Looking Back at 2017

This has been an interesting year with a lot of changes including moving back to the United States and changing jobs. We visited seven different countries including the Netherlands, Greece, Italy, France, Romania, Ireland, and Ecuador. We enjoyed each of those countries for various reasons. Obviously, having moved back to the US, our opportunity to visit different countries in 2018 has been reduced, but we hope to make a couple of trips to places that we haven’t visited before. This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is 2017 Favorites, so we have tried to pick our favorite photo from each of those places. As we fly to Chicago tomorrow, we will likely be quieter than normal. We wish everyone Happy Holidays and Best Wishes in the New Year!
