A friend over at Free in Freedom shared his upcoming round the world itinerary and my first thought was he and his wife definitely give a new meaning to the term trip of a lifetime. They booked a series of award tickets that will take them around the world over a 10 week period. The best part is that all of the tickets were booked using a various number of techniques to maximize miles and points.

Trip & Route Details

The AA Business ticket is:
CLT – MIA – LIM – CUZ – LIM – SCL – IPC – SCL – MDZ – AEP – IGR // surface travel // NOU – SYD – MEL – CNS – SYD – DFW (and yes, this has 17 segments even though only 16 is usually allowed. More on that later)

The NH C ticket is:
GRU – IST – ATH – JTR – ATH – VIE – LED – IST – SGN – NRT;HND – ITM // surface travel // PTY – MAO

The UA F ticket is:

Ultimate Award Trip 1

Bottom Line

This itinerary is definitely the trip of a lifetime. They’ll take some time off work and will circumnavigate the globe on points and miles.

I can only imagine the amount of planning beyond the award that is needed for this trip. If you have any advice for the two taking the trip, please share in the comments.

I look forward to reading more about how the award tickets were booked, where they will stay and how the trip progresses.

  1. 10 weeks? I’d be interested in knowing the total time spent in airports and airplanes vs. time at destinations.
