Plans for 2014

At a high level I'm looking to do the following.

Capitals

  • Bucharest @ Romania
  • Sofia @ Bulgaria (NEW)
  • New Delhi @ India (NEW)
  • Reykjavik @ Iceland (NEW)
  • Dakar @ Senegal (NEW)
  • Rabat @ Morocco (NEW)


Coasters
Estimate is around 80 but I'm happy if I go to 100, unhappy if I go higher; I really need to keep the hobby under control.





2013 Year in Review

I had no new countries visited this year but I did still manage to visit the following.

  • Ireland
  • Northern Ireland (twice)
  • Scotland (twice)
  • Wales
  • America (twice)
  • China
  • Italy


78 parks (there were more with no coasters)
17 fairs
5 Ridge Riders

and from those I was able to ride 156 new coasters. This is down on last year's 227 but is still too many so I'll be doing less next year. I did reach 1400 (Maximus @ Crealy's) and 1500 (Space Coaster @ M&D's). I only have around 70 to ride in 2014 if I'm to reach 1600.

More importantly some of my holidaying had nothing to do with coasters. I had a blast in January visiting Seattle for Twin Peak locations and the Cirque shows in Vegas, and I'm considering doing similar again next year.

The latest in the monkey series sees the monkey clan uproot and heading off to the desert, because that's a good climate for monkeys ...
