Our Top Travel Experiences for 2016 Told Through Instagram and Measured by Miles Walked

Top of the Rock at Rwakobo Rock in Uganda
2016 was another great year for our travels and for wearing out the soles of my shoes! I've made a habit each year of recapping the trips we've taken and the distances we've walked (see past installments:  20092010201120122013, 2014, 2015).  I present to you, dear readers, my travel blogging stats for 2016!
In total, I walked over 2000 miles as measured by Google Fit and using a 3 feet per step conversion factor to turn steps into miles. This is down a bit from 2015 likely due to the increased number of road trips that we took in 2016 (Sicily, Sligo and Dingle in Ireland, Florida, a safari in Uganda) plus more business travel to the US where cars are king.

I also became obsessed with Instagram in 2016. While I'm often several weeks behind with my blog posts (with so much travel for business and pleasure it can be hard to keep up!), I use Instagram to show off our travels and everyday life in Dublin on a daily basis. Follow @drj_sidewalksafari on Instagram for up to the minute coverage of where we are.
