It has been a mad 18 months. Well actually I thought it had been relatively sedate, that was until I checked my phone’s history.

My mobile phone contract is due for renewal this month, so it was an opportune moment to study my phone with a look to backing up the data prior to getting a new device.

It is funny how the mind works. I can easily recall recent events, but anything beyond three months has been a bit of blur. I thought my travelling had slowed over the last 18 months. I hadn’t actually done that much recently, of course checking my phone revealed a different story.

The new Photo application on the phone captures geographic data inside every photo you take and my phone has revealed a rather interesting series of trips across three continents:

Looking forward to a sit down...

Nuts. It’s crazy, my phone as a better memory than me! Looking at the photos brought some great events back to life:

  • I became a father
  • I changed job
  • My son’s first birthday
  • My wife’s birthday
  • My birthday
  • Trips with my family to see relatives in New York and England
  • Giving my sister away!
  • We are now expecting another baby
  • Trip to Tokyo to see one of my best friends

After all that action I think I need a sit down…
