New Year’s is always a time of reflection for many of us. I stopped to think about all the things I did and saw over the year. And how many very different places I experienced this year. On January 1, 2016, I hadn’t had a clue what 2016 would bring.
So many trips:
Brussels – February
Arizona/Grand Canyon/Sedona -March
Minneapolis – May
Amish Country – August
Torch Lake, Michigan – August
Brussels – September
Budapest – September
Treasure Island, FL – October
Las Vegas – October
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – November
Brussels – December
Norway – December
It was a challenging year in many ways, but also a year of exploration. I tried so many new things: kayaking in Michigan, thermal baths, riding a camel in Mexico, hiking in the Grand Canyon, riding a helicopter over Hoover Dam, and sitting down with Amish hosts for dinner. But my favorite adventure of all is one I’ll write about soon: dog sledding in Norway.
What are your favorite memories of 2016?
Just popping over to wish you many more adventures in the coming year, Juliann and a joyous, laughter-filled 2017. xxx Ailsa
I wish the same for you! Happy New Year and Happy Travels!
You’ve been busy! I hope 2017 is a great year for you too. 🙂
Thanks so much!
So many trips and so many delightful posts! Happy travels to you in 2017!
Thank you! Hope your 2017 is wonderful, too!
I always live vicariously through your posts. 🙂 My favorite memory of 2016 is probably going to Hawaii for my friend’s wedding and seeing all my classmates that I hadn’t seen since we all left London. Hope you have many more adventures in 2017!
That sounds wonderful. I still haven’t been to Hawaii, but enjoyed reading about it through your posts. Happ new year!
So glad you got back into the blogging saddle again after going through some tough stuff, honey. Always love your travel posts! xo
Awwww. Thanks, Britt. It’s nice to be back to myself again. 🙂
I have many amazing memories of the previous, as well as this year! Do you have any tips for visiting Norway?
I found Oslo very easy to explore by foot, train, or bus. Once you arrive at the airport, a train into Oslo is much cheaper than the $80+ taxi. I took the train back to the airport. There are also bus excursions that go farther north in Norway.
I highly recommend the Beito Husky dog sledding experience. It was one of the highlights of my life!
The only other tip I can offer is that food and beverages are more expensive there than in other European cities. At least, in my experience.
