  • SEA/IAD/BRU/DUB – 6,677 miles (a round about way – more on that later – to get Dublin for a TBEX site visit)
  • DUB/SXF – 826 miles (in Berlin for a week at ITB Berlin, the world’s largest travel trade show)
  • SXF/BRU – 401 miles (back to Brussels for a few days of sightseeing before meeting up with travel blogger pal Chris Gray Faust to head to Antwerp and the start of a Vantage River Cruise (the inaugural sailing of the River Splendor).

  • SEA/HNL/SJC/LIH – 10,266 miles
  • SEA/ORD/SEA – 3,436 miles

And with that, and the last flight coming home today, I’m done with traveling for the month.
