With all the drama of planning a year away with the family, I almost forgot to look back at 2010!

And that would’ve been a shame because while the year ahead has us filled with excitement, anticipation and stress, looking at  pictures of family travel in 2010 makes me laugh and smile and daydream. One of my goals here at Globetrotting Mama is to encourage you to get out there and see the world – with your own family when you can and through mine when you can’t. This time of year gives us all the  rare opportunity to pause from planning “what’s next” and to focus instead on all that we’ve already experienced and take the time to appreciate it. I’m grateful that my 2010 has included readers like you.

Thank you for your support this year and all the best for 2011.

Here are a few personal highlights from 2010.
