Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight

Reflections on 2006 as it comes to a close

It is almost the end of the year, so I will say a Merry Christmas (or whatever other holiday you might be celebrating at this time of year) and a happy new year to all you.

Here's some images to get you in the mood.

Regular readers will note a link at the top of the entry to a map. The boys at Travellerspoint have added a mapping feature. So my future blogs (as well as my past ones, if you want to go back and read) will include maps for your education and viewing pleasure.

A short statistical analysis of my travel year. I need to keep track of my time spent out of Canada for tax purposes, and as such I can say that I spent 215 days of 365 possible (58.9%) of my time outside of Canada this year. Sadly, most of it was in less than glamorous New Jersey. I also flew a total of 42,985 miles this year.

Anyway, this entry is really boring, eh? Next week I'm off to Panama for a week, so hopefully I'll have something nicer to write about. As my last entry of the year, though, I do vow to make a New Years Resolution.

I resolve to NOT write any more about how crappy I find Newark airport. It seems like it's almost all I wrote about this year. So no more next year on Newark.

Of course, I just found out today that I could be in Atlanta next year for a spell. Have you heard the horror stories about Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta? You probably will...

Merry Christmas and have a great holiday!

ps. our calculations for your 2005/2006 work trips only comes to 56955 kms, which is about 13000 less than that other calculation (converted miles to kms).... Hopefully this is because it doesn't actually include all your flights, rather than just being a bad calculation! :)

Yes. I did not include every flight that I took back and forth from Newark to Toronto in my trips on TP here, and it also wouldn't include my flights to Japan, as they are in the separate trip.
