Year in Review: 2012

I put one of these slide shows each New Year’s (see 2011, 2010).. but with this week’s Photo Challenge topic, I’ve decided to publish this year’s a few days early.

As you can see, I had a fantastic year. Hope you all did to, and that 2013 would be a continuation of a wonderful adventure.

Snapshot: Dubrovnik

I just added a new country to my list of have-visited.. and I’m very excited and happy about this new addition: Croatia. I’m still in post-holiday daze and need to collect my thoughts before posting. But in the meantime, let me share one of my favourite pictures I snapped of Dubrovnik.
