Traveling in 2013

It was a busy year for me. As I look back at my speaking CV for 2013, here’s what I see:

What a year. I also had two trips for Red Gate in here that didn’t involve any speaking.

For the year, this gives me totals of

  • 30 events
  • 20 trips (2 non-speaking)
  • 58 talks

Wow. The busiest year by far for me. Almost 60k miles in the air, which is the most I’ve ever flown. I know some people do a lot more, but this was quite a bit for me.

The upsides of the year were meeting lots of neat people, getting to 6 or 7 new cities I’ve never seen, and not traveling in January, and only a short, business trip in August.

I don’t know what next year will bring. In the first quarter of 2014, I’ve already got 3 or 4 trips tentatively planned along with a couple local events. I suspect I may end up with more trips next year, but likely no more events or days gone from home as I aim for shorter trips whenever possible.
