We had a wonderful year of travel. We took 21 trips, visiting 12 different countries. We added three new countries to our list; Philippines, Australia, and Timor Leste bringing the total country count to 53 for me and 54 for D. This is my year to sneak off and visit a new country without him!
Countries we visited this year: Australia (new country), Cambodia, China, Indonesia (6x), Japan, Philippines (new country)(2x), Timor Leste (new country), Thailand (4x), USA (2x), and Vietnam (2x). D also had several trips alone this year (too short for me to go): Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia (2x), New Zealand, for a grand total of 27 trips for him!
We kicked off the year by being published in Somerset Studio's beautiful magazine Artful Blogging...
And in July, we were published in our local Singapore Magazine, ExPat Living - The Travel Guide - featured with three articles!
As in previous year end reviews, we pick one photo to recap each trip to best represent our experience/memory of that county. It is not necessarily "the best" photo of the trip. If you click on the link in blue, it will take you to the full blog post.
I don't write posts on our US trips, but will share a special photo of D's mom and Dad. His father was inducted in the Virginia Wrestling Hall of Fame.
