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
