2013 Was A Year of…Travel!

About halfway through the year, I posted my travel stats as collected by TripIt. I did so because I was amused by the proportion of time I’d spent traveling versus at “home,” which is nominally Boston.

Back then, I’d spent 156 of 196 days traveling, or roughly 80% of the year on the go.

I checked again this morning, and was further amused. I have no further travel planned for 2013, which leaves me with the following:

I was gone from Boston for 302 of the 365 days in 2013. That’s about 83% of the year. In those 302 days, I traveled 130,409 miles, or 209,873 kilometers. I visited 56 cities in four countries across two continents.

2014 doesn’t look to be much different. I leave Boston this Friday, January 3, and have plans that will keep me away through at least the middle of February; I hope to extend that many months more. In 2013, I managed to leave Boston in January and not return until June, which is to say, I have a new personal record to set. 🙂

  1. 130,409 miles

    To put that in perspective, the circumference of the Earth is 24,901 miles. Your mileage would circle the globe nearly 5 and a quarter times and is more than half the way to the Moon (238,900 miles). I’m jealous and impressed 🙂

    1. Wow, I didn’t stop to calculate that. It’s a little mind boggling. Thanks!

      Perhaps my 2015 goal should be a trip to the moon. I could probably convince my team to hold a meetup there. 🙂
