By the Numbers: August 2013

Kona on the big island of Hawaii

As we head into the last official weekend of summer, I can’t tell you how glad I was to be close to home this month. Seattle is a lovely place to be in August and while I enjoyed my travels, I enjoyed my time here at home even more. As an extra treat this month, I also got to spend time with some former classmates at my 40th high school reunion.

Here’s my travel for this past month.

  • SEA/OAK/HNL/SJC/HNL/SEA – 10,596
  • SEA/KOA/SJC/SEA – 5,763
  • SEA/ANC/SEA – 2,894

Total miles flown in August:  19,253

Total hotel nights in August:  6

Year to Date

  • Miles flown 2013:  183,201
  • Hotel nights 2013:  83

There’s a lot more travel on the calendar for September, including heading to Dublin, Ireland, for TBEX.
