Following a long tradition of this blog, dating back to 2006 (and continued in 200720082009 201020112012, and 2013)  here is my year 2014 seen through the cities I've been to, mostly for work, occasionally for vacation.

The rule is: Places I've visited in 2014 for at least one night (plus some relevant daily trips), in chronological order . At times, the reason for the trip is listed. In bold are cities I've been to for the first time.
