Here we are at the end of another year, and what a year it was! Our 2013 goal of more travel was certainly achieved and it was a resolution we didn’t mind keeping! We wrote about just some of those wonderful travel experiences here, and reflecting back we thought we’d take a quick look at some of our most popular blogs to date. Here is a look at some of the highlights of 2013.

10. Ship Wrecks of the Great Lakes
At number ten, we have ship wrecks of the Great Lakes. These fascinating dive sites have become legend and the mystery surrounding these sunken relics has only increased with time. This was one of our first guest posts, submitted by Rutger Thole at Book Your Dive. Incredibly, it has been estimated that over the centuries, up to 25,000 ships have gone down in the deep waters of these beautiful but unforgiving waterways.

9. Civil Rights Museum & Martin Luther King – Memphis, Tennessee
Our trip to Memphis, Tennessee last May comes in at number nine. One of the most fascinating museums I’ve had the privilege of touring, The Civil Rights Museum is both thought provoking and illuminating. Its haunting grounds and striking exhibits take visitors on a journey back in time to an April day in 1968 that ends with the tragic assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
