The time flies by so fast, it’s hard to believe so much has happened during the last year!
Looks like it’s time for yet another upshot post?
I’ll start with the most significant one: last July the most special woman has become my wife, which we then celebrated in Cannes in September.
During 2019 I have also:
- Worked 1836 hours as a freelancer;
- Discovered and learned Hugo, reimplemented this blog and moved to Cloudinary for media storage;
- Written 186 posts in Russian, 59 in English (this one included), and 9 in Dutch, as well as 25 Glossary terms;
- Run 813 km on 44 occasions (including one half marathon).
The rest will be described in the chronological order.
Last January a group of my NS colleagues has spent four days skiing and snowboarding in Jochberg, Austria:
In February we shortly visited Russia.
In March—the Efteling attraction park.
April was quite eventful. First, we’ve conquered the Iron Throne:
Then we’ve seen Arena performing at De Boerderij:
After that we’ve spent a few days in the magnificent Cochem on the Moselle river, Germany:
And, finally, 22 April I’ve run the De Halve van De Haar half marathon in the De Haar’s castle park:
Last May we’ve spent an unforgettable week in Rome and we seem to have visited every corner of it. Oh prosciutto!
June was scorching in Krakow, the most beautiful city in Poland. There was cold beer to our rescue.
Well, July is already mentioned.
August: Russia again, the rainy Saint Petersburg.
And a bit of Amsterdam.
Also I’d finally made up my mind, reimplemented yktoo.com as a static website and started to blog regularly.
Kanns in Cannes. A celebration of our wedding in the most magical place.
Also Monaco and Nice.
October—Saint Petersburg again.
Last but not least, in December we’ve received presents from Sinterklaas:
There was the Amsterdam Light Festival:
I wish all my readers a happy and a healthy 2020!
Be strong, be persistent, pursue your dreams and let the Force be with you!
