2015 was an interesting year of travel for me. Although I traveled extensively, I spent most of the time going back to places I’d been in the past, getting to see them more in-depth or in a different way.
For example, after spending the last 10 summers in interior Alaska, we moved to Glacier Bay National Park and I got to spend six months in southeast Alaska. I was left with a completely new appreciation for that part of the state, even though living in a rain forest tested my psyche.
In the fall, we spent 60 days traveling through Mexico. Although I once traveled nearly 2000 miles overland across Mexico, this time I got to see 13 states, nine state capitals, five impressive pre-Columbian ruins and the Day of the Dead fiesta. It was really cool to revisit the cities I’d seen before and to experience the country properly.
I also went back to Cuba, a place I went 12 years ago. Just like last time, I was blown away by this unique and fascinating country. I think I appreciated it more this time now that I am a lot older and a little wiser.
Although 2015 was a great year, I am really looking forward to 2016. I some exciting travel plans that I will let you all know about when the time is right. Until then, here is a gallery of 50 photos from the year. Click on any photo to open a slideshow view.
