Travel Hacking 101: How To Travel Longer for Less

Evening Program

Thursday, December 8, 2016 - 6:45 p.m.
Code: 1H0189

After a decade working nine-to-five, Mike and Anne Howard decided that life is short and their bucket list was long . . . so they quit their jobs, rented out their apartment, and embarked on a trip around the world. Five years later, they are still at it—traveling across seven continents and more than 50 countries.

In a presentation rich with resources, the Howards—founders of the travel website—share practical tips and industry trends illustrating how you can travel well for significantly less. The couple describe a more immersive and creative way to travel—where saving money is but one of the pleasurable benefits.

From frequent flyer tickets to free lodging, no-cost volunteering, and hidden-gem destinations, they point out ways you can transfer from the “tourist track” and move out as a globetrotter—on any budget.
