A Very Good Year

The year is winding to close and WordPress itself was kind enough to give me a little kick-start by sending me the year end review.  It was cool to know that I had visitors from 96 countries stop by!  If you like fun details like that make sure to Click here to see the complete report.

Sunset on Everest, not just a 2012 highlight, but a life highlight.

On a more personal level 2012 was a year to remember.  I made it to 12 countries, but that hardly begins to communicate the excitement of the year.  How can you sum up a year spent…

Cruising the Greek Islands,

Fortunately the sunset doesn't care if you're on a fancy cruise or a cheap ferry.

A little like Ulysses

Hiking the Alps…

Crossing three countries on foot.

and the Himalayas,

Walking around the roof of the world.

Enjoying luxurious nights at the Vienna opera…

Just one of the opera houses I was lucky enough to visit.

and rainy nights in the Scottish Highlands,

Too bad it wasn’t water proof.

Working in film…

Enjoying life is my real career.

No, 2012 is a year that defies definition and having cost about $5,000 it was also a bargain – even before I count the best part: memories with friends.

Priceless

So here’s to a great 2012 and an even better 2013!  I hope you’ll all join me on the road at some point or at least drop a line.  You all are what really makes this special!
