My Year in Cities: 2011

Wow. It seems like we were just celebrating Thanksgiving and now it's December 31. So it's that time again for the annual "Year in Cities" post. Same rules as 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010: One or more nights must be spent in each city.

  • Carmel, CA
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Scottsdale, AZ
  • Boston, MA
  • New York, NY
  • Singapore
  • Bali, Indonesia
  • Calistoga, CA
  • Guerneville, CA
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Los Cabos, Mexico
  • Hilton Head Island, SC

We started 2011 in Carmel, and decided to end the year in the seaside town as well. This morning, we walked to La Bicyclette for breakfast (fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon rolls are the daily special on Saturdays!), then strolled around town while it was still pretty empty. We took the long way back to the house with a walk along the beach and then decided to visit the Carmel Mission (it's been on our list of places to check out for a while now).


This year has been busy, busy, busy, so it's nice to take it easy and spend the last day of 2011 relaxing and enjoying such simple pleasures. Here's hoping that 2012 is filled with many more adventures, big and small!
