    How fortunate you were to be able to visit your hometown and see it through the eyes of a tourist. I think that’s a wonderful way to connect with a place we know well and may sometimes take for granted. Also fortunate that you visited NYC! I ‘heart’ NYC :-)
    Our 2013 travel plans are not definite. We’ve talked about a few places we’d like to see for the first time (Greece, Croatia, Norway) and a few we may revisit (Amsterdam & Paris with friends, Barcelona, or anyplace in Spain). Decisions, decisions, decisions…
    All the best to you as you journey along your path to Santiago!!

    Wow you were in my neck of the woods this summer. Both my father and sister work in Stamford, CT. I live outside of Manhattan so I consider NYC my stomping grounds as well, I grew up pretty much in its backyard. And my mom works in Boston, so it’s a city I’ve been getting to know recently and I love it as well. Glad you liked my hometown(s)!

    Anyways you sure did travel a lot this year. I wish you more great travels for this year as well. :)

      How funny! I had a really great trip, and it was only my second time to the East Coast, if you can believe? Or maybe fourth…? Stamford was probably the highlight, actaully. My friend’s dad and grandpa own one of the boat stores, so we spent hours in the sound and laying on the deck of her grandparents’ house. So Americana. Happy New Year, A!

    Looks like you had quite a bit of travel the last 6 months!
    The beauty of living in Europe and having the occasional long weekend= travel is so easy!

    May 2013 be filled with many more adventures.
    Happy planning for the Camino!

    I think it’s great that you are already setting a goal to be at TBU wherever it is. While travel can often be about spontaneity, it also requires some planning! Hope that you hit all your goals in 2013 and find joy in some unexpected ones! Camino tip: invest in good shoes and socks (I was the idiot deal hunter who settled for 15 euro boots from Decathlon and suffered 50 euros for an emergency Doc visit in Ourense).

      The good botines is actually the #1 Camino tip I hear! With or without mt friend, I’m doing it! And from what I hear, TBU won’t be too far off, with a direct flight from Seville! The problem will be getting my boss to let me have an extra day off!

      Wishing you safe travels in SEA! When are you headed back?
