Looking Back at the Last 365

November 18, 2009


It’s hard to believe that one year ago today I was on a train from Stockholm to Karlstad after spending two nights on a boat visiting the Latvian Capitol, Riga. It was a crazy couple of days, and thinking about it definitely sent my mind wandering to the past 365 and all that has happened […]
