While I was having breakfast this morning, I was zapping through some blogs and found a lot of “My 2011 in pics”-posts…so I wondered how my 2011 in pictures would look like and I figured it would be about traveling to European metropoles, the French countryside or roaming Southern India…I actually cant believe to how many different places I ve been this year….amazing, I hope I can keep this up 🙂
So, HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody, may 2012 be a wonderful and succesful year for all of you!
So I thought Id give it a go, this is MY 2011 in pictures….
