I just noticed Kottke’s year in cities post and figured that’s as good a way to sum up my year as anything. A lot of it seems a bit of a blur and I think a lot of that is down to the travel … and of course the wedding.

So here’s my list of cities I visited in 2006:

  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Houston, TX, USA
  • Austin, TX, USA
  • Chicago, IL, USA
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Bucharest, Romania
  • Warsaw, Poland
  • Cincinnati, OH, USA

I also almost went to Russia, but let’s just say things got … lost and complicated.


  • Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne & Wear
  • Market Bosworth, Leicestershire
  • Bristol, Somerset
  • Bath, Avon
  • Weybridge, Surrey
  • Woking, Surrey
  • London
  • Leeds, Yorkshire
  • Tiverton, Devon

Unfortunately I didn’t get to make it home this year, although we’re hoping to make it back to South Africa in 2007.
