The ending of another year, and so much to reflect on. 2016 was a year I could not have expected. There were highs and lows, and with each season new lessons learned. Travel has had its pull on me since I was a little girl, and I am grateful to get to share that passion with each and every one of you. Your support, your kind words and emails mean the world — thank you!
