Maybe that included connecting/stop-over flights. I'm thinking George Clooney's "Up in the air".

"American Airlines flies to 95 domestic destinations and 95 international destinations" (per Wiki, though of course it could be different during the time he flew). That equates to visiting each destination 52 times. Would kinda get boring?

Interline? Or, if he did it for work, first class would've beaten commuting on a train or driving.

Jimi Hendrix was a paratrooper. BBC4 music docs are great.

During his lifetime Van Gogh was never famous as a painter and struggled to make a living as an artist. The Red Vineyard was the only paining he sold during his lifetime. It sold in Brussels for 400 Francs only a few months before his death.
