I originally wrote this post in mid-January but didn’t get to post it for – wait for it – lack of a picture. This is the main reason I haven’t been blogging lately: Because I can’t be bothered with photos. And each article needs at least one cover picture and a few more photos as you scroll down, right?

With the New Year only a few days old – is it too early to start planning? Why, of course it never is.
Now that 2016 is almost over I want to look back on it. It has been a spectacular year. Intense, often wonderful, sometimes less so and on the whole I year I will remember.
Come with me as I look back on an eventful 12 months.
We were fully aware that we would be in serious need of recovery after our wedding. The weeks leading up to this very special event had been strenuous and even the day before it was after 8 pm when I ate for the first time since breakfast – because there simply hadn’t been time for it earlier.

There wasn’t exactly a big choice of hotels in the vicinity of where we were going to get married. Three hotels qualified in theory with two of them quickly disqualifying (one for their terribly unfriendly owner, one for looking a bit out-of-date). So we ended up booking a room in a business hotel. At least they told me there was going to be food for me at breakfast.
