No Fly December

November 17, 2009

No shower reviews for a while because I have officially entered “no fly December.”  I also do “no fly July” which has a much better alliterative name.

As it turns out, my flight back from Amsterdam may be the last airplane ride of 2009!  Hot damn.  According to United, I traveled 139,989 miles in 2009.   Youch.  Five trips to Europe is pretty many for one year.

I’ve been tracking my trips since 1997.  This year I did 33 trips.

Here is a little tripometer with data from the last few years going back to 2001.  You can see how travel correlates with the talks I give (a subset of which are keynotes at major conferences).

Obviously, next year there should be plenty of fodder for the noplasticshowers blog.  Stay tuned!

    Some stats you could be adding here:
    – room change requests in a year
    – # times unwanted nextdoor room noises (like the one time with the hooter girl nextdoor)
    – …

    I like it. There is a large problem with Hooters girls showing up in Europe these days and making too much noise.
