2013 in ReviewMonday, 6 January 2014
|At the Hove Food Festival in May|
2013, eh? I never quite got the hang of saying it. I've got a feeling that no year after this point will come easy to me. They just take so looooong to say. Two thousand and fourteen? It's only one more syllable that nineteen ninety nine, but it feels infinitely longer and more annoying.
But all of this is besides the point. I got to travel to some pretty amazing places last year, and for that I am incredibly grateful. So what better time than now to sum them all up, with some pretty pictures? No better time, you cry? You're right! So, in no particular order...
This time last year, I was heading into the middle of a snowstorm in Jordan. You can see more about Aqaba, Amman, snow camels and the wonder of Petra here.
Skiing in Avoriaz
Soon after Jordan, I shot off to the resort of Avoriaz (with a brief stopover in Paris), to take to the slopes for the first time.
I didn't exactly walk the Camino, but I did see a lot of the pilgrim's region. I also sampled a good bit of the wine (ahem)
The picture says it all, doesn't it? Sigh.
Siam Park in Tenerife
I was hesitant about this gigantic water park in Tenerife, but the second I shot down my first slide, I was sold.
Summer in Leitrim
It's the city that stole my heart, and gave me the country music bug, as well as a LOT of good grub.
So that's was 2013. Who knows what the next year will bring? There's a brand new look for the blog coming soon, for one. So please keep swinging by to say hello!
Happy new year!
