2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 13 years to get that many views.

Go, Eat, Give

Anyone reading this blog has probably figured out that I like travel and food. I also like helping people — and I know a lot of you out there do, as well.

So I thought I’d let you know about an organization that helps you do all three. It’s Go. Eat. Give.

With this group, you book a trip, but on their trips, you also contribute your time to help others. It can be for a day or a few hours or the whole time you’re away. In exchange, you get to immerse yourself in the local culture, including the food.

Hard to imagine a more rewarding way to spend one’s vacation time.

They offer destinations all across Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America, so there’s bound to be something that will fit your interests and the skills you wish to use.

As their website says, their goal is to connect people, places, and palates. Check them out. Plan a trip that can make a difference. Go. Eat. Give.
