101 Things in 1,001 Days (Part 2)

Yesterday I revealed part 1 of my Day Zero Project in which I completed 101 things in 1,001 days. In that post I discussed what I accomplished to further my personal development, and today I wanted to share my various travel adventures!

So let’s start local. A few items on my California bucket list were to go wine tasting in Napa…

I also visited several other cities in the U.S. for the first time, including Albuquerque, Seattle, and Denver for various business trips. Check out Seattle below!

But by far, my favorite travel location was Tokyo. My brother and I stayed with one of my best friends, who had been teaching English there at the time. I have been enamored with Japanese culture since I was young, so this trip was the chance of a lifetime.

For two weeks in June 2012, we explored all over the city. Here are a few highlights:
