Total miles burned of various currencies (airline only)- 733,384
Hotel points- 695,745 (which doesn't really make any sense because some were SPG and some Marriott but lets just go with it).

Notable Premium:
JFK-TLV on DL J
FCO-JFK on DL J

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

No, but all you have to do is ask.

It was booked as JFK-TLV//FCO-JFK. Came out to 140k MR ea with 50% rebate on BP.
Then booked TLV-FCO(-ATH) as a HC on AZ in fake J (blocked middle seat) for around 20k ea also with MR BP.
Took a while to figure that one out.

Took my son for his Bar Mitzvah. Amazing trip.


no .blogspot for you?
Nope. I was a latecomer.

All in J except flights to BKK and VCE
Unless you returned by ship, you're missing a leg there (Following TLV-LAX).

The red is all in Y
The blue and yellow are in my dreams.

In principle, doesn't look very different than my map (different cities but same idea), though other than 1 segment all international travel was in J.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In principle, mine is also no different to everyone else's on here, just different cities and classes.
