Happy New Year! Thank you so much for being a Skimbaco Lifestyle reader this year. We have loved sharing our stories, lives, ideas and tips with you this year. A lot of big things happened in 2014, we launched our e-magazine, Satu biked 2500 kilometres of Ireland’s coast, and our team participated in several international events, press trips and conferences on four continents. I took some time off this year to focus on our family’s move from Sweden to New York, and I am now excited to be back in the USA, although already miss Europe dearly. Thankfully, I have plenty of practice to know how easy it is to travel back and worth!
