The Everyday Minimalist 2011 in Review

2010 GROWTH IN REVIEW

This is my third year blogging but it feels like I just started it 6 months ago!

My goal this year was basically to chill out, relax and travel. I did all of the above but I am fully recharged and ready to go!

As we head into the new year, it never hurts to look back on the past!

Travel has always been a big part of my life, not to mention my budget!

To put things into perspective, I spend about $5000 a year traveling on average.

In 2011, I spent close to $20,000, taking about 80% of the year to just travel and NOT WORK. 🙂

So I spent an hour or two making this collage of all the cities I’ve visited so far (since 2011).

A good chunk of the cities on there were newly visited in just 2011 alone:

  • Beijing, China
  • Shanghai, China
  • Hong Kong
  • Macau
  • Salamanca, Spain
  • Madrid, Spain
  • Evora, Portugal

Cities that weren’t included:

  • Cities I’ve never spent actual time in — airports, stopovers and the like
  • Smaller-medium-sized cities in countries — Findlay, OH for instance
  • SHOOT! I forgot Philadelphia, PA and Atlanta, GA — I spent a month in each 😛
  • ..and Houston, TX and Austin TX 🙂

Here they are in Polaroid format:

I'm a 20-something year old girl who lived out of a single suitcase in 2007, and now I'm living with less, but only with the best. You don't have to get rid of everything to become a minimalist! Minimalism can help simplify and organize your life, career, & physical surroundings. You can read more about me as a minimalist.
