Welcome, 2013!

Greetings Dear Readers, and Happy 2013!

2012 was an outstanding year, and it’s been a great pleasure sharing our journeys with you and virtually traveling along on yours as well. Thank you for your insight and support!

It’s been my tradition for several years to send out an end-of-year travelogue to my friends and family. Since I count many of you as special friends, I wanted to share our greetings here as well. If you click on the image below, you’ll come to a .pdf file with many of our globetrotting happenings. Brace yourself —  it was a jam-packed year for us! We have been very lucky to have had the experiences we’ve had and to have brushed shoulders with fantastic friends, old and new.

Many of you have likely made resolutions. I didn’t craft a traditional one this year, however, I’m now quite inspired to do so throughout the year, as a result of this wise quote from French-Cuban author, Anaïs Nin:

“I made no resolutions for the New Year.  The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.”

Wherever you are in the world, I wish you a splendid 2013, and again, I say thank you for a fantastic year.

All the best,

Trish
