This year turned out to have quite a bit more travel than I had originally thought I would.

In February I went off to Melbourne, Florida for some refresher training on a system that we use at work. I spent about 3 glorious days in the city of Melbourne.

I love nothing more than spending time at the airport just watching the planes coming and going. My heart especially goes wild when a plane that is not associated with Delta Air Lines lands at our airport. Seen here is one of our two daily flights from Paris. This one, operated by Air France -- generally operated by an Airbus A340-300 is operated today with an an Airbus A330-200 -- is seen landing here. The second flight, operated by Delta Air Lines.

In the middle of the Black Hills of South Dakota lies one of the greatest US treasures: Mount Rushmore. Carved between the years of 1927 and 1941 by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln. Mount Rushmore features 60 foot high sculptures of four former US Presidents: George Washington (1732-1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) and Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865).

My very first time traveling with a digital camera was in 2004. In those days you didn't have huge memory cards and thus the number of photos taken was significantly lower. One of the existing photos that I have is of the Festung in Salzburg. A beautiful sight.

One of the most exciting reasons for going to Africa was for the chance to catch a glimpse of an elephant in the wild. Chobe National Park offers the visitor just that. Hundreds upon hundreds of elephants. This was one of the very first elephants I saw in the wild.
