One of my greatest interests in life is to travel, experience, and learn more about other cultures. There’s nothing like soaking up all that a new country has to offer. I feel immensely thankful that my career allows us to travel extensively (always wish it could be more but don’t want to be greedy).
2009 was a year of drastic, yet positive changes with our move from Indonesia to Philippines. Change is what defined this year.
2010 should be more stable, but still allow plenty of travel – perhaps even more if we return to the States for 8 weeks this summer (tentatively planning a trip to the American West).
How about you? What were some of your major trips this year? How did 2009 turn out for you? How is your outlook for 2010?
A quick list of our main travels for 2009:
February – Manila, Philippines – 4 days
March – Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia – 9 days
April: Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia – 4 days
May: Thousand Islands, Indonesia – 5 days
June/July – Ubud / Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia – 3 weeks
July – Manila, Philippines (uh, still here)
September – Hong Kong – 4 days
October – Boracay, Philippines – 9 days
November – Batangas, Philippines – 3 days
December – Banaue, Philippines – 5 days
December – Singapore – 2 weeks
And a visual summary of 2009. (oldest to most recent) Enjoy.

I’ve done this many times, but last summer I managed to fall into quite a deep pit of mud. Let me tell you – it’s not fun. Half a mile from home, your sandals full of muck; muck that’s not just dirt if you manage to catch a whiff, with the locals laughing it up. I had a choice – save my camera but take a dive in the muck, or risk my camera falling but saving myself. Those of you that know me will inevitably know the answer to that one.
