I like the part of flying around the world for free. I gotta start churning. I just have to lay low for a little bit!

At the rate it's going now, air fare is going to be crazy expensive just like it was in the 20's. it's retarded. As long as gas is going up, air fare is tagging right behind it. It's insane.
