Highlights of 2013

It seems only a few weeks ago that I was writing my post highlights of 2012… where does time go? Well the blog may have been a bit quieter than 2012, but my life certainly hasn’t been!

From Russian hat shopping in St Petersburg…to elephant riding in Chiang mai…to visiting genetalia shaped rocks in Coppadocia.. there have certainly been lots of adventures!

Here are my highlights of 2013…

So all in all, a pretty good year once again! I will shortly be driving home for Christmas and looking forward to spending a few of the final days of 2013 with my family.

To all my readers, a very happy Christmas and a happy new year!
