How dare he traipse all over the globe while people are starving? After all, he must be rich to afford all of that.

Actually, what happened was he and his fiance got bumped from not one but three flights at Christmas-time. They were each reimbursed $1,800 by the airline, so they're using that money to buy the Paris/London/Iceland trip. Her parents are well off (I've heard), so they're footing the rest of the trip (hotels and meals).

Her parents should be ashamed of themselves!
