WELCOME TO THE YOUNG GLOBALER

A Travel Strategies Blog; Created by two 17-year-olds...

Indeed, travel is expensive - but it really doesn't have to be! 

We are on a quest to make the journey across the world comfortable and affordable for everyone. The Young Globaler serves as a vessel to project our geeky passion - the passion for aviation, traveling, and strategies. We are just two 17-year old "gamers" who want to share our journeys and takeaways from the highly strategic (which many don't realize) points & miles game. So, sit back, scroll through reviews and "tricks" - hopefully, it will offer you some useful tips and insights for your personal travel planning!
