And there we have it, my Grand Provincial Tour so far, in photos taken from January to December. Now I'm metaphorically back at the station waiting for the next train, the first of 2014, to take me to some underrated and slagged-off provincial destination which will turn out to have all sorts of gems and details and surprises because, after all, it is where people live and enjoy living, and all those residents can't be completely wrong to be proud of their home town.
Thank you for reading in 2013. It's a great pleasure to blog, but even an even greater one to be read. I'm looking forward to 2014, and can't quite believe this will be my tenth year of writing a blog. But I wouldn't be here without you. Happy New Year and all the best for 2014.
