"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page

Here is my 2011 recap, where I obtained entry stamps from the following cities:
Kuala Lumpur
Sydney and Adelaide

.. and no stamps from the following local destinations:

Puerto Rico

2012 started off with a lovely trip to Barcelona. We then had a great time in Barbados (again) and St. Lucia in April.

Late August/ early September saw me in Europe - San Sebastian, Biarritz and Paris.

In late November, I went to Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Taipei, Bali and Tokyo!

I got married in December 2013. Limited vacation days meant travel this year was light. I did fly back to Kuala Lumpur in June, with a quick stop over in Dubai.  
Finally, we travelled to Southern Vietnam for our honeymoon - first to Phan Thiet and then to Saigon. 

I will be making up for lost time in 2014. January will see me in LA (First time yo!) and in February, I head off to London and Montreal (and it's only the first week of January as I write this!)

Regardless I'm a Type-A planner and my pre-trip research, whilst scary to some, has always paid off. Click on each link where available or email me if you need tips on any of these locations!

  1. Hi Usha: Do you speak French? Is it necessary to speak French if going to Paris? I have heard locals are not very receptive to English. I am going in a few months and wanted to know if I should brush up on French; I took it for a year in high school, so I barely recall anything.
