This was our favorite travel story this week. A really great resource that outlines the cheapest places in the world, places where you can travel and stay for an unbelievable small amount of money. Not only that, but some of our favorite places to travel are at the top of this list! Pokhara and Kathmandu, Nepal? Chiang Mai, Thailand or Goa, India? How about Quito, Ecuador — a place we just visited in July? Yes, please! These are all really wonderful places we have enjoyed and spent time in, all at very low costs.

Could you travel for free with pudding? This week’s wackiest, and coolest, story was about an Engineer who earned 1.25 Million Air Miles just buying pudding. Maybe extreme, but the guy continues to rack up more miles than he can ever use with inventive methods, and he’s traveling the world for free with his millions of miles. He’s still earning miles at about 5 times faster than he’s spending them, despite traveling quite often, thanks to various frequent flyer incentive programs he keeps an eye out for and exploits just like the pudding scheme. Today, he has over 4 million miles in his various accounts and has flown to over 20 countries and taken numerous vacations in the meantime. An inspiration for us all!
