This Year in Sam’s World – 2012

Every year you should keep notes of all the exciting things that happen throughout the 12 months and come the end of December you can reflect on what you have achieved and experienced.

Here is a little summary of Sam’s 2012 year in Travel;

January– I finally managed to convince Tom to come backpacking with me! YAY!
February– Nothing exciting to report.
March– We went on the best 2 week holiday to Thailand! Visited Bangkok, Krabi, Elephant hills and the beautiful paradise islands.
April– After 18 months of Tom and I living together we move home to save for our big RTW adventure!
May– Opened an account on Blogger and started my blog ‘Totally Sam’s World’
June– Moved my blog to WordPress- it all looked very confusing! I also visited Venice with a friend, got lost in the beautiful city and ticked ‘go to the Opera’ of my Travel Bucket list.
July– Saving, saving, saving. ‘Don’t buy clothes, don’t buy shoes’
August– Booked our one way flight with STA! We are flying with Jet air (any feedback?!) into BKK, April 26th 2013. Woooohoooooo!
September– ‘Totally Sam’s World’ goes self-hosted (Thank you Cez for your help!) I am officially a massive Travel Blogging GEEK! And I love it.
October– Tom and I visited Amsterdam!
November– My first ever backpack has arrived! Start getting my jabs for South East Asia- delightful. It is all getting real though! Mega excited.
December– Saving like a mad woman. Hoping to invest in a snazzy SLR Digital camera for Christmas ready for lots of RTW artistic shots!

I am sure my 2013 will be much more jam packed! Very much looking forward to it!

What have you done this year? Feel free to comment, It is always good to sit back, reminisce and share your stories with others.

Cheers 🙂
