2007 was a pretty full year for Countrybagging!
I managed to do a number of 'local' bags such as the Isle of Man and the Isles of Scilly, even if there is some debate as to the validity of the Isles of Scilly.
Of course the big event of 2007 was another around the world trip, the highlights being India, Easter Island, Chile and Peru.
A weird by-product of that around the world trip was that I managed to see a number of the candidates for the New7Wonders (www.new7wonders.com/) competition
One of the first Lonely Planet's I saw was a Western Europe copy back in 1996, it had a fabulous photo of Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany on the front cover. Neuschwanstein Castle was also a finalist in the New7Wonders competition, so I decided to head off and have a look.
So, what's in store for 2008?
Well, I've always got plans! There is a big trip coming up that would get me eleven new countries in one go, and that would get me very close to the magic 90 country mark! Also if plans go well then I'll visit a country that only a handful of people have visited.
