2017 Travel Year in Review

Whew, it was a busy year of travel! Stepping into the year, I knew there would be trips to Hawaii, LA, Ventura and Chicago.

But then there were all the other trips to San Francisco, Denver, Palm Springs, Fort Worth, Orange County, LA (many), Philadelphia, across the border to Tijuana and Valle de Guadalupe and Hawaii (again).

Sometimes I travel for races, sometimes for work, sometimes to visit family. I always manage to fit in runs to explore by foot, museum time, and try new restaurants. My friends and even people I just meet offer thoughtful recommendations for places to visit and restaurants to try.

I started blogging in August, so though there are pics for many of the early trips in 2017, not all are documented. I may go back to fill in the holes in my spare time :)

Links are provided for easy access to the posts. Enjoy!
