Since it is the end of December I have been looking back over the past year.
I was thinking about where I have been this year and found that I had a little less travel than in previous years.
My first trip of the year did not come until March when I had a trip to Japan. Fortunately it was Cherry Blossom time and I at least got to see some beautiful scenery. Of course, I also had some great food.In May I was in Jena, Germany to teach a class and got to see one of my favorite bridges.
See: Burgauer Brücke
In June/July I went to Israel to participate in a dig at Khirbet al-Ra’i.
See: Two Weeks of Digging
July found me headed south to Brazil where I had some wonderful meals. Oh, and I also visited the Sao Paulo Zoo and some historical sites on the weekend between courses.
In October I made a trip to Nebraska and Iowa to attend the wedding of my niece. It was A Beautiful Wedding.
What will the next year hold for travel? I do not have anything planned yet, but I am sure that I will be making a few trips.
Which of these places would you like to visit?
