2012 Travels & 2013 Goals

January 22, 2013
Gaudi Park, Barcelona

I feel like every year is so crazy different recently, I never know what’s coming at me (or maybe that’s my refusal/inability to plan more than a month or two out), and 2012 ended up being an awesome travel year for me. So many amazing experiences, and quite a few that I was absolutely not expecting.

My 2012 Travel Round-up:

Mediterranean Highlights Tour

I had the opportunity to kick off 2012 with two weeks on Contiki’s Mediterranean Highlights tour checking out Spain, France, Monaco, Italy & Vatican City while meeting awesome people from around the world. That’s one way to set the travel bar high for the rest of the year!

Favorite parts:

  • Biking around Barcelona checking out all of the art – particularly Gaudi!
  • Driving along the French Riviera.
  • Shopping at local markets before picnicking in Nice.
  • Dance parties on the coach. ;)
  • Meeting up with my friend D and her husband after the tour and crashing their honeymoon for a few days while we explored more of Rome.
