By the Numbers: April 2013 Travel



April’s travel plans were sidelined a bit by a nasty little allergy attack. I’m a chronic allergy sufferer, and although I usually manage to keep my sinuses clear and my ears unblocked, I know better than to fly when I can’t do it. Pain or a blown eardrum just aren’t worth it.

So here’s where I did go this month:

  • SEA/SAN/BOS/SAN/SEA – 7,183 miles
  • SEA/ORD/SEA – 3,436 miles
  • SEA/HNL – 2,680 miles (Headed off to Honolulu to speak at Travel Weekly’s Hawaii Leadership Forum at the Royal Hawaiian Resort)

Total miles flown in April:  13,299

Total hotel nights in April:  5


  • Miles flown 2013:  89,221
  • Hotel nights 2013:  44
