Map of all the flights I took in 2016

I took 82 flights this year, for a total of 221,494 km (137,000 miles), and I've just mapped them. That's more than 5 times the circumference of the earth. Routes flown once are more blue, and the routes flown more often are more red.


That's more flights and more km than in 2015, when I flew 54 times for 186,056 km. A map of 2015 flights is here. It's been another extraordinary year for studying grass around the world.
