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 try to visit a Chabad House for Shabbat and a McDonalds in every country I can
  • I once visited a country out of spite
  • While I enjoy travel, I travel primarily to learn. Travelling provides the most impactful, insightful and interesting experience available to me.
