2013, it has been amazing and super eventful. Although, probably the year with the highest highs and the lowest lows in my life... At the end of each year I usually write a list of fun, crazy, sad, cool, memorable things and events that have happened during the year. It is a fun way to recap the past 365 days and it makes you realize how much you actually do in a year!
Here is my list of things for 2013, in chronological order (or at least the ones that are appropriate enough to post here )
I went to Turkey
... And experienced their coldest winter in 15 years. I slept with three layers of clothes, two down bed covers, a blanket, gloves, and a scarf - and was still freezing!

I went to Spain for three weeks
... And did my first 8c+, went on spontaneous adventures with Sasha DiGiulian and had lots of fun
