2009 Travels

Home  /  2009 Travels

The last of the golden years of backpacking,the year started with great trips to New York and Oxford.  Next, I wanted to fuse my 2005 cross-Europe/U2 touring along with my love of travelling the Middle East.  Finally, I rounded off the year with more concerts in Chicago, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Vancouver.   It was a massive year of travel by all accounts, and one that I will never forget.  I will always use my overland trip from Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon as my high water mark for independent travel.
