Hi, I am Matt Berg and together with my wife Dhara Desai we write “The 2 Million Mile Honeymoon”. I recently left my six figure job as an engineer in New York City to follow my dream of traveling the world and writing about my experiences. I have traveled extensively in the past but almost always as a backpacker, sleeping in hostels and flying economy. I wanted to share my passion for travel with my new wife but as we get into our 30’s the idea of overnight economy flights and hostel dorm rooms doesn’t have the same appeal as it did in our early 20’s. Luckily, since we discovered miles and points a few years ago we can fly in comfort and stay at luxury properties for less than what I used to pay as a backpacker. Though, to be honest we still sometimes have a better time staying in a private room at an interesting hostel than at a stuffy 5 star hotel, but it’s nice to have the option!
I’ve used miles to get myself to China
I’ve used miles to get myself to Africa
I’ve used miles to get us to Peru
And over the next 18 months we intend to burn over two million more miles we have been saving up for our honeymoon as we travel to dozens of countries on all seven continents. We are going to do it in luxury for pennies, and best of all, we’re going to show you how you can do it too.
Matt is also the author of Beyond All Illusion: The Travel Adventure that Healed My Debilitating Illness, a memoir that will be available through Amazon.com in the spring. You can check out the book here for free up until the official release.
