Memories of 2013 may be fading fast, but before we leap too far into 2014, here are a few snapshots of the roads I’ve wandered over the past year . . .
In 2013 I re-discovered the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with trips to the San Juans, Whidbey Island, Idaho,
The Dalles and Seaside, Oregon, thanks to my sponsored travel hosts . . .
I fell in love with Quebec . . .
and flew high, sometimes outside my comfort zone . . .

I sampled a multitude of culinary delights along the way, which fortunately were sprinkled throughout the year . . .
I made new friends fast . . .
probably because we spent most of our time lounging around in bathrobes when not in spas, saunas and hot tubs . . .
Oh, and I learned how to take selfies . . .
My 2013 travels brought renewed perspective . . .
reminding me to step back far enough . . .
and high enough . . .
to see the bigger picture of our life stories and how we are all interconnected . . .
and that even when skies seem the darkest, there’s always the promise of a new rainbow . . .
Here’s wishing you another year of Happy Travel Adventures both near and far, Wanderboomers!
