My (almost) year in Travel 2014

Overlooking the city of Chicago

My first taste of international travel was in 2010 and that bug has stayed with me ever since. This time the travel bug bit in a big way and became more of a life’s calling than just itchy feet! The year 2014 saw significant changes to my usual routine; new challenges, great learning opportunities and wonderful ways to connect with myself, with the Power of the universe and with the unknown places and citizens of the world.

As I remember my experience, a few words that I used to track my travels come to mind: grateful, blessed, family, friends, food, adventures2014, yummy, inspired, born2fly, la vie est belle!

But hey, in this way, the adventure continues….
