Hello there, my name is Sebastiaan! On Venturelust, I share travel hacks and guides for people who want to make more out of their travel.
I discovered my passion for airplanes and flying quite late. I was eighteen and joined my best friends for a trip to Spain in 2007. In 2011 I moved to London, and that's where it all started to kick-off. I regularly traveled back and forth to Germany and hit 60-80 flights a year, which got me my first frequent flyer status with British Airways and a glimpse of what is possible. But it took a stunning six years and a move back to Germany to realize how much potential I have let untouched.
In 2017 I moved to Frankfurt to work as a Creative for a global consulting firm. Send all my points on First Class tickets to the US and lost my British Airways status afterward. As Frankfurt is one of two Lufthansa hubs, I decided to move to Lufthansa and the Star Alliance. As I had to start from scratch - no insurances, no bank account, no credit cards - Soon I figured out that Lufthansa partnered with a lot of other programs that would allow me to ramp-up a significant amount of miles straight away and get me into a business class seat quickly.
In this blog, I want to share with you those sweet spots and hacks to get you onto the miles-game or enhance your reward potential. Please feel free to give me feedback or leave a comment if I lost you in one of my articles. I will try to answer your questions as quickly as possible, and you will be helping me to improve the quality of the site.
