My 2012 travel is over – I visited 15 different airports in 2012, flew ten different airlines, visited six countries, seven German Länder, and seven US States — although I did list eight on my whiteboard because I expected to stop by Florida during my New Year’s Eve trip — I never made it. There was more to do in Mobile that I expected.
For 2013 I know that I will fly through at least four new airports (barring some kind of surprise; the tickets are already booked). There are no new countries planned (as of yet), but I’m hoping to make it to at least one new one. 2014 will bring at least two….
