Where We Went in 2017

2017 was a particularly busy year travel wise.  Apart from our usual trips,  there were two ‘significant’ birthdays and two family gatherings that were all celebrated with mini breaks abroad.

 

JANUARY

We rang in the year in Washington DC where we stayed for 5 nights before heading to New York.
