2019 Travel Year in Review

Once again it’s time to look back and see where I traveled in the past year.

Cyan: Ski trip to Big Sky (Bozeman), Montana, Pink: Ski trip to Park City (Salt Lake City), Utah, Green: Business Trip to Copenhagen, Red: Business Trip to Vienna (49,830 miles)

I was able to do two ski trips this year and they were to two of my favorite places: Big Sky, Montana and Park City, Utah. In Big Sky I arrived a day before the group so I spent the night at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bozeman. Up on the mountain we stayed at The Huntley Lodge for the first time in about 20 years.  For the Park City trip I again arrived a night early and stayed at the Spring Hill Suites SLC Airport for one night and then at the Park Station Condos for the week.

After the last ski trip in February it was a long wait until I flew again. Then I had two trips in August. The first was to Copenhagen where I flew SAS Business Class and stayed at the AC Bella Sky Marriott. The second was to Vienna where I flew LOT Polish Business Class and stayed at the Hilton Vienna am Stadtpark with a stop-off at the Hyatt Place Chicago O’Hare Airport on the way home.

Outbound: Memphis-Phoenix-Sydney-Auckland, Intra-NZ: Auckland-Christchurch-Queenstown-Auckland, To Australia: Auckland-Sydney-Maroochydore, Return: Brisbane-Los Angeles-Chicago-Memphis

My big vacation this year was to New Zealand and Australia. I’m still working on the trip report but we flew Qantas business class from San Francisco to Sydney to Auckland on the outbound and from Brisbane to Los Angeles on the way back. (23,252 miles)

All told that’s over 73,000 miles of flying for me which is by far the most miles I’ve ever flown in a year.

I’ve got two ski trips on the books for 2020 and we’re looking to Hawaii for our fall vacation so I won’t fly as many miles this year but that’s ok. The most important thing is the new experiences and the great times I’ll have.

What are your travel plans for 2020?
