Welcome to 2014!!

Too much time passed since my last post… but we are almost done with 2013.  So advanced Happy New Year to you all!!

December 30th marks 23 years since I first left India for US… time flies, but that date always will be a significant milestone for me.

So it is time for new year resolutions… mine is simple… I just want to be better than who I was in 2013… would keep reminding myself of that.

Here are a few highlights of 2013 (in random order) and see you all in 2014 with more regular posts.

  • In December, we went to Maui, Hawaii, our first trip ver to Hawaii and met up our friends Sally Anne,  Peter, Todd & Emma Gillman from Australia.  It was a blast.
  • Year 2013 was my busiest travel year ever – 170 K actual flying miles, 15 K more than last year.. and 2014 doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
  • In July my cousin Raja & Family visited us from Japan for a few days and we met after 15 years…
  • In May Lesli finally made her maiden voyage to California when we went to Bay area and visited my brother & family and met up my friend Subbu and Family visiting from India there..
  • In November we lost one of our close family friends Mike Hunter to Cancer… he was just a month shy of 50 years.  The toughest part of this loss was that I didn’t get a chance to say proper goodbye.  When we went to Omaha, I ended up getting a fever and had to say goodbye from outside of his house front door.  I got a late start on Movember… and grew my facial hair for 4 weeks and a let a lot of people know that it was for Mike.  If you haven’t seen the final photo, here is a link to it on FB.  Mike will be missed dearly…
  • Made 4 trips to India in 2013, during one of them in January met up with my friend Ruffin Beckwith who was on a world tour and spent some time visiting a few places in India. He posted his experiences in his blog, which actually inspired me to start writing also… You can read his entire experience at Ruffin on the Road.
  • We had our yearly trip to Puerto Vallarta in March, Our Montana road trip in September.. Glacier National Park is still my favorite place to visit… it is breath taking.
  • Can’t complain about work either… started Attune Digital with couple of long friends and colleagues Steve Wilen and Chris Tivey.   Currently working on opening a second development center in India in my hometown of Rajahmundry in March/April 2014.  It is going to be an exciting year ahead.

Hope every one is having a great holiday break. I have a lot to thankful for… health, family, friends and busy working schedule… what else can you ask for??
