2012: A Year in Review
Another year is coming to an end. As this year exits making way for the new one, let me look back on the year that is 2012.
Hubs and I attended our first Fan Fest Day at AT%T Park. It's great that we did it because at the end of the season, my home team the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS won it all.
Spent an amazing quick get-away in the wine country (here, here, and here) that included a fabulous meal at JOHN ASH & CO.
I saw my first dalmatian horse; which according to a horse-lover friend of mine is actually an appaloosa breed.
The second road trip of the year took us to the California's Northern Coast where we commune with nature, particularly the giant sequoia trees......
And where I gawk at some of the prettiest Victorian houses I've ever laid my eyes on. (More here, here, here, here and here)
The summer was spent in India and Bangladesh where I saw these:
Incredible Agra Fort
Enjoy the Mughal architecture some more in old capital city of Fatehpur Sikri.
Arrive in Amber Fort on an elephant.
Walk the beach of Cox's Bazar, known as the longest unbroken sandy sea beach at 125 km. Post coming soon.
Mingle with local fishermen and their sampans at a quaint fishing village in Teknaf. Post coming soon.
Third road trip found us in the beach town of Bolinas.
Fourth and last roadtrip, a quick day trip to Capitola.
And before the year comes to a close, we took a 7-day Caribbean cruise visiting two Mayan ruins (just in case you know) both in Mexico and stops in Belize and Honduras.
Our travel partners or shall we say cruise partners. We met them at the Mediterranean cruise some 3 years ago and toured Cairo with them. We kept in touch and decided to cruise together again.
List of countries I visited this year:
It has been one busy year. Thank God for all the blessings as well as the bumps in the road.
Happy New Year to everyone. May our new year bring forth peace of mind and joy in our hearts. Always be a little kinder.
