My 200th Post: A Trip Down Memory Lane

That’s right, this is my 200th post! So I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane with some of my favorite photos. A lot has happened in 200 posts (especially since I didn’t post very often when I first started blogging) and I’ve seen many more places than I could’ve imagined when I decided to start this blog.

The first trip I took after starting my blog was when I accomplished my goal of making it to all seven continents before my 30th birthday. I traveled to Hong Kong, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and several stops in Australia.

I took a Spanish class in Quito, Ecuador for a week, where I got to stand on the equator and eat cuy.

Before going to Quito, I met Andy through Twitter and started to fall in love with him. We finally met in person in Prague during a cold weekend in November.

After a stressful few months of selling my things, Andy and I got married and I moved to Freiburg, Germany.

Andy and I took a few trips last summer before I headed out on a five month round the world trip. That was something I dreamed about for years, and even though it wasn’t anything like I imagined, it was still a great trip in many ways.

Andy and I finally took our honeymoon to Turkey in the spring. Turkey is now on my short list of favorite countries because it was so wonderful.

This summer we visited Brussels, Carcassonne, Andorra, Barcelona, and Portugal.

And these are just a few of my travel memories over almost three years! It’s been a lot of fun running this blog, and I hope to continue improving it and adding more stories. Even though this blog is about my experiences, ultimately I love to encourage others to travel. I love getting your comments and emails, and I’m so appreciative of all of you who keep coming back to read my blog! Join me for another 200 posts?
