Editor's note: Adam Groffman has without doubt caught
the travel bug. In 2009 he quit his Graphic Design job in

After spending New
Year's Eve in Berlin, I'm now in Israel - my first trip of
2013! I'm determined to travel more this year than the last.
And for me: half the fun of travel is visiting places and
