Another Blogging Year is Over

Another year is over. While this certainly wasn't my most productive blogging year on here (partly due to another blog I've started about our life in northern Peru) it brought some interesting and also some fun posts.

In January and February I ventured into the social/political comment sphere and wrote about the advantages and disadvantages of certain passports. In March I started a short series about several larger cities in Switzerland (Lucerne, Winterthur, Basel, etc.) and fun things to do while visiting them. In July I wrote about remedies for the homesick Swiss and in September I shared my memories of typical Swiss birthday parties.

I enjoyed the writing of all those posts and am looking forward to writing more this coming year 2018. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and will be following as it's journey continues!

A blessed and joyous 2018 to all!
