A Look Back at 2012

as i sit here half-awake on my last day in Krakow on the last day of the year, i’ve been trying to suss out how i feel about 2012. while compared to 2011 my travels haven’t been so “exotic” or “indie”, no doubt this was a great year.

rather than go chronologically, i think i’d rather group experiences together into themes. so, without further ado, highlights of the last 365 days (with one more day, including new year’s eve in Vienna, to go!):
