I went into a lot more detail with my own 2015 Year in Review, but TPG Editor-in-Chief Zach Honig decided to share some quick year-end stats of his own, provided by flight-tracking site Jet Lovers.

You may not have heard of Jet Lovers, but I’m a big fan — the web-based tool automatically tracks your flight stats, keeping tabs on your travels throughout the year. If you like to tally up your annual travels, Jet Lovers saves a lot of time. I simply check in on Foursquare (or Swarm) after I land, and the tool automatically logs the flight. While that might seem like a hassle, Swarm also makes it easy for me to tell friends and family members when I’ve arrived safely at my destination, eliminating the need to send individual text messages after landing.

If you don’t track your flights, the next best thing is estimating based on the number of elite-qualifying miles you earned, though if you often book premium fares, that figure could be far higher than what you’ve actually flown. Award flights (such as SYD-AUH in Etihad’s A380 Apartment) also throw a wrench in the works — you don’t earn miles for those flights, so you won’t find any record of travel in your airline statements.

Jet Lovers tracks them all, though. I simply check in on Swarm once I touch down, often using my Google Project Fi phone (since international data is basically free), and the flight is instantly logged. You also get some other pretty cool stats, including the total number of miles you’ve flown since joining, along with your total number of airports, countries and flights.

What are your Jet Lovers stats for 2015?
