The Year in Cities

Interesting concept from Jason Kottke who’s listing all the cities he’s been to in 2008. My list (not counting places I just drove through or switched planes in) with asterixes for places I’d never been before:

  • Washington, DC.
  • New York, NY.
  • Los Angeles, CA.
  • Claremont, CA.*
  • Riverside, CA.
  • Tuscon, AZ*
  • Austin, TX.*
  • Miami, FL.
  • Chicago, IL.
  • Geneva, Switzerland.*
  • Helsinki, Finland.*
  • Kitty Hawk, NC.
  • Minneapolis, MN.*
  • Las Vegas, NV.*
  • Baltimore, MD.

All told, I think I did more traveling this year than I had in some time which at times got exhausting (those were three separate trips to Southern California) but overall I found incredibly fun and interesting. I’m still very eager to get to the Pacific Northwest at some point as I’ve never been to Portland, Seattle, or Vancouver and not to the Bay Area since I was a little kid. That or, you know, Asia.

UPDATE: And Cambridge, MA! Apologies to SR my host in that fine town.
