Here’s to the greekophiles

Here’s to the greekophiles… was on my annual trip to Mythos country a few days ago. But this time not alone! Missed WRC and dust a bit. Anyway – back into the summer!
Some personal statistics: 
1st ever non business flight with an already known sleeping place.
1st flight to Greece with having a toilet available during the stay!
My first flight was operated by a 737 classic, her’s was a 737 too. (yay, old enough to have been witnessed a 737 classic operated flight)

2012 Travel Review

Before continuing with more shots from southern California I just would take the opportunity to wrap up my 2012 travel experience. According to my Flightdiary I spend 3.5 days aboard airplanes in 2012. Only 2 flights more than the year before but with 6 longhaul flights and more than 40k miles I have earned the Frequent Traveller status from Lufthansa. I think I will not take any benefit from this as the express lines are unuseful when having a 2.5 hours trip to get to the airport. You have to calculate with extra time so you will always have enough time at the airport. But I really like the package I got from Lufthansa. On the last flights with them I had the feeling that as an Economy passenger you have to be grateful to be allowed to join this flight.
The silver card comes in a clean white box together with personal luggage badges and a stylisch paper clip. Nothing special but I really like the minimalistic and clean look of the package.

Allthough I’m employed directly in California now, I don’t believe to spend a similar amount of time aboard airplanes in 2013.
