We survived 2012

The world was suppose to end on 21 December 2012. On the morning of 22 December, I was happy to find that Muriel and I didn’t wake up to a world where the sky was falling or the earth opening up to swallow all of human life. But, like probably a lot of people, it made me think of how lucky we were to have had an exciting and interesting 2012. From skiing and hiking in Switzerland, peeking into Amsterdam’s nightlife, visiting the “motherland”, tasting tapas in Barcelona, to fine-dining in Paris, it was a good year – and hoping that 2013 will be the same or even better.

Here’s a few photos of how we ended 2012 (alive and well)…

By the way, if you’re thinking that the Mayan’s predicted our doom, it’s not true according to National Geographic. They did a bit of digging around and found that the Mayan prediction might have been slightly off… by thousands of years.
