There are many ways to travel the world from the extremely expensive to bare-bones, no frills. We’re somewhere mid-range: we want to use frequent flier miles or other points for world travel if we can to upgrade or get free accommodations when we can without working too hard at it, and we like our creature comforts. World travel is no longer limited to the very rich, or those who have retired or quit their job to travel the world. (See our work-life integration resources if you don’t fit into those categories).
