I just did the math on my 2010 travel year. In 2010 I flew 318,937 “butt-in-seat” miles and 246 segments (that’s between award and revenue tickets). I’ve spent 102 nights in hotels, split mostly between Hyatt and Priority Club properties.
Unbelievable. While miles, points, and travel are no doubt a full time obsession, it really doesn’t feel like I’ve been on the road that much…
Here’s to hoping 2011 is a bit more reasonable. Then again I don’t think I’m qualified to define “reasonable.”
How did everyone else do (I’m in no way saying that bigger is better here… I’m sure many are happy to have spent more time at home this year)?
To quote one of my favorite people, Richard Quest, “wherever your travels take you [in 2011], may they be profitable!”
And on a slightly related note, today I booked what I consider to be one of the coolest (and simplest) award tickets ever, for me at least. I’ll be traveling in March on an airline I never thought I’d be able to try (and visiting a country I never thought I’d get around to), so stay tuned!
