To create a world of happier travelers. — Charles McCool’s mission
Charles McCool shows travelers how to increase travel happiness and reduce stress on every trip. For over twenty years, I have analyzed trip planning methods and strategies, and, in turn, help create Happy Travelers through my articles, book, classes, and talks. My travels have taken me to all 50 states in the USA, to several dozen countries, and to five continents. In fact, I once traveled to four continents without paying a dime—read about it in 4 Continent Free Flight Adventure. Perhaps that helped me appear in the World’s Smartest Traveler series.
