2016: year in review

year in review, 2016

It’s back! As always, I write this for personal reasons, but you’re welcome to revisit the past year with me. Sorry about no 2015 review but believe me, some things are better left unsaid ;-) It’s all más que bien ahora.

digital photography, 2002-2016

España, Spain, Medinaceli, 2002

… I probably don’t treat my cameras as well as I should… but they are always at hand to document where work or vacation takes me. By coincidence, I realized that I’d taken a photo today everyday since 2002. How is that possible? The fact that we can look back & see where we were at different points in our life is amazing. Probably something we’d never be able to do if cameras were still analog only. Whether I was traveling with friends, working, packing up after my mom passed away or investigating material for a new guide, these pics bring back lots of memories.

2013 by day

Welcome to the fifth edition of my year in review. I write this for personal reasons, but you’re welcome to revisit the past year with me ;-) I’ll go out on a limb & say it. 2014 turned out to be one of the best years ever, in every regard except a major one. Let’s focus on the positive for now, shall we?

ten years in the making

Robert Wright, blog, Line of Sight, header, wrighton.com.ar

This year seems to be packed with anniversaries. Not only did I move to Seattle 20 years ago, but a decade ago I began writing & posting photos on Line of Sight. This week marks my tenth year blogging!

personal: feliz día del amigo

John Hackett, Robert Wright, Seattle, Washington, 1994

This month marks a huge anniversary for me, & I need to send an equally big message of thanks to a couple of people. Not the typical post for me; however, today it’s appropriate. After all, it’s the Día del Amigo here in Argentina. But first, a little background…

personal: 2014 schedule

2014 work schedule, Portugal

Although it seems less complicated than last year, in 2014 I’ll be busier & will put a lot more kilometers on some lucky pair of Adidas this year. Good thing I love my job(s)!

cádiz: exorcising demons

España, Spain, Cádiz, Plaza de San Antonio

Even as a child, I had a strong desire to travel … Yet at the age of 27, I’d only managed to go as far as the Bahamas, Canada & México. When my ex landed a job as Assistant Director for the University of Washington’s Spanish program in Cádiz, I was all for it. Finally an opportunity to go to Europe! The year was 1998, & I knew the experience would change my life.

personal: typical research day

Rick Steves, research, guidebook, update

Next week I’ll be embarking on another intense work trip beginning with two solid weeks of guidebook research for Rick Steves. A few readers might be thinking: oooh, how exciting! what a glamorous job! Certainly some fun moments will occur, but overall the schedule is so tight that there’s little room for glamour :-)

Schedule 2013

I’ve been busy the past week attempting to confirm dates & purchasing flights. While I’ve made progress, arranging three months of travel is always insane. Hopefully I’ll have time to write about my experiences along the way, but the reality is that work comes first. If I disappear from the internet from May to July, know I’m alive & well. Here’s where I’ll be…
