Spending New Years with my big bro in Jordan, Israel, and Croatia
Falling in love with a Frenchman
Flying to London to visit my college roommate and her more-than-lovely family during their holiday.
followed closely by:
Seeing the Queen of England on Easter Sunday (and literally peeing my pants while waiting in a storm for service to commence)
Walking 7 hours to the Poland-Belarus border with all of my belongings and getting booted out of the country after a few hours, a few shots of Vodka, a few samplings of sausages, and a hail storm.
So what will 2017 bring? Let’s see!
