As I’ve said before, buying plane tickets is the only form of shopping I enjoy. Why?

Simple. The thrill that occurs when I click “confirm payment” on Expedia, Kayak, Cheapoair, or any of the other thousands of airline booking portals. That single 1 second action instantly transports me to some place in the future, and sets a new string of events for my life in motion.

Less than 2 months ago, I decided to seize the opportunity to Bali for Startup Abroad. A few days later, I booked my plane ticket.

Travel is entirely about relationships – and I’m now on the other side of the planet with 8 amazing entrepreneurs building lifelong friendships and business connections. To me, that’s why travel is the only form of spending money that makes my life richer.

That’s why I love clicking “confirm payment”. How about you?
