2022 Year in Miles

2022 Year in Miles

Great Circle Mapper http://www.gcmap.com

2022 was the year of “revenge travel” after 2+ years of Covid shutdowns.  Warnings of a system not ready for the pre-pandemic levels of travel came to fruition for some.  My international summer travel ended up reasonably successful and without too much chaos.  I was able to visit eight new countries and try out seven new airlines.

My overall miles flown was down (and a fraction of totals from before Covid which left me at the bottom tier of elite status on Alaska Airlines), yet I still managed to spend about 20% of my year in hotels (and hang on to Hyatt Globalist status).   I may not ever reach my pre-pandemic levels of mileage flown due to a career change; instead I imagine I will take one or two longer trips each year rather than many shorter international trips.

Here is a look back at my 2022 travel in numbers.
