YEAR IN REVIEW: 2016


We don't travel as much as we used to here at The World on Wheels but we still keep ourselves on the road a healthy bit.



2016 started off with a big bang for us as we toured and zip-lined through the jungles of Costa Rica.



The water on the Pacific Coast isn't all that clear, and there are a few people out there trying to scam you, but the Riu Palace was magnificent as always and the tropical jungles proved a lot more accessible than we'd imagined.



A Sunset article that glanced over our area without really knowing anything about it inspired me to write about some of the charming and overlooked downtowns in Los Angeles County.



A new light rail line made all the way out to our neighborhood in the eastern San Gabriel Valley which motivated us to explore our region a bit more and, since we weren't driving, led to not one but two Gold Line Pub Crawls.



It also led to a post about what there was to do in the immediate vicinity of the new line.



Another article visited some of the most historic restaurants you can still dine in in our neck of the woods.



June found us at the northern edge of our state where I stumbled up one of my old elementary school teachers completely by accident after 45 years apart in Redding, California.



After that, we got to deal with Tim's stomach issues back in the Motherlode.

The big kahuna of the year, though, was our grand European tour.



Starting in Berlin...



...a quick lap through Poland...



...a couple of nights in Prague...



and ending up with a week in one of our favorite cities in the world, Munich.

Along with Tim regaling with tales of living with cerebral palsy, me with some caregiver chronicles, and a few new Cocktail Hours sprinkled in between, that was our year.

Can't wait to see what 2017 brings.
