The engineer in me loves numbers and numerical data. I am sometimes obsessive in how I keep track of my daily life, and this time of year, I usually analyze whatever data I’ve accumulated over the past 12 months.
This year was fairly travel heavy for me, and I traveled far more than I usually do, so I thought it would be fun to analyze my trips.
So here are my travel statistics for 2014:
