January 11, 2014

Just eleven days into the new year and I can’t believe how fast life is flying by! 2013 was an amazing year for me and at times I wonder how 2014 could possibly top it?

A few highlights from 2013:

Near the beginning of the year I quit my job at APU~Moved to Russia~Learned how to navigate Moscow and get around by myself~Learned LOTS of  new things and new ways of doing things~Traveled to Sweden to see a friend~Traveled to Ireland to see a friend~Spent a beautiful 3 weeks at home in So Cal~Took a quick road trip up to SF to renew my visa, see friends, and watch the Giants play~Went back to Russia~ Sold my beloved Camry for my asking price~Had my dad visit Moscow and showed him around a bit~Took a cruise with Hannah and visited some new places~Took a 3 week Europe trip with Christy and again visited some new places~Moved into Moscow and adjusted to a new schedule again~Started attending an expat Bible study and made lots of new friends~Finished up my 30 countries before age 30~Spent time in 12 countries~Spent time in these capital cities = Stockholm, Dublin, Moscow, Budapest, Prague, Rome, Paris, Monte Carlo, Vienna ~ Learned some more Russian~Got to come back to CA for 3 wonderful weeks and spend time with so many friends!

The huge Christmas tree in front of GUM and St. Basil’s in the background (and falling snow!)

Hopefully I will be better at chronicling my year this year on the blog!
