Like that line in the movie "Apocalypse Now" where the Robert Duvall character says "I love the smell of napalm in the morning", nothing thrills me more than the smell of a new city in the morning, especially if it took me a long time to get there. In order to relive my travel experiences and fully appreciate where I had been every year, I began a couple of year ago to plot my itineraries on a world map. The map also shows me how much travel I had to do to requalify my 1K status. I just thought it would be kind of cool for folks, who come here because they also "love the smell of a new city in the morning", to share their 2011 itinerary on a world map. To get this started, I am attaching my 2011 travel map on which the red dots indicate the cities that I traveled to in 2011, some of them (e.g. Beijing) more than once. I did my best to show each itinerary with connecting lines but those are just approximate. Lastly, for the past couple of years, I have been redeeming airline miles and hotel (HHonors) points to visit several cities in Asia during the year end holiday season (Dec - Jan). The dashed green lines show the itinerary for my 2011 year end Asian escapade. I flew into (UA895) and out (UA896) of HKG, and then redeemed on *A carriers (CA, SQ) to get to Shanghai (via Beijing), Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and back, while redeeming my HHonors points to stay at these great properties: Conrad Hong Kong, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund (there on XMas Day), Conrad Millenium Singapore (there on New Year Day), DoubleTree Kuala Lumpur by Hilton, and Hilton Singapore. While all the travel was a great deal of fun, I also just had as much fun making the map of my 2011 intineraries. I think that you too would have fun making yours, and then please share it! click thumbnail to see full version.
