Looking back at all my photos from this year, I can't believe where I went and what I've accomplished. I traveled to six continents (someday I'll see you, Antarctica), wrote countless stories for a variety of outlets, including my continued work with National Geographic Travel, and increased my number of speaking gigs as a keynoter and panelist talking travel, media, and trends. I met many of my career goals and have many more I want to accomplish in the next 12-18 months. There were significant personal challenges in this year of transition, like all of us face. But I'll remember the great love and fun of this year (and hope for a little less craziness next year).
May 2016 bring you great adventure, incredible love, and major highlights for your work and personal life.
I am headed to Thailand and Myanmar for Christmas & New Year's and can't wait to be back in Southeast Asia - have a wonderful holiday!
