In January we booked tickets to Kenya, and then I found out I was traveling to Israel for work so right away 2009 was set to be a bigger travel year than 2008. We went to Kenya and Tanzania for three weeks in March and April, then I went to Israel for two more weeks of travel. I spent some more time in the field in lovely small towns like Oyen. In September we went to Spain – for work and for play. I went on a quick work trip to LA and then on a two week tour of small towns along the AB-SK border.
