Here’s the dealio.  I started a new blog and wrote a book.

From now on, I will be putting all new posts on my new blog with more fun, more crazy and well… just more.

Do you want to learn how you can score a free flight to Europe, Asia or any destination of your dreams, stay in five-star hotels for free? That’s exactly what my book and website are all about, plus new articles on how to travel better and cool stuff to do and see all over the world.

Please check out my new site, new posts and book at:

See you there!

LAX Bound

After a long trip that took me to Thailand, Singapore and Australia, I’m holed up in my secret hideaway working on a big project. Why am I telling you this? Well, because I won’t be blogging for some time. The blog will be back better than ever next year, but for now, I simply need to put all my energy and focus into this big (travel) project. I can’t say more at the moment.

Until then, if you’re new to the site and just want to look around, there are over 60 articles for you to peruse.

Here’s a quick guide with some links:

I have a series of articles about Frequent Flyer programs, earning FF miles and quickly getting elite airline status.

My favorite country is Japan. Here’s what I have to say about that.

Planning your next trip? Here are some creative travel ideas.

Feel free to explore at your leisure!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy travels,


I’ve recently made some changes around here and I certainly hope you like them. Some of the changes have been gradual and some just happened this morning. Regardless, here’s the quick tour:

Obviously, the whole format looks a bit different and is intended to load faster and create a much more pleasant reading experience.

Then there’s the new Facebook section where you can “like” Travel or Die. If you’ve enjoyed the articles here please scroll down and look on the right and “like” the website. This site runs on passion and when someone tells me they dig it, either in person or via the interwebs, I really appreciate it.

Also, there’s a spiffy new most popular posts plug-in that will show you, well, what people have been reading the most. I hope that helps new people find important stuff faster.

My good friend, webmaster and resistance flexibility trainer Luther Cowden was instrumental in making it all happen. Thank you, Luther!

There will be a few more new additions soon as well. I won’t ruin the surprise by talking about them now, but you can look forward to some more changes.

Thanks everyone, for reading and contributing thoughtful comments.

Happy Travels,


Hi, I’m Algis


I have an insatiable wanderlust which takes me to some crazy places where I try strange foods, pretend I'm a local and talk with elephants. Keep reading...
