2017 Year Review in 27 Pictures

The year of 2017 has been a roller coaster. This year I have:

Gained 20 pounds (going back to America) , I also lost 16 of those pounds in my 3 months here in Europe. I have lived, and traveled, to 4 different continents. I have added 6 new countries to my list of visited which puts me at 28 total countries visited. I’ve had a scuba accident, which for the later half of the year has caused me to have unexplained vertigo. (Along with the 6 respiratory infections this year). I’ve been to two amazing weddings in Europe. Enjoyed the beauty of my homeland Puerto Rico before Hurricane Maria came and left the whole island in disarray. Made countless new friends. Swam with Manatees. Nearly Mastered Italian as a language. Reunited with family that I haven’t seen in years. Became an official blogger. Ate wayyyy too much pasta. And had 4 jobs.

Thanks 2017 for literally being the best, and worst, year of my life.

I hope you enjoy some of the highlights of my year in these 27 pictures. If you click on them, with the exception of the last few, it will link you to the blog entry about each of those pictures. See you next year!
