Featured: Akaroa, New Zealand – 16 July 2012.
I am a Million Miler with American Airlines with an accumulated total of over 1.2 million air-miles flown. Many miles of travel have gotten me thinking about all the places where I’ve had the great fortune of living and visiting. During my year-long ’round-the-world’ (RTW) in 2012, my frequent-flyer standing allowed me to get affordable convenient flights within the U.S. and to use business-class lounges with Oneworld partner airlines elsewhere.
I visited these places for the first time: San Miguel de Allende in México; Nassau in the Bahamas; Mekong River Delta in Vietnam; Singapore; New Zealand’s South Island; Adelaide, Canberra, and Perth in Australia; Cape Town in South Africa; Edinburgh in Scotland; and Cuxhaven in Germany. I’ve yet to return to these locations, but the following visuals remind me why I want to go back.
