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.
