I've been following Altimtr, Gabriel Leigh's project for a while. Think of it as a mix of a blog, reviews and resource for frequent flyers—tools to control your traveling life, as he states.

I remember a flight attendant reassuring me that my parents couldn't be far away because there's only so far they could go inside a 747.

We all have a starting point with flying. Which trickles down later in life.

It may take a dozen hours to reach Tokyo but having landed there it feels like it should have taken a month. 

He says that better than I could ever have.
