2012: My Year of Travel

If I look back at 2012, the main theme for me was traveling - near and far.  And I loved every bit of it!

By the numbers:
  • US States visited: 9 (TX, LA, FL, MI, NV, CA, IN, PA, CO)
  • Countries visited: 11 (USA, UK, Angola, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Germany, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, UAE)
  • Flights: 37
And here is a sampling of photos:

London, United Kingdom - Big Ben & Parliament Building

Luanda, Angola - deep sea fishing

La Romana, Dominican Republic - vacation rental
London, United Kingdom - St. James's Park

Cairo, Egypt - Pyramids of Giza

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -Independence Hall
Miami, Florida - swamp tour

 Midland, Michigan - the Tridge
Rome, Italy - the Colosseum

Santorini, Greece- cliffs of Oia

 Austin, Texas - hill country weekend

Austin, Texas - UT football game
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - view from the 123rd floor of the Burj Khalifa
Lake Tahoe, California - Emerald Bay
Whew!  I'm so thankful to have gotten so much travel out of my system... something tells me next year won't be quite the same with a baby arriving :) 

Happy New Year!
