With the last days of 2016 steadily ticking by it’s time to stop and reflect on the year that has been.  The ups, the downs, the places and the faces; the things that made us laugh or cry and all the things that inspired that deep set wanderlust for travel.

2016 has all been about ‘home’ for me.  It’s been time to go back to the basics, shed materialistic things and experience life living out of a suitcase (ok, ok, two suitcases.  And a carry on, but who’s counting?).  I’ve had a lot of personal landmark moments over these last twelve months; I’ve lived in three different states, paid off credit card debt and then impulse booked a one way international flight for next year.

I also started this blog.

So what exactly is The Travel Whispers Blogger Challenge?
