(CNN) — As her blue and white jet emblazoned with “United States of America” touched down in Riga, the capital of Latvia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made some diplomatic history: visiting her 100th country as America’s top diplomat. The record for any other secretary up to that point was 96.

As her plane rolled down the tarmac and a flight attendant announced the milestone, her flight-weary staff applauded.

The peripatetic Clinton has only increased her travel during her time in office, making 70 trips, completing 337 days on the road and the equivalent of more than 73 days on the plane, equaling over 1,750 hours, according to her State Department staff. Dressed in a jaunty navy suit with white piping, Clinton seemed unfazed by the mileage as she shook hands with Latvian President Andris Berzins at Riga Castle.

“I wanted to save a very consequential number for Latvia!” she said proudly, beginning a day that would take her to three countries in less than 24 hours: Finland, Latvia and Russia.
