This is my 300th blog post, you guys! Holy crap that is a lot of blog posts over the last three years and three months. (So many threes!) I’m also thisclose (six more!) to getting 300 followers and while I know it’s obviously not the biggest accomplishment on the internet, it still means something to me.

To celebrate, I’m going to round up a bunch of different things that this blog and I have been and done and seen, different numbers and ‘fun facts’. And here’s to whatever comes next!

Places We’ve Been:

+ Taiwan – I didn’t post much about it, but in July/August of  2011, I spent time teaching in Taiwan.
+ Kentucky –  In October 2011, I took a road trip to Kentucky and had so, so much fun.
+ France – Then in August 2012, I packed up all of my stuff and headed to France where I worked on my French, had a rough time, travelled a heck of a lot and met some wonderful people.
+ Prague – I headed to Prague (by bus!) for New Year’s and even though it had never been a city I’d been especially keen on seeing, I’m so glad I got the chance to go.
+ Sweden – Last summer, I spent 10 days in Sweden, watched football, packed a lot of travelling in those 10 days and swore I’d be back.
+ London – Sweden was followed by two weeks in London, a city I’d wanted to visit since I can remember and it was so much more than I thought it could be. Absolutely perfect.
+ Spain –  And now, Spain. Where I fumble with the language, spend time at the beach, have watched Real Madrid play a ridiculous amount of times, have memorized bus schedules and metro routes and drunk a ridiculous amount of coffee. And wine.

+  June was my best month for views/averages in 2013. In 2012, it was November and so far, 2014’s is January for views and March for averages.
Excluding November from last year, every month has had an increase from the same month the previous year.
My day with the best views was June 22, 2013, with 92 views. Working really hard to try and beat that!
