It’s long been my goal to circumnavigate my birth planet. In February 2019 I finally achieved this.
On 8 January I departed Las Vegas and flew from KLAS-KDTW, depositing me in Detroit.
On 13 January I did KDTW-BIKF-EDDB, finding myself home, albeit only momentarily, in Berlin. ❆
Six days later, EDDT-EFHK. After landing in Helsinki, I ate a reindeer!
21 January, EFHK-RJAA. Tokyo may perhaps be my favorite city in the world. What was intended to be a weeklong trip turned into three (including a slight diversion into Disneyland).
Finally, a RJAA-KLAX-KLAS on 15 February (including a brief jaunt into Saturday the 16th, only to return to Friday upon crossing the international date line heading east) returned me to the origin of this trip. Longest Friday ever!
