Over the year, we were blessed to “get our passports stamped” in 14 countries (Austria, Canada, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and Tanzania), visiting 38 cities abroad, as well as being able to visit a number of regions and cities within the United States.
At the places where we stayed and settled in, there was time for learning, exploration, and/or relaxation. Some stops on the way to someplace else offered us brief glimpses, whetting our appetites to return.
A sampling of some of our favorite pictures (below) offer a sense of our travels, which are also marked on the map at the end of this post. A travel writer is very fortunate to have a great photographer at her side, and I’m very thankful for mine, my husband Jerry. His pictures bring back wonderful memories of where we went and what we did.
We both wish everyone a wonderful New Year in 2014, one filled with peace, happiness, good health and new discoveries.
Warm regards, Irene and Jerry
