The Thrill of Booking Plane Tickets

As I’ve said before, buying plane tickets is the only form of shopping I enjoy. Why?

Simple. The thrill that occurs when I click “confirm payment” on Expedia, Kayak, Cheapoair, or any of the other thousands of airline booking portals. That single 1 second action instantly transports me to some place in the future, and sets a new string of events for my life in motion.

Less than 2 months ago, I decided to seize the opportunity to Bali for Startup Abroad. A few days later, I booked my plane ticket.

Travel is entirely about relationships – and I’m now on the other side of the planet with 8 amazing entrepreneurs building lifelong friendships and business connections. To me, that’s why travel is the only form of spending money that makes my life richer.

That’s why I love clicking “confirm payment”. How about you?

    • I’m in the process of booking my next ticket now. trying to figure out where to go to transform my life next…

  • As an aside, have you used Flightfox.com? (disclosure; I am an investor) but they are saving people a ton of money and especially for international travel. Try it out to book your next trip or become an expert!

    • Hey Niki-
      I’ve heard about flightfox, but never used it. It requires I know where I want to go first 😉

      Side note, would love to get on skype for a bit sometime soon…it’s been awhile since we’ve chatted and I had no idea you had roots in the travel industry.
