Trip 5 – Europe, Transatlantic & North America

My fifth trip away was by far my longest journey, spending some 80 days travelling. There was a good balance between time on land and a cruise. With time spent in both Europe and North America before and after the cruise.

The planning for this trip got a little bit mixed up with a total of three crossings of the Atlantic Ocean. Two crossing travelling from Europe to North America by air and one the other direction by sea.

The planning for this trip got made slightly more difficult when trying to work a cruise into two existing flights. The flight from Brisbane to Europe and from America to Brisbane were booked. But I decided to fit in a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Venice. In the end, it all worked out and I had an amazing time.

The Statistics

The distance covered on this trip was 65,537km (40,722 miles). Of which 52,651km (32,715 miles) was by air and 12,886km (8,007 miles) was by sea.

There was a total of eighteen flights spending some 72 hours in the air.

I visited 20 different countries, South Korea, England, Austria, Hungary, Germany, Iceland, United States of America, Azores, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Vatican City, Greece, Croatia, France, Monaco, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands and Canada.

I spent a total of 44 nights in hotels, Seoul (1), London (1), Vienna (10), Berlin (3), Manchester (1), New York (4), Fort Lauderdale (4), Venice (1), Nice (3), Brussels (3), Copenhagen (3), Amsterdam (3), Reykjavik (3), Vancouver (3) and Los Angeles (1). Additionally, I stayed with a friend in Toronto for five nights and 29 nights onboard Holland America Line MS Nieuw Amsterdam.
