The Adventures of Ronnie & Dr. Sheba
Ronnie and Sheba met in the Summer of 2007 at a Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. event in New Jersey. They were introduced by a mutual friend, and began dating soon after. They both loved to travel. From a young age, Ronnie loved traveling to new places. His father was in the military, which allowed his family to visit and live in various places, including Germany, Texas and Washington State. Sheba’s first time traveling abroad was during undergrad, where she visited the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Switzerland learning about their different healthcare systems. This combined her passion of travel and health, and she knew she wanted to build a life, and career, focusing on these two industries.
Within their first year together, they traveled to Canada, Miami, South Carolina, Key West and the Bahamas. This was only the beginning. Road To 100 Countries started as a personal travel goal for Ronnie and Sheba. They had traveled quite a bit over the next 6 years, but realized they were visiting the same countries mainly around the Caribbean (Bahamas, Aruba, St. Maarten, Mexico, St. Thomas, etc.). This is fine, if you love a certain destination, but they had another goal in mind. A goal to travel the world, experience new places and cultures and learn about the history of different places. With this in mind, they decided to stop repeating countries, and only visit new destinations. With 195 countries recognized by the UN, they decided they wanted to, at first, visit half of the world. Right there, Ronnie said, “we should visit 100 countries.” And Sheba agreed. At that point, in 2013, they had only visited about 13 countries together. As the years passed and they began to fill up their passports, they received a lot of questions about their journey. How do you pay for your travels? Do you work full time? Are you starting a blog? How do you decide where to go? Where are you going to next? Most people wanted to know how they funded their travels.
Throughout the years, Ronnie and Sheba learned about earning hotel points and airline miles, and then created a system of their own to significantly reduce the cost of their travels. There are so many loop holes and ways one can travel at a fraction of the cost, if a person just changes their travel mindset. Even when it comes to taking days off from work, one has to think outside the box when taking vacation days if the goal is to travel more. The Tricks To Travel System ® allowed them to travel for a fraction of the cost. Ronnie and Sheba have not paid for a hotel/ resort in the past three years, and have paid only about 40% of their flights using their Tricks to Travel system. The years flew by, Ronnie and Sheba got engaged, married in Bermuda, moved to Maryland, bought a house and started new jobs, worked 40+ hours a week. By September 2018, they visited their 100th country, Mauritius. But the journey continues! They started Road To 100 Countries ® to not just document their journey, but to show and teach others how they did it, so you can do it too! Together, we can see the world! Each one, teach one.
Road to 100 Countries- travel more, spend less.
