2016 was a really amazing year for me and I’ve learnt so much about my life here in the US and now I am way better with day to day tasks. 🙂 You live, you learn. I just wanted to share some amazing moments from 2016 and kind of sum it up with this collection of pictures from my Instagram.

I’ll insert them in chronological order.

My very good friend visited me here in California from Europe and we were exploring SoCal wineries. 🙂

On the way back we took a quick stop in San Francisco.

We tried to go to San Jacinto again but the wait was 4 hours so we just spent the day in Palm Springs.

Just before New Years we spent two days in San Diego and it was a blast!

2016 went by so fast and I still can’t believe its over. I feel very optimistic for 2017 and can’t want to see what the future holds for me.
