My Year in Cities, 2008

Making it’s now annual appearance, here’s a roughly chronological list of the places that I visited during the past year.

  • Toronto, ON, Canada*
  • Mississauga, ON, Canada*
  • Brockville, ON, Canada*
  • Montreal, PQ, Canada*
  • Ottawa, ON, Canada
  • Burlington, ON, Canada*
  • Waterdown, ON, Canada
  • Belfast, Northern Ireland*
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Glasgow, Scotland

One or more nights were spent in each of the cities listed. Places with an * were visited multiple times on non-consecutive nights. Not quite as many place as last year, but it’s a reasonable list overall.

My media consumption in 2007

2007 A Year in Lists

After reading Nicholas Felton’s annual report last year, I decided to keep track of a few things myself. We already saw the list of visited cities pop-up, now it’s time for more. So, without further ado, I present: 2007 A Year in Lists.

I kept track of a number of different things, but decided to limit this presentation to my mass media consumption (minus television). My book list doesn’t include non-fiction, because most of my readings were for school and I might not have necessarily read the whole book. My movie viewing took a slight hit during my travels in October and November, but I still managed to view a decent number over the year.

It was quickly approaching that point in the new year, where you can no longer post recaps, etc. from the previous year, so it needed to get out the door. The lists comprise 16 books, 52 movies and my 15 top artists for the year.

  • Brockville, ON, Canada*
  • London, England*
  • Reading, England*
  • Rome, Italy*
  • Florence, Italy

  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Geneva, Switzerland*
  • Grenoble, France

  • Bruges, Belgium
  • Toronto, ON, Canada*

One or more nights were spent in each of the cities listed. Places with an * were visited multiple times on non-consecutive nights. The majority of my time was divided between London and Reading, where Alanah and I were studying respectively. There were also a number of other places that I visited on day trips, including: Ottawa, Winchester, Salisbury, Bray and Ypres. The post idea was gratuitously stolen from kottke.
