2016 - The Year in Cities

My travels were limited to 8 cities in 3 countries in the Americas this year as I completed my metamorphosis from a dashing adventurer into a caring family man. The domestic outings consisted of a road trip from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon via historic Route 66 and a 34-hour train ride on the California Zephyr to Denver from Oakland. The only nights spent away from towns, villages, or cities in 2016 were at the Samona Lodge in the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador, with the rest of the journey to the middle of the world spent in and around the capital Quito or in the enchanting Galapagos Islands.

The 2016 List
  • Colorado Springs, USA
  • Denver, USA
  • Las Vegas, USA
  • Puerto Ayora, Ecuador
  • Quito, Ecuador
  • San Francisco, USA
  • Vancouver, Canada
  • Williams, USA

Past Lists
 Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.
