I’ve done some crazy things related to travel over the years. Flying to Norway for a jaunt on a plane comes to mind more recently, as well as taking my daughter to Paris for the weekend on Valentine’s Day.
A tweet from The Flight Deal this morning reminded me of my next crazy trip, one I’m still quasi-regretting booking. For those folks looking to mileage run, though, it’s actually a pretty good deal, especially given the routing. I ended up booking JFK-SCL-GRU-IGU-LIM-JFK.
Just in case you haven’t memorized every airport designation, that’s leaving from New York JFK, then on to Santiago (Chile), Sao Paolo (Brazil), Iguazu, Lima (Peru) and finally back to JFK.
That’s a redeye overnight to Santiago, then a quick flight to Sao Paolo. I have a day in Sao Paolo before heading on to Iguaza to see the Falls, then on to Lima a day and a half later for another redeye back to New York. And, I do get to score another ride on the 787. All in a bit less than 4 days and for under $500. Roughly 12,000 miles flown, looks something like this:
There’s two reasons I’m bringing this up today:
1. It looks like they’re having another fare sale, as noted by The Flight Deal link above. The nice thing about the structure is that it allows (almost forces) a stopover in Santiago and Sao Paolo, along with allowing a number of days in IGU. The fare sale is for a lot of places other than this, but there are some great free stopovers on a cheap ticket if you want to spend some time here and there in South America.
2. I figured if I shared my crazy itinerary I would be more likely to actually go on the flight as opposed to chicken out, or face the ridicule of you, my reader, for being scared of 10 hours in coach on a redeye. We’ll just have to wait and see.
