As 2019 begins, I took a few minutes to look back and see how my travels for 2018 looked. As much as it felt like I was traveling a great deal, my actual number of flights was not much higher than last year and I flew fewer miles by far.
- 2018: 54 flights flown – 76,263 miles
- 2017: 52 flights flown – 94,240 miles
- 2016: 59 flights flown – 92,234 miles
I had many more short flights to nearby destinations such as Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong and fewer long-distance flights: only one Europe trip this past year and no trips to Australia and New Zealand.
My best flight experience last year included the free, unexpected upgrade on EVA Air from Toronto to Taipei. They moved Tawn and me from Premium Economy to Business Class and for such a long flight, it was greatly appreciated.
Who knows what this year has in store. As much as I love to travel, it would be okay if the number of flights didn’t increase!
