2012 Recap & New year wishes

2012 will soon be history. Fortunately or unfortunately the world didn't end as planned.  I’ve survived another 365 days on planet earth and this post is a quick recap of how 2012 went for me

Travel: Life was good on travel front- 4 international trips to 3 countries, 3 of them on work. Visited US, Singapore and Thailand this year, close to 30 days spent outside India. Read Singapore Posts, Thailand Posts here. On domestic front, only 1 domestic flight was taken- 2 visits to Bengaluru, one visit to Chikkamagalur, Munnar, Kadapa, 2 visits to Tumkur, a visit to Ford factory in Chennai and couple of visits to native place were my local travel this year. No visits to north India at all

Drove Tata Venture, Maruti WagonR, Toyota Etios Petrol, Toyota Innova G, Mahindra Scorpio 2005, Mahindra Xylo E4 and Tata Safari EX 4x4 this year, adding close to 6000 kms in total

Hardly any adventure activities this year.
Media and Writing: Got more mentions in print than last year. One Kannada article in Taranga about tiger temples, another kannada article in Udayavani about Pens, one mention in The Hindu NXG, two mentions in Vijaya Next weekly for giving correct answers to a detective quiz were my media mention this year.

Events: Not too many: Attended TEDxChennai, another event organized by Opera Software, gave a talk at Tumkur University and attended one more conference on Business Analysis

Blog: Closing towards 1000 posts on this blog. Average visitors per day has dipped a bit- not sure if it is due to Panda update or something else. This year saw highest no of posts- 190+

Misc: DSLR purchase and Thailand trip were the expensive spends this year. Yet to master the camera, but could take some good pics which wasn’t possible earlier.

Work and personal: Nothing great worth mentioning, status quo continues by and large.
Thanks for your patronage reading my posts. Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2013
