This was a year of lots of business and personal travel. As I get to posts about some of the individual trips (the personal ones), I will link them from this post.
The biggest travel news of the year is that I visited Hawaii and completed my 50 state quest. My original plan was to complete this trip by my 50th birthday, or even for my 50th birthday, but I only missed it by a year and a half. And in a lifetime of travel, that’s not too bad.
