What a year! 2017 started off slow but picked up fast and by the end I had checked off a few of the most incredible places on our planet. Starting off on one of three trips to Barcelona, I had the privilege to experience Spain's famous Easter Week, Semana Santa, as I traveled through the Southern region of Andalusia. After that I went back to Amsterdam for a short time as I was headed to Dubrovnik, Croatia for the first time. May came faster than I was expecting and I spent the early summer with friends and family in Washington D.C. and Seattle. Then I was on my way back to Mexico. This year I started off in my favourite City, Guadalajara, and then went to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende. Then a short trip to Puebla before finishing off in Mexico City. August came and I took some time to gear up for the big finale as I left for New Zealand in October. I have been wanting to see Milford Sound for many years and it did not disappoint! Just as I had thought things would quiet down I had one last little trip to Naples, Italy to take care of. No year is really complete without a trip to Italy. In all it was a great year and I am so happy to have been able to do what I did, and go where I went, and as always, the best is to be able to share with my friends and family. I have high hopes and big plans for 2018 and I wish everybody a happy and exciting New Year! Love to all!
