Food, photography and hiking dominate my list of memorable moments from 2013. The year saw a bittersweet end to our year in France as we took full advantage of our last 6 months in Europe visiting Spain, Morocco, Italy, Scandinavia as well as other destinations in France. After our return to the US, trips to East Africa and the western US just reinforced how much there is to explore in this world.
Happy New Year everyone!
