2015 Travel by the Numbers
Happy New Years! Looking back on this past year, 2015 was another big year in travel. Once again, I’ve taken a look back at my 2015 travel numbers and with the help of TripIt have pulled together the stats to paint a story of my year. If you missed last years, you can see my 2014 Travel by the Numbers recap here.
So the 2015 snapshot:
Total miles flown: 104,740 miles via 62 flights flown through 34 airports on 11 different airlines visiting 7 different countries (outside of the airport). 4 of those 7 countries were net new for me, increasing my total number of countries visited to 47. Of that, I’d estimate that 70% was for business, 30% for pleasure – blurry due to a mix of both on some trips (but a slightly better balance than last year).
This was, of course, enough to once again help me achieve 1K status on United Airlines.
Total flight time (not including delays): about 253 hours… Essentially 10.5 full days of my year was spent on a plane
Hotel nights: 74
Nights sleeping on a plane: 9
Nights crashing with friends while traveling: 6
By flight count:
By distance flow:

Here’s to a great year past and an even more exciting year to come!
