I am a travel hacker (check out why I travel hack). My moto is "Always be earning". This refers to earning travel miles with everyday spending. And I love to travel. It is like art when these two things come together to create a sublime moment in my personal travel history. I have traveled often and to a lot of places (not as much as those who have traveled to 100 countries, but I digress), but, I have never traveled first class. Last month I finally got to experience first class and it was worth every penny I spent. The difference here is I didn’t spend a lot of money to fly first class because of the travel hacking habits I have. It only cost $200 for me and my wife.
