For many years, André Girod traveled extensively throughout the United-States, visiting EVERY state ( including Alaska and Hawaï) and going to far corners to meet with school authorities. We sent French children to nearly every state ( total 48). For this, André traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, accumulating points on his Amex!!!
In 1990, André flew 34 round trips from Chicago his US base to Perthes his French base, then five RT from New York, three RT from Miami and numerous flights within the United States. A total of close to 500 000 miles!!!
