Goodbye 2015

Goodbye 2015

If I could sum up 2015 in just one word I would use "unexpected". I took 40 flights and explored more places than I could have ever dreamed of. I went to Hong Kong, Macau, Lech, Rome, Miami, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, Portland, London, Dorset, Paris, Iceland, Copenhagen, Germany, Arizona, Mexico, San Francisco, Big Sur and Bermuda. Looking back, it's crazy to realize how I'm always on the go, but I always feel like I'm doing something wrong if I'm not adventuring around this incredible world of ours. I also had to learn some hard lessons in 2015, but it's only made me stronger and value the good people in my life even more than before. I hope you realize that this will always be my highlight reel and I go through the same struggles, hardships and losses every day that you do as well. 2015 also taught me that unexpected kindness can go a long way and you'll never regret being the kindest version of yourself and working on yourself with every passing day. As always, thank you so much for following along on my adventures and I hope you have a wonderful 2016 ahead!
