Milestones

Well, I think it's official - "The Streak" is ending as of November 2011, month #40 of continuous travel. A nice round number to end on, I think. The rules were simple - just travel somewhere by plane at least once a month. This continued for a very long time, 3 and 1/3 years. It was a great run but between school and work, I won't be getting away until January 2012, I know, it's just around the corner. It's only frustrating because I have a free ticket to travel but not the time to go. That isn't to say that you should stop reading, I will undoubtedly still be exploring my own city and surrounding areas and finding travel tid-bits to share but all good things must come to an end, and then start over!
