I’m Sam, the founder of MyTravelNerd. Here I am riding a giant duck in a hotel bathroom.

This all began because my friends were traveling like morons. I noticed that they were buying expensive plane tickets, failing to make the most of their frequent flyer miles, and using shitty credit cards. So I started sending them an email with flight deals and frequent flyer advice in a desperate attempt to get them to travel smarter.

My friends liked it, so I decided to make it a thing. I quit my job and started MyTravelNerd.

Hopefully you’re reading this because you’re a happy subscriber. But if there’s anything you wish MyTravelNerd did that it doesn’t do or anything you wish it didn’t that it does, you should send an email to nerd@mytravelnerd.com and let me know.
