Faze And Luxury Travel Blog

Hello, I’m Faze! A Londoner through and through with an eternal travel bug. 
I have been obsessed with aviation for as long as I remember and travelled quite extensively through over 80 countries exceeding 2 million miles flown. Though for me its always been about quality rather than quantity.
My day job is all things Tech (yes I work full-time!) . I love my life in London but travel and flying is a passion that I escape to.

Luxury Travel Is More Accessible Than You Think

My travel habits have changed considerably over the years. By age 25, I had already travelled to over 50 countries across the 6 continents with my friends. But I had not collected a single air mile (much less use them) from any of that period! 
Couple of years of pause and reflection it dawned on me, I was missing out by not participating in loyalty programmes and the rewards they can uncover.  Soon I also started to use more helpful credit cards that actually rewarded my spend and loyalty.
A luxury travel experience can come with a hefty price tag, but it doesn’t always have to. More than anything else you need flexibility and keeping a keen eye on airlines. I am starting to appreciate the world of miles and points.  Used right, it can unlock more possibilities. I will cover these where I deem might be helpful or unique. Though perhaps by and large the points game may be already overdone within the blogging sphere?
While the credit card/rewards market in UK/EU is not as lucrative as US, it definitely should not be overlooked! However, manufacturing miles and gaming the system will not be the focus of my blog. 

Impartial & Objective Views & Reviews

I don’t make any money though this site or through any product association.
Any review and thoughts I write here are products that I have paid for myself. They are an genuine account of my actual experience and observations on those occasions. Others may have a completely different experience on the same product from time to time, as is the nature of the business. True outstanding products and service always shine through for most of us.
Please feel free to comment or ask me about anything I post, as it is too easy to assume everyone can just follow along with specific details about a product or being an Avgeek in general. I have therefore created a little terminology 101 here.
