Happy new year 2014 !
We always thought it was New Zealand first and Hawaii last to usher in the new year. And it kinda sorta is in terms of the big inhabited places. The new year timings tell us that its actually Samoa first and American Samoa last. They’re only 80km apart, but in December 2011, Samoa shifted it’s time zone for economic reasons. So now, you can take a one-hour flight and celebrate new year first and last in the world. How’s that for a bit of new year time travel trivia?
We’re going to leave you with this picture of a balloon flight over Cappadocia in Turkey. We like how it symbolises the far horizons we’re going to conquer. We’d better get cracking on the new year resolutions then.

Happy New Year!
Happy new year to you too. Looking forward to following your 2014 adventures, big & small.
Ah, that’d have to be a trip on the bucket list? Many happies 🙂
It’s not one that’s currently on the bucket list. Truthfully, we never quite know what’s going to take our fancy. And the best times are often when we find the special in the ordinary. Hope you’re having a good start to the year.
I’m with you guys on making it up as you go along and finding the special in the ordinary! Magic. Looking forward to see where your next journey takes you.
