My Year in Cities, 2008

Post from December 31, 2008 (↻ August 16, 2013), reflecting Jens the .

As per Anne, in no chronological order and intentionally incomplete, here are some cities I visited in 2008. I couldn’t resist.

The stories behind these cities vary (more so on my Travel Map on Facebook, I guess), from just stopping to explore a city to staying for a couple of nights to actually living there, and include both repeated and first time visits. However, the 11 countries my trips involved contributed to an exciting and overall very successful 2008 for which I’m quite grateful.

Guys, Happy New Year, see you in 2009.

    I think there is a problem. I don’t see Paris in your list. A mistake ? Or another city to visit ;) ?

    Nicolas, I didn’t make Paris this year but that’s definitely, finally something for 2009—and I’ll ping you first thing I’m about to book the trip :) Happy New Year!

    Hey men, you should visit Tokyo someday and add couple of major cities in Japan to your great list :)

    Masa-san, nice to see you here :) You’re of course right, Tokyo must be one of the priorities for 2009 (and I’d just love to go rather sooner than later) :)

    Happy New Year…!

    That’s nothing!
    I’ve been to all these cities twice and the capital of Elbonia.

    you are missing out on all the fun US East Coast has to offer. Although I can how the spice for what you do really thrives in the cities you traveled to this past year. I am looking to fly into Berlin within the next few months if business doesn’t get in the way (last in Germany about a year ago) jedem guten Beer oder Vereine(clubs?), die Sie empfehlen sollte ich besuchen?
