Ten Days in Spain

I think I need to move to Spain because the whole country seems to operate on the same sleep schedule as me. Sitting out at restaurants and bars until one in the morning on a Tuesday night is how life should be.

Places I want to visit in 2011

Instead of resolutions, here's a list of places I want to visit in 2011.
The first couple are realistic and there's one that is really just wistful thinking.

New York. I've been before, but obviously there still tons to see and I have found some ridiculously cheap flights.
Despite having lived in Europe for 13 years of my life, I have never been to Paris. This is the year that changes. Hopefully this will be my first trip of the year as my friends and I have plans to go in early spring.
Do I even need to explain why I want to go to Bora Bora? Highly unlikely to happen in the near future, but it's top of my list of places I must visit eventually.

That's it! I don't think the list is too ambitious (except perhaps the last one) and is totally doable within the next year.

2010 in Pictures

As a perfectionist, I always find it hard to say that a year was good,. A year is far too long an amount of time to be able to classify it as one thing. Parts were great, parts were utter rubbish, there were bits that made me laugh, bits that made me cry, bits I'll never forget, and bits I hope I don't remember.
I will say that 2010 was a year of change. Change is something I'm quite used to, but this is the first real year it's been change I've dealt with by myself. It's the first year I've gotten to do whatever I like and really just had myself to answer to. With that in mind, I'm happy with the choices I've made in this past year.
So without further rambling, here's a summary, in pictures, of where I went this year.

There was a little bit of England
And a lot of Scotland
And of course, I can't forget the beautiful west coast. Somewhere I still consider a bit like home.

There were also two weeks spent in Spain where I didn't take a single photo. You can just guess how lazy that holiday was.

So if I had to classify traveling in 2010, it would definitely go in the "good" category. Although there were no more regular family holidays, no more getting everything paid for, and we did get stranded in airports on a few occasions, I had fun, I got to choose where I wanted to go and do and I saw a lot of wonderful places.

Hopefully 2011 will bring lots of new adventures for all of us.
Thanks for reading!
