My Year in Cities, 2012

Post from December 27, 2012 (↻ October 16, 2014), filed under .

Beside working and growing and trying new things (more soon now), I’ve been in the great position to also travel a little. I’m very grateful. This year I visited 5 continents, more than 20 different countries, and probably more than 50 different cities (much of this as part of my first full trip around the world). Here are the larger ones that I had not seen before:

Most favorite city? Probably Dubai (cheers Asim!). I still see myself in front of the Burj Khalifa. What an impressive structure. The Petronas Towers, which I saw only a few days later, don’t compare.

Least favorite city? I should probably say Manila, where I got mugged (remind me to tell you the story), but I choose Colombo instead. It was a strange place, and I no fit for it.
