A Big Year for Travel

I do tend to travel a good amount as my kids have gotten older. The pandemic slowed things for a year, but only then. Someone remarked on this year being a lot of trips, and it has been. Not the most ever, but the most fun ever.

I decided to look at the travel numbers for the last few years, and see how this compares. Here are my trip numbers, for both business and personal, as best as I can tell.

  • 2013- 18
  • 2014 -17
  • 2015 – 17
  • 2016 – 16
  • 2017 – 15
  • 2018 – 20
  • 2019 – 23
  • 2020 – 1 (Las Vegas for my wife’s birthday, as the pandemic was starting)
  • 2021 – 11
  • 2022 – 23

Looking at this, 2022 ties the biggest year, but it didn’t feel as bad as 2013-2105.I don’t have exact numbers, but I know I was closer to 30 trips those years and felt more burned out.

I think because we have some fantastic vacations (Bruge, Hawaii, Venice, Lisbon) plus 3 volleyball trips and 3 trips to see my daughter in college.

Hopefully 2023 will turn out to be just as big and exciting with more places that we’ll visit and enjoy.
