The year that’s been

2015 is over and 2016 has just begon.

The past year has let us all over the world again.
It started out, at home, in England, and in the months after guided us through India, Nepal, Singapore, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), Sri Lanka and Malta.

We saw ancient bridges made of steel and wood, temples old and new, medieval cities and modern high rises. We travelled by plane, train, automobile and narrow boats. We celebrated New Year in April, were baked at 40 degrees in the dust and washed by the monsoon.

Let’s see what 2016 has to bring.
