I was a bit conflicted about whether I should do a 2014 “year in review” post or not. I started with the idea of doing a travel retrospective of sorts, but soon decided against that idea. Then I came up with the idea of looking at the numbers – how many miles did I fly, hotel night stays, etc. and thought that would be an interesting approach to sum of a year that was full of unexpected trips. Looking through pictures and my Instagram feed, I didn’t realize just how much you can pack into 365 days. As mentioned, I certainly didn’t expect the amount of work travel I had this year, but am truly grateful as I was able to visit new places and experience new things.
My #1 travel tip from this year? TURN ANY BUSINESS TRIP INTO A MINI BREAK.
55,000+ || number of miles flown
70 || number of nights spent in Marriott, Hyatt, Starwood and boutique hotels
12 || number of months I traveled “somewhere”
10 || number of states visited
5 || number of new cities visited
4 || number of spas visited
2 || number of airlines used [I try to stick with United, but sometimes schedules call
1 || number of countries visited [2 if you count my layover in Toronto ;-)]
Washington, DC • San Jose, CA • San Diego, CA • San Francisco, CA • Tampa, FL • Scottsdale, AZ • Toronto, CA • Frankfurt, Germany • Ramstein, Germany • Orlando, FL • Atlanta, GA • Augusta, GA • National Harbor, MD • San Antonio, TX • Philadelphia, PA • New Orleans, LA • Honolulu, HI • Big Island, HI • Several Cities, VA
