Working a 50-hour-per-week desk job with only 3 weeks of vacation per year doesn’t mean you can’t see the world. Since 2008, Laura and Lance Longwell have been blogging at Travel Addicts, writing about how to maximize a North American vacation allotment while cave tubing in Belize, cruising the Nile in Egypt, or exploring the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Laura and Lance have pretty much always had the travel bug. When he was a child, Lance’s parents ensured he saw all 50 U.S. states by the age of 15. Laura’s parents sent her to England for a month in preparation for moving halfway across the U.S. for college in Manhattan. Over the last 15 years, they have travelled together across 5 continents, taking in street art, food markets, music, and the tasty beverages of their various destinations.
Business travel and a desire to mix convenience with value have led them to use frequent flyer miles and hotel loyalty programs regularly to offset the costs of travel and gain upgrades (who doesn’t want to fly first class to Paris?). They write about their experiences with points and miles, teaching others the art of travel hacking.
