I crossed a couple items off of my bucket list, fell in love with some new places I'd discovered (but, thankfully, no people), and fell into a hole in the floor.
I rode some trains, and I paid my respects to some dead planes.
I have my own favorite moments of the year, but as is my annual tradition, here follows what brought the most eyeballs to this site. (They're not necessarily the ones that people liked the most; they're just the ones that the most people looked at.)
It pleases me to no end that one of the most-read posts of mine was a personal story—a bit of a memoir that went back almost 20 years and came full circle this year.
After all, not all regrets have something to do with a particular place, and avoiding regret isn't always about crossing something off a list.
