Things I Went to the TOP of in 2014

I previously did a post of things I went to the top of in 2013 because I had spent a great deal of time traveling that year. I never did a list for 2014, but since I have lots of free time on my hands (oh the joys of life as an expat) and love list making I made my 2014 list. Better late than never. This list forced me to be a bit creative with less literal climbing to the tops of things.

Number one, hands down, thing I went to the top of in 2014 was the academic ladder because I completed, defended, and was granted my PhD. A photo of the more famous buildings on campus.

I posted this last time, but I am pretty sure I went there after the new year in 2014.
