65 Flights in 14 Months Flew By

Boarding PassesIt’s still hard to believe that I actually took 65 flights in 14 months and traveled to 22 countries all over the world, while visiting countless destinations in each country. Each flight symbolized embarking on a new adventure and not knowing where the journey would take me when I landed. Along the way, I was able to accomplish countless bucket list items, while learning more and more about myself with each new step. In reflecting on my travels, I am in awe of the places I went, people I met, things I saw & did, and the lessons learned in the process.

Boarding PassesThroughout my 14 months of full-time travels, I flew with countless airlines including: West Jet, Porter, Air Canada, Delta, Hawaiian Airlines, Virgin Australia, Jetstar, Qantas, LAN, Thunder Airlines, and Air Transat. From flying stand-by, missing flights, getting bumped to first-class, and landing in unexpected cities, I experienced it all! Nothing would stop me! It’s in those moments when I had to be open to everything and anything traveling would bring. I’ve realized that I can be open, flexible, light-hearted, and committed to making the best in every situation. I learned that traveling made me a stronger person in so many aspects of my life. It’s this world trip that changed me. Boarding Passes

Having a boyfriend as a pilot only adds to my love of flying. I’ve always been curious about airplanes and I was sure to record some of the different aircraft models throughout my travels. My 65 flights gave me the opportunity to ride on a variety of planes such as (but not including all): dash 8-100, CRJ 900 (EV), B757-300, B757, CRJ 700 (EV), Q400 Bombardier, Air Bus 320-2, B737, B777-200, A320, Air Bus A330-300, Diamond, and King Air 100. It’s fun to be able to travel the world, while flying on the variety of aircrafts out there.Thunder Airlines Timmins

    • I think I could at this point. I enjoy some airports more than others. I definitely could comment on this subject, although I am no expert. Something to keep in mind for future reference. Thank you for the suggestion.

    • Most of that was due to the fact that I had to fly stand-by via the United States! That added a few extra flights. Not to mention how big Canada is, I often have to take a couple flights before I can leave the country! It all adds up!

  1. I cant believe you remember the types of aircraft you used! Time to compare airlines. By the way – no ‘u’ in Qantas – Queensland And Northern Territory Air Service – if you ever wondered what the letters stood for!

    • Part of that is because I have a travel journal where I still write things down on the go in the old-fashion way! The details totally fascinate me! I’m such a nerd!

      Thanks for the tip! AHHHHHH That makes sense now! I actually has no idea!

      I should write a post comparing airlines! 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion!
