2008: My year in travel

This evening I decided to work out roughly how far I've travelled during 2008. Not including walking and occasional car journeys that I've not remembered, it turns out that I've travelled a total of 21126 km (13127 miles). That is quite a long way and is almost equivalent to a complete circumnavigation of Mars! Below is an illustration of my journeys broken down by form of transport.

Looking at the breakdown, I'm pretty ashamed by the total distance that I've travelled by plane even if I have always attempted to use other forms of transport where possible. I wonder if I'll travel less during 2009.
