WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden haven’t been shy about traveling out of the country.

Mark Sullivan, the director of the U.S. Secret Service, told a Congressional panel Thursday morning that President Obama went on 31 international trips in his first year in office, a “significant increase when compared to previous administrations’ first year in office.”

He said Biden had traveled on 21 international trips his first year compared to Vice President Cheney’s one trip.

Sullivan, who appeared before a House Appropriations subcommittee to discuss the agency’s budget, also noted that threats against President Obama “are at the same level they were for the last two administrations at this point in their administrations.”

On the issue of  travel,  Wikipedia says that the first six presidents to travel internationally went by ship.

” The first four presidential trips by airplane were the four WWII conferences: Casablanca, Tehran, Yalta (FDR attended during the war), and Potsdam (Truman attended after the war). President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the first to travel by jet and the first to travel via helicopter,” the online encylopedia wrote.
