It's already 2011 in Istanbul, and as I await the stroke of midnight here, in California, I can't help but look back on the year that was so full of adventure and wonderful things. I'm thankful that I was able to live out so many of my childhood dreams in 2010— climbing up to the Parthenon, strolling through Barcelona, drinking yak butter tea in Nepal and standing in front of the mighty Himalaya.
So 2011, what do you have in store? I look upon you with hopeful eyes and a pounding heart. It is my goal to make every dream of mine a reality. My dear readers, I wish you the happiest of new years. May your 2011 be full of love, laughter, light and adventure. May you live your dreams.
Mutlu Yıllar! Happy New Year!
