2014: A Review of My Year in Travel

In 2014, I traveled more than in previous years. I easily requalified for American Airlines’ top tier Executive Platinum status and I burned a ton of miles for a European trip in 2014 and a round-the-world trip in 2015. The blog reached a new milestone — 100 posts — and my blog was featured in Million Mile Secrets’ Friday Interview Series.

As for flights, I took 145 domestic flights in 2014:

A few statistics:

  • A total 95,299 butt-in-seat miles were flown – enough miles to circumnavigate the earth 3.83 times
  • I spent 12.2 days or 291 hours in an airplane
  • I was at 27 airports in 5 countries
  • My longest flight was 3,961 miles (New York-JFK to Berlin-Tegel)
  • My shortest flight was 91 miles (Nantucket to Boston, Massachusetts)
