Reflections on 2006 as it comes to a close
15.12.2006 - 19.12.2006 7 °C
It is almost the end of the year, so I will say a Merry Christmas (or whatever other holiday you might be celebrating at this time of year) and a happy new year to all you.
Here's some images to get you in the mood.

Regular readers will note a link at the top of the entry to a map. The boys at Travellerspoint have added a mapping feature. So my future blogs (as well as my past ones, if you want to go back and read) will include maps for your education and viewing pleasure.
A short statistical analysis of my travel year. I need to keep track of my time spent out of Canada for tax purposes, and as such I can say that I spent 215 days of 365 possible (58.9%) of my time outside of Canada this year. Sadly, most of it was in less than glamorous New Jersey. I also flew a total of 42,985 miles this year.
Anyway, this entry is really boring, eh? Next week I'm off to Panama for a week, so hopefully I'll have something nicer to write about. As my last entry of the year, though, I do vow to make a New Years Resolution.
I resolve to NOT write any more about how crappy I find Newark airport. It seems like it's almost all I wrote about this year. So no more next year on Newark.
Of course, I just found out today that I could be in Atlanta next year for a spell. Have you heard the horror stories about Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta? You probably will...
