### I'd travel around the world for a residency

Turns out that this is almost literally true. In an idle moment I looked at how many miles I racked up going to residency interviews and came up with the following interesting statistics:

Circumference of the Earth: 24,900 miles

Total miles traveled for residency interviews: 23,089

Ratio of miles traveled to circumference of the Earth: 0.927

In other words, looking for a medical training position I traveled the equivalent of over 90% of the distance around the Earth at the equator. For the truly detail-obsessed, here's the breakdown by mode of transport:

Miles by air: 20,648

Miles by car: 2,052

Miles by rail: 389

And the total costs of all of this? I'm trying not to think about it.

You really should check on your carbon footprint!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles, eh? True, you've stamped a nasty carbon footprint in absolute terms but it's in a great cause.

You have an idle moment?! God forbid. Pack the camel and head to CA!

We follow all your adventures with great interest.

This is really something you do not think about, but when you make the sum of all this , indeed, you do not want to know how much all this travel costs !!

Greetings from Belgium !
