Twenty-Fourteen: A Year to Remember

Just as expected, another year has flown by. 2014 brought about big changes: a new country, a new job, new friends, new goals, a new language and, most importantly, a new sense of purpose.

Before starting my new life in Turkey, I was stuck in a rut. I had been hired for my dream job just two years earlier, but as the years pass, so did my enthusiasm for my work. Luckily, my husband, who has not traveled as much as I have but is just as passionate about it, was onboard when I suggested a lifestyle change. Since that epic decision, we’ve been fortunate enough to share this adventure together. Here is our 2014 story in pictures:
