Happy New Year and Happy Travels!

| tralev | life |

I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the progress that I have made in 2016. I officially kicked off the capitals project with my trip to Sacramento in early October. Since then, I have made steady progress by visiting Carson City in late October, Salt Lake City in late November, and I just returned from a trip to Frankfort. I started this project to figure out what all the fuss was about in various state capitals and so far I have not been disappointed. Each city that I have visited has been better than the last one and I am consistently surprised and inspired by the people, places, and things that I see.

Unsurprisingly, most of my referral traffic has come from Twitter (apologizes to all of my followers).

Looking ahead to 2017

I am going to start the year off right by knocking out one capital the first week of 2017. I am planning on going to Austin, TX next week and I can’t wait! I have not yet decided where else I am going to go this year, but the plan remains to visit one capital per month.

I am looking forward to what is in store for 2017. Wishing everyone a very happy New Year!
