Flight Paths

Today, just for fun, I sat down and listed all the flights that I took during the three years that I lived in Al Ain: 49 flights in 19 trips (involving 18 airports). Since it almost always took three flights to get from the Emirates to home (and then three back), they added up quickly.

Then I got curious as to how many miles were involved. So I put all 49 of those flights into the Great Circle Mapper: 115,000 miles (or 184,000 kms). The great thing about that site is that it not only displays the distance but a map of the routes that you enter. So the flight paths of all the flights that I took look like this:
