First, sorry for dropping the ball. I am not still in Morocco. After my last post in September, I traveled with my family for three weeks to London, Rome, Athens, Malta, and Israel, before coming back to Seattle and returning to work.

It is time to get back to the blog, we’ve still got to catch up on those places and a quick but awesome weekend in Mexico city, but for now, fast forward to Christmas Eve.
I am nearing the final stretch. In real time, I’ve made it to Rome from South America, spent a week in Morocco, headed to London to find my parents, back to Rome to get on a cruise with the family, spent three days in Israel and a day in Santorini, and today I am in Kusadasi, Turkey. In exactly a week I will be done and back to real life.
So how well did I do on my goals, and what do I have left to do in my final few days?
