Ben Schlappig is a 25-year-old travel blogger.
And he’s homeless, because he spends most of his time in the sky, flying first class — for free.
He says anybody could get free first-class tickets, if you play it smart.
“It sounds cliché, but I'm living my dream,” Schlappig told Business Insider.
We spoke to Schlappig to hear his story:
Schlappig is a popular travel blogger. His blog, called “One Mile at a Time,” has over 34,000 Twitter followers and 55,000 Instagram followers.
Traveling is more than a hobby for Schlappig — it’s a near obsession. “Since a young age, all I ever wanted to do was to fly and travel,” he tells us.
That obsession has turned into a real job. He makes a living primarily through his blog and a travel-consulting business he runs. This is his swimsuit.
