John
Founder

My name is John. I am an engineer for a large non-profit organization. I call Washington D.C. metro area home, but I was born and raised in Indonesia. I came to the United States in 2007 for college and earned both bachelor’s and master’s degree in Information Technology from Arkansas Tech University.

Since I was very young, I’ve been traveling on family trips. Planes, airports, takeoffs, landings, even turbulence fascinate me! The thrill of flying is incredible! I love plane-spotting at the airport during layovers. I can point out the types of planes, the manufacturers, and their characteristics. Yet, for some reason, I’ve never cared for military planes; I am a commercial plane kind of guy.

Having spent more than a decade of my adult life in the United States, I was introduced to the “miles and points” world. I love playing this game; traveling in luxury at a fraction of the cost of a revenue ticket. And loyalty programs change over time. We’ve seen countless program devaluations. But that’s the fun part of this game, there is always a workaround to get the best value of the points and miles. I remember when I used to fly back to backred-eyes, or visited three continents within 24 hours, followed by a working day. 

As I get older, I travel less and less to earn miles. Instead, I value spending time and enjoying the destination more and spending more quality time there. I’ve learned you can still travel in luxury at a fraction of the cost, just be smart about it. I will discuss morein the next few introduction posts.

Hi everyone, I’m David. I currently live in the Pacific Northwest and teach at Bellevue College. I grew up in Los Angeles, California, but have lived all over the U.S. Throughout my life, moving around the country seemed pretty normal.

Each place was an adventure. And while some were more enjoyable than others, the experience of living in a new place, meeting new people, and trying new things was invaluable. It has given me a better understanding of others, as well as myself. Expand this into traveling the world and the learning is unlimited!

Like most people, my travel is limited by time and money; something most of us never seem to have enough of. But careful planning, being flexible, and having friends that are very travel savvy, I have been fortunate to have been able to explore some incredible places. My goal is to continue to travel and to be amazed, and to share some of my experiences with you along the way.

Let’s go!

Hi everyone! My name is Kevy. I often hear the phrase “travel is the only thing you buy that make you richer”, and I try to live up to that quote often. 

I have been traveling almost my whole life, though my specific travel interests have also evolved over time. In my college years, I frequently embarked on mileage runs – but the good ole’ mileage run days are over as we know it, save from business trips and a few decent fares that we encounter from time to time. 

Most recently, I have been focusing my travels on the actual experience, as well as the ways to learn the history and directly immerse in the cultural aspects of the said trips — of course while enjoying as much time in the front cabin (or in luxury hotels) at the same time, whenever possible. 

Admittedly, every now and then, I experience the itch to go to places off the beaten path. Most recently, my travels have taken me to a week in North Korea, spending the night in Chernobyl, and trekking to see gorillas and chimpanzees in Rwanda and Uganda. 

There are so many things to see in this world, with so little time. I look forward to sharing my experience with all of you!

Happy flighting.
