My year in cities, 2010

Time for my traditional list of the cities I spent one or more nights in during 2010:

  • Portland, OR (home)
  • Mexico cruise ship
  • Seattle, WA
  • Ashland, OR
  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Tauranga, New Zealand
  • Wellington, New Zealand
  • New Plymouth, New Zealand
  • Opononi, New Zealand
  • Paihia, New Zealand

The Mexico cruise was a new experience — our first cruise ship vacation. We'll definitely do that again sometime in the future.

Visiting Ashland for the Shakespeare festival has become an annual tradition; we'll be back again in 2011.

The big trip for 2010 was the New Zealand tour. Four weeks visiting family and favorite places from when we lived there, and some new places, plus burying my father's ashes (he died in December 2009). I may blog more about it, once my wife has finished posting the photos.

(Compare to 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2006.)
