Happy 2011! Sure, this post is a day late, but unlike some previous Decembers, 2010's December had two fun weeks of traveling in Asia- not only just 2000+ pictures taken and lots of places visited, but lots of things learned as well. Guess where I took this picture from! Click on the photo for the answer. :)
I hope everyone has had a great 2010 and I hope that 2011 will be an even better year moving forward. 2010 saw some differences in the blog compared to 2009/2008, mainly an increase in traffic during the summer months and a new record in daily visits! (378) I can see now that there are some patterns: popular places and expensive places are quite well liked by visitors on this site.
Some things do not change however. The year came to a end just as quickly as before, maybe even quicker. And my schedule has been becoming busier and busier, allowing me less time to write posts. I really appreciate your continuing readership in the past year, especially since during the past months I have written less posts than normal. Although my schedule probably will not allow me to write a lot for now, I hope that in the later months I can write more posts. Quality over quantity! I will definitely try to continue with my detailed postings; they just might not come through as quickly as I wish them to. You will see plenty of more interesting posts now, as I have found plenty of fun places to talk about during my trip! Less so on places around California- and the reason for that is that lots of restaurants that I have tried out are mediocre and thus I do not have much enthusiasm to write about them (and you probably wouldn't want to hear my comments in that case). Please suggest places for me to go to! I need better restaurants to talk about.
Now, some interesting figures on the website, in the case of most visited posts:
-Hotel reviews: Bellagio Review 2010: Penthouse Suite on the 35th Floor (Popular and expensive!)
-Restaurants: The Buffet (Bellagio)- Las Vegas (Popular definitely!)
-Products: Trader Joe's Nonfat Plain Frozen Yogurt (Just like last year- or is it that Trader Joe's products are well liked?)

After a post on UCLA (the photos have been posted on Flickr for weeks now) I'll transfer to my Asia trip. There's quite a lot to talk about! Two hotel reviews, two flights, and lots of other things in between.
Again, wishing you a happy and prosperous 2011!
