have been able to afford such as flying first class on Emirates and flying around the world in business class for next to nothing.Flying over Mexico City

It’s lead me to create this site as well help hundreds of Canadians take trips they’ve always dreamed of. I’ve given live talks in front of 400 people and been featured in national press across the country.
