Isn't it pretty clear in the profile who your birthday is shared with? I don't know if the UI has changed, though.

Since I don't have more travel planned and intend to stay the last few days of the year in Seattle, I think now would be a good time for a followup post to last year's travel summary.

Here's the break down of days spent in each city.

292 Seattle
13 London
9 Singapore
7 NYC
7 Tulsa
5 Chicago
4 Austin
3 Mountain View
3 Anaheim
3 Phoenix
3 Las Vegas
2 Vancouver
2 Airplane
2 Cardiff, Wales
2 Hartford, CT
1 San Antonio
1 Reno
1 Squaw Valley, Tahoe
1 San Francisco
1 Kennewick, WA
1 Warwick, RI
1 Boston
1 Coulee Dam, WA
1 Dallas

I spent only one day less in Seattle in 2012 than I did in 2011, but I went to a bunch more cities (however I got an extra day because of the leap year). I separated out the cities in the Bay Area this time because the south bay is substantially different than SF. Conversely, I grouped my stay in Phoenix together even though I was technically in two cities.

Not represented in this data is that some cities I visited more than once. I made two two-day trips to Austin and two one-day trips to Vancouver.

The longest stretch I stayed in Seattle was 52 days. However, I think that stat is a little unfair because I took a road trip to Coulee Dam, WA where I stayed one night before coming back to Seattle for another 48 days. So that makes a 101 day stretch in Washington.

I flew 58,611 miles. I've attached a link to the segment I flew.
