Happy Holidays everyone! I wish you all a joyful and well deserved holiday season.
We had another adventurous year, circumnavigating the globe and visiting 15 countries. France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Greece, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, United States (but less than 35 days), Japan, and Taiwan.
Our Instagram shares some great photos of each.
Jr now has 28 unique stamps in his 2 passports. I was surprised when I added it all up this morning.
Nearly as surprising was the ever elusive “productivity.” This post is the 29th of the year, including 3 guest posts. That is about 1 blog post every 2 weeks. The 4 hour workweek is real. We also hosted meetups in NYC, Philly, Minneapolis, and SF, as well as meeting about 20 readers for coffee here and there.GCC readers are some of the nicest people.
We are in Taiwan now for an extended period (we signed a lease!) Winnie has started watercolor classes and flute lessons again, Jr has been spending a few hours a day at playgroup, and I’ve been biking on the regular. I feel so normal.
If you are of the biking persuasion, maybe check out the Go Curry Cracker Cycling Club on Strava for good times. Come March, I’ll be doing a 200 km bike “race.”
To wrap up the year, here are the most popular new posts of 2017:
