Where did we go in 2016? Mostly Southeast Asia. And then Switzerland and France, with a little Spain and England thrown in. And we had plenty of adventures along the way, from kayaking on the UNESCO World Heritage site of Halong Bay to visiting an orphanage in Vung Tau to taking surf lessons in Bali!!
I have long dreamed of visiting Moab, Utah, ever since I saw an article on mountain biking there in Outside magazine over 15 years ago. I would glare at the images of bikers negotiating huge slickrocks and confidently riding the tops of 50-foot arches.

What I love about Switzerland in winter is its easy access to an array of winter sports. No matter where you are, within a relatively short drive up a mountain, you can find a regional playground that hosts all the cross-country-skiing, snowshoeing, sledding and even downhill skiing you can handle.
