Christy’s first international travel experience was for a summer study abroad program in Italy. After that, she knew that she was destined to travel as much as physically (and financially) possible.
Luckily, her husband got a job at Southwest Airlines, so they were introduced to the exciting world of “non-rev” travel. Seven years later, she has visited over 30 countries, mostly on standby.
In the past few years, she started learning how to maximize her trips by combining standby travel with credit card miles. While she only has a few business class trips under her belt, she has always enjoyed the ability to just hop on a plane for whichever flights were open! Her favorite part of travel might just be the planning for any possibilities?!
Christy’s favorite travel destinations are Japan, Italy and Cambodia. Basically, combine amazing food and drinks with beautiful architecture and she’s happy! High on her travel wish list is Jordan, Portugal and Sri Lanka.
