This travel hacker paid $400 for a $52,000 round-the-world trip — here’s how he did it

Daniel Gillaspia is an attorney based in Houston, but in his spare time he’s a travel hacker. He has seen the globe and experienced some of the world’s best first-class cabins and five-star hotels.

His most recent vacation was a $52,294 round-the-world trip that took him to Tokyo; Cape Town, South Africa; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and other far-off destinations.
