Sharing my travels around the World it’s a wonderful feeling but when you meet alike minded people who share the same passion as you for traveling and exploring new destinations, it is always a pleasure. At TravelsByJC we are open for new perspectives and fresh adventures to share with you all, the reader. Throughout my recent travels in 2015 I met Robert Dotson, a fellow traveler who shares the same passion as me. Robert and myself hit it off right away when we met aboard American Airlines 777-300ER while flying from Hong Kong to Dallas International Airport. I could sense Roberts passion towards traveling right away. We both share a lot of great things in common and one of them it’s promoting positivity and the will of inspiring others to travel and encouraging them to step away from their comfort zone. What better than bringing aboard a great friend to share his journeys with others and give you all a new perspective in travel along with some destination advice. So without further a due, lets introduce TravelsByJC Guest Blogger.
WHO IS ROBERT DOTSON?
Robert Dotson defines today’s savvy self-directed traveler and he has a passion for sharing tips that maximize experiences while minimizing costs. He did not enter the long-haul international travel market until his mid 30s, but has impressively averaged seeing a new country every 90 days since! He has visited every state in America and more than 60 foreign counties. In 2015 alone, he is scheduled in 20 countries, with flights on 10 of the OneWorld alliance carriers. He is an Executive Platinum with American Airlines and has earned well north of 5 million miles in the AAdvantage program, while flying 14 of the 15 current alliance carriers, and he is also an SPG Platinum. His primary interests are people, architecture, culture, museums, parks, and luxury hotels. He treats loyalty points as currency and always cross-shops the currencies for best values. He is also a believer in following monetary currencies and traveling into depressed currency markets to maximize value. In addition to his personal vault of knowledge, he relies on his Virtuoso travel advisors and itasoftware.com to enhance the return on his travel investment. I believe you will enjoy the blend of enthusiasm, experiences, and expertise he brings.
