100 000 km in 480 days!

480 days traveling in 18 countries, a quite unusual and not straight route: that’s 100 000 km of flying, more than twice the circumference of Earth (40k km on Equator)! Calculated considering all stop-over on http://www.airmilescalculator.com, that’s 212 km a day!
Then, according to http://www.travelnav.com/flight-emissions/, these flights generated about 12 tonnes of CO2, i.e. ~ 118g/km, roughly similar to the emission of  a new car sold in Europe. Obviously, a car can fit more than one person, so I suppose these 100 000 km are more equivalent to 10 years of driving, these last 10 years I rarely used a car since I never owned one!
