the best of 2009!

December 1 Trip. What was your best trip in 2009?
This year we were busy with wedding planning so travelling wasn't a huge priority. We made it to Tremblant twice and stayed with friends in a cabin up there, which was lovely (even though I nearly killed myself trying to ski for the second time in my life...) We had a great deal of visits this year (from BC, Sweden, London, Arizon, and Ontario... but we only made it to Ontario). Other than that, the only other travels were during our lovely honeymoon in the south of France. Travelling to this area was awe inspiring and just reinforced for me how beautiful the world really is. Seriously, beyond description. I don't know the answer whether god created the earth or if it was a big bang, but I do know that the sheer beauty of it is divine.
I was ecstatic about being able to dip my toes in the Mediterranean sea. Having spent so much time studying Europe, literature, history, and culture... being able to do this was one of those great moments. Simple, I know, but profoundly fantastic nonetheless. And the best part.... it was warm. Pure bliss I tell you, pure bliss! I don't know why, but it's always the small moments that define the voyage. Bicycles in Amsterdam, lassis in India, the Harvard bookstore in Boston... and the mediterranean in France.
