2014 was a good year for me, not only in travel but in general. Let’s review my travels over the past twelve months, shall we?

The most frequent non-home airport I visited was YYZ (Toronto). I didn’t do a lot of repeat business outside of ORD. Last year BNA (Nashville) and LAX were on my frequent list – I only visited each of those once this year.
I flew enough miles this year to circumnavigate the Earth only twice – or enough miles to get a quarter of the way to the moon.
How did your 2014 treat you? Did you meet all of your travel goals? What are you planning for 2015?
