Signs that you're traveling too much....

You attempt to log into your German railways account with your Austrian railway account details.

Also...

Your colleagues are shocked when you have a week off and don't go anywhere

You run into some friends more often in first class airport lounges than on the ground.

TSA staff recognize you and say "You again!"...and I am not talking about the ones at your home base airport!

When the airline lounge receptionist greets you as follows "welcome back Mr Leavitt, our wifi code hasn't changed, and I've added you to the list for the next available shower, and your outbound is on time"

When the majority of the time you're on a flight where you've dated at least one of the FA's

That might be a different meaning of the term "Frequent Flyer".

Enviable, perhaps. : )

Perhaps, until a current and former are working the same flight and you're on it 😨

As long as they're not both current.

Alternately, when you travel a lot, and for the majority of cases when crossing an international border, you don't see one because of trusted traveller programmes (NEXUS/GE, eIACS, SES, HKID, German easypass, etc.)

When the security people notice that I'm taking a flight that is one hour later than my regular flight.

When the Starbucks girls have my coffee ready and waiting before I even get to the counter. ^

When you wake up in your own apartment, and first thought is "wait, where did all the hostel beds go? What city am I in? When is my flig- oh yeah, I'm back in America..."

I was in the library today and saw a book entitled "We Want Miles," and my first thought was "of course we do; I'm earning a lot fewer now that DL bases RDMs on ticket price..." It took a second before I realized that it was a book about Miles Davis, and the title refers to one of his albums.

While driving, you panic for a split second, wondering if you're on the correct side of the road.

You hear noise in your apartment block at 4am and reach for the bedside phone to call reception. Then you realise you're actually at home.

You sleep-talk in a foreign language.

You actually speak to someone in the wrong language, in a real life situation.

You scan the departures board, thinking "Where the devil is it I'm going, again?"

I admit to having done all of the above.

Add to this:

All your pens are emblazoned with the names of hotels.

Customs officials ask why you're carrying 14 different currencies.

You sleep late at home, then wake up thinking you've missed breakfast.
