Thank You!

I sincerely appreciate every single read, share, like, comment, and contest entry that this blog receives. I do not have a team of writers although I do have wonderful friends like Michelle Kim and John Biehler who help me out with events every few months so I have to thank them for their support.

I just can’t believe I’ve kept this “blog thing” going for 10 years now. I am honoured to be able to have this dream job and to write about the best city on earth each and every day. Thank you for reading and for being so generous with your time — and online votes!
