Farewell, old friend


I guess it had to happen: coming back from a trip to Iceland, my old Burton duffle bag gave up.

I purchased it six years ago for my first team meetup, and so I thought this was a good moment to look back at some travel stats.

 Since I joined Automattic, I travelled 624,694 km to 71 cities located in 22 countries, across 83 trips that represented 540 days away from home, or 25% of my time.

I don’t know exactly how that compares to the average Automattician, but what I know for sure is that these numbers don’t even put me anywhere near the top of the Automattic travel leaderboard.

Does this sound appealing to you? Well, we are hiring! 🙂

Unfortunately no, the fabric itself is used down to paper thin in a few strategic places. The plastic back is what made this bag very solid, but it also means that there is a lot of tension where the fabric is attached to the plastic.
