Welcome to my blog! I created Michael W Travels to talk about pretty much all things travel.
On the blog, I post travel news, contests, deals, mileage offers/ bonuses and trip reports & photos from my travels around the world.
I’m a special education teacher and have lived in Brooklyn, New York all my life.
I’ve traveled the world extensively and have been to 109/193 countries on 6 out of 7 continents.
I always look for the best deals and often fly with airline miles. I usually fly coach as I want my miles to get me to as many places as possible. When it comes to picking a place to stay, I prefer staying in hostels. They are usually located in prime areas and can save you a lot of money which can be better spent elsewhere on the trip.
Other interests include: working out, baseball, food (seeking out the best burgers & pizza), running and spending as much time as possible with my wife Kim & sons Lucas and Theo!
I hope that reading my blog will inspire you to get out and see the world in ways you never thought possible!
