I traveled more in 2011 than any previous year. After quitting my job as on optometric technician in July I’ve tried to spend as much time on the road as possible. I traveled to places that were new (Turkey), places I visit every year (Bozeman, Orlando, Portland) and places I haven’t been to in years (Sidney, B.C., Madison, WI)
I swam in the Aegean Sea, saw the biggest hockey stick in the world, skied in July, rode Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride at Universal, and flew in my first float plane. I look forward to the adventures that are to come in 2012.
Here are some of 2011 stats along with a couple of pictures.
Beds I’ve slept in: 23
Hottest Temperature: 100 degrees in Izmir, Turkey
Coldest Temperature: 7 degrees in Montana during weekend of Cat/Griz game

Pictures are of Pamela and me at the Stadium in Ephesus, watching a Sounders game on my laptop in an airport, and mimicking a kissing sand sculpture in Parksville, British Columbia.
