Going Around The World Next Week — Unintentionally
S tarting next week, I will be embarking on a trip around the world — and I would like to know your thoughts on how you would like for me to report on it.
The reason why I say unintentionally was that I have a meeting in Dublin scheduled in early October — and what started as trying to find a reasonably low airfare turned into this journey around the world to countries such as South Korea, Hungary, China, Spain and the Philippines.
Here is my itinerary — and no, it is not a “mileage run”:
The airlines on which I will be traveling are Delta Air Lines, Alitalia, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, China Eastern Airlines…
…and Ryanair — twice. It will be my first time as a passenger on an airplane operated by Ryanair.
When I mentioned this itinerary to Ben Schlappig of One Mile at a Time a couple of nights ago, he uttered two words in astonishment:
Yes, Ben — the entire itinerary will be in the economy class cabin…
…and all for fewer than $1,600.00 — including all taxes and fees.
I do not want to bore you with a 374-part trip report; so I am thinking of simply doing a bunch of short trip reports similar to the ones I have posted here in the past couple of months — as their own trip reports rather than part of a massive trip report…
…and I want the trip reports to inspire you to embark on your own journey — not just simply highlight my travels. Please offer me suggestions about what you want to read.
Meanwhile, I am getting the final lodging arrangements in order — although I could use some advice for a hanok in Seoul for one night…
