World Trip 2012-13: Flight Journal 

Back in 2012 I undertook an amazing trip which saw my on 24 flights with 10 airlines across 17 legs which was 76,155 km in the air or 114 hours 45 minutes  I visited 19 countries over 139 days.  Countries (in order): Singapore; Malaysia; Thailand; Germany; England; Spain; Iceland; Chile; Argentina; Antarctica; USA; Mexico; Cuba; Belize; Guatemala; Honduras; Nicaragua; Costa Rica; and Panama.

Nine of these flights were part of a round the world award with Oneworld Alliance costing me 280,000 QANTAS points (highlighted with + below).  Other flights were combination of cheap paid flights and award flights.

Looking back it’s hard to believe I put all this together, combination of lots of different flights, tours and countries.  I should become a Travel Agent!
