Oh, the Places I Browsed in 2016!

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?

  1. I always live vicariously through your posts. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

    • 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.
