2018, travel, year in review
● Where was I? Spain & Portugal

Here we go again! As always, I write this for personal reasons, but you’re welcome to revisit the past year with me. Ahhhh, looks can be deceiving. From the above graph, you might think I stayed at home more than last year. Well, kinda but not really…

2017, travel, year in review
● Where was I? Spain, Morocco, Portugal, France, & USA.

It’s back! As always, I write this for personal reasons, but you’re welcome to revisit the past year with me. This year turned out to be as crazy as last, so I’ve grouped events into a few broad categories to help make sense of it all.

2016, travel, year in review
● Where was I? USA, Argentina, Japan, Spain, France, & Portugal.

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. The insane pace of 2016 makes a month-by-month summary impossible to write & even worse to read, so I’ve grouped events of the year into a few broad categories. Let’s go!

camera, collection, DMC-LX3, S30, S80, S95, DMC-LF1, Panasonic, Canon

I purchased my very first digital camera in January 2002, one month after a big economic crisis hit Argentina. How I wish I’d had that Canon PowerShot S30 during December 2001! Definitely low res by today’s standards, but what a fantastic camera. Unfortunately the lens jammed & rendered the camera useless. Over the years I upgraded to a Canon SuperShot G3 (still works, a brick of a camera), a Canon EOS Digital Rebel (left in Argentina), a Canon PowerShot S80 (might work if I could recharge it!), switched to a Panasonic DMC-LX3 (still around, probably my best camera ever), back to a Canon PowerShot S95 (basically fell apart piece by piece), then a Panasonic DMC-LF1 (dust got inside the lens but still ok). These days, I’m not sure if I should stick with Panasonic, go back to Canon, or try another brand altogether. Decisions, decisions…

2015 by day

Confession: This has been a very difficult year for me, perhaps the most difficult in my life. A break up early last year tore me apart emotionally, & I’m finally moving on after a lot of introspection. Reconnecting with old friends has helped as has dating again. However, I’m not at a point where I can objectively write about the last year. Let’s leave it at that. 2016 can’t come soon enough ;-)
