2018 was my first complete calendar year as a full-time freelancer, and, as expected, it has been my most productive one. I flew 99,501 miles (160,131 km), or 4X around the globe! Sorry, Earth. My carbon footprint skyrocketed, unfortunately, but at the same time the planes would’ve flown regardless of my taking up one of the seats. In the future, I plan to make more land border crossings to eliminate some of my poor impact on the planet.
I managed to visit 13 countries, eight of which for the first time. I went to the Caribbean, to South America (for the first time), to Asia (twice), to Europe (twice) and to Australia (also for the first time). As it was a year of repeats, I hope to visit more new countries in 2019.
So, let’s recap some of the places I visited in 2018. Here we go!
2019 travels start in just a couple of short weeks!
