Flying over the Swiss Alps on my way to Beirut in December 2012

I have been lucky enough to travel to many interesting spots this year, from Northern Quebec to Jamaica, Chicago, New York, London and Beirut. Thank you all for being an integral part of this great adventure I have embarked on when I started writing this blog.

Below are a few Instagram shots of my travels with the hopes that this year brings you love, good health, great food and lots of traveling, far and near. I wish you all a very happy New Year!

I went to New York for a family celebration back in February but I still managed to get a few good eats in.

I went to Chicago for the first time this past May and I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful, vibrant city, rich in interesting architecture and with an outstanding food scene, that I chronicled in a few articles.

I spent a weekend in Toronto for a friend’s wedding in June. I didn’t have much time to eat out unfortunately but I did bring back some SOMA chocolates.

I fell in love with Vancouver during the 3 days I spent there in July. The weather cooperated in creating a magical city with mountains, beaches, beautiful vistas and delicious food. I never wrote about it but I will soon.

I decided to end the year in London with some good friends on the way back from Lebanon. I’m only here for a couple of days but they’re enough to reconnect, catch up and make plans for the next reunion… and that is happiness.
