Most of my travel is to the United States, for the primary purpose of seeing live music (specifically the band Phish). Most of my international travel is focused on hiking (IE the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal or the Huayhuash Circuit in Peru).

Some things to note about my travel:

  • Most of my flights are free or heavily discounted, using methods such as credit card churning or fuel dumping
  • I visit a Chabad Lubavitch House for Shabbat, and a McDonalds in every country where it is possible
  • I once visited a country out of spite
  • While I have fun travelling, my favourite component of travelling is learning about how other societies differ from mine (and ways I can improve my outlook/models of the world)
