It’s been quite a year for us. Of course, our baby was born this year (our blog, which we now have a legit domain for, hooray!) over a pitcher of sangria, and we lived quite the life. We cavorted around New York City and tasted the best cup of coffee we’d ever had, we lounged on the beaches of Rio and ate our way through ethnic neighborhoods. A whole new world of nightlife exploration opened to us as we both finally turned the magical age of 21, and we finally started to get our butts into Chicago regularly to appreciate the culturally vibrant city right at our feet. We found ourselves let loose and living for months in some of the indisputable best cities in the world (Barcelona? Buenos Aires? New York City? We still can’t believe how lucky we were.) One of us even went from map illiterate to directions guru, and we both fell in love with Twitter. (Follow us!) We danced flamenco, samba and bhangra, visited countless candylands, brunched and shopped. We loved every second of it.
This coming year will see a new section added to the blog: City Guides, full of TKGO original content, multimedia and don’t-miss travel hot spots. This year also includes graduation, which means at some point we’ll have to figure out what to do with our lives — or at least the next year or so. Can’t we just do this forever?
Here’s to hoping 2010 is full of countless travels and discoveries, for us and you!
