Remember that story last fall, where a man by the name of Jordan Axani was looking for a travel companion with the same name as his ex-girlfriend, Elizabeth Gallagher, to take advantage of an already booked around the world ticket? It looks like it worked out well for them – especially since Mariott paid for their accommodation at every stop.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem as newsworthy when two lovers book the same trip a year in advance and then…wait for it…are still together to go on it. Newsworthy or not, Mr. Pointster and I are very excited that our own ’round the world trip is about to commence. Thanks to Mr. Pointster’s travel reward wisdom we’re getting a lot of free hotel nights along the way as well. Of course, should Mariott decide to sponsor our good news story (does the fact that we’re getting married help?), we’d be more than happy to oblige.
Follow along as we journey from Toronto to New York, to Milan, to Prague, to Bangkok, to Tokyo, and back, circumnavigating the globe. Via planes, trains, and automobiles (we’ll have to see about steam boats), we are going around the world in 18 days, starting April 1, and taking you with us. Because when you jet set in the digital era, good company is easy to find.
