Another year has come and gone and in soppy melodramatic fashion, it's time to look back on all we've done and didn't do. Instead of focusing on love or lack there of or personal growth, I've look back through the magic of film and video on all the places and things I saw in 2007.

The following is a photo montage video of the travels, festivals, and events I experienced in 2007.

I've got photos of sumo, ninja, geisha, samurai, medieval Italian towns, German castles, a slew of Japanese festivals, and one good ole dog.

The song is called "Only Once" which I think appropiate for life and traveling. You've only got one life - go somewhere and do something.

A native Tennesseean, David M. Weber is currently at the grammatical grindstone cranking out gerunds, dangling modifiers and perfecting tenses as an English teacher in Japan. In his travels, he has hiked the Inca Trail, been mugged in Mexico City, broke his leg in Switzerland, attempted to bike through Mexico and failed, climbed Pyramids in Egypt and Mexico, drank great quantities of beer at Oktoberfest and gambled at Monte Carlo.
