For 10 years Chris Guillebeau has been traveling the world on a mission to see all 193 United Nation Countries and he’s done it.  This guy knows more about travel hacking than any of the “guru’s” out there and he puts his money (well not really) where his mouth is. For a decades now, Chris has travel hacked his way into countries by doing both simple and complicated things to get to where he wants to go, and he’s not alone.

Many of the people celebrating with him on his birthday got there just the same way – by travel hacking.  What is this travel hacking you ask?  Well, it’s a way of getting your travel for free using several different means.  Most people don’t know about travel hacking but they actually do a version of it when they use the various points they accumulate on their credit card purchases – but travel hacking takes this to a whole new level.

This is what happens when you put a little elbow grease into the mix and start planning and conspiring to get to the best travel locations and do it for free.  If you’re interested in learning more then there’s no one better to learn from then Chris Guillebeau.
