How do you choose?

A friend of mine who lives in NYC goes away every Thanksgiving.  She reasons “why waste a 4 day weekend in NYC?”.   In the last couple years she’s been to Istanbul and Lisbon, and this year it was Madrid’s turn. It got me thinking. What ‘travel traditions’ do you have?


So I started this year with a plan.  I was going to make 2014 awesome!  As we are nearing the end of the year and I reflect on the past 12 months, I think I have done a pretty good job of it too.
