I’m in the process of plotting out my travel schedule for the new year (if I don’t have at least one trip in the works, I feel aimless and empty), and between all the travel porn viewing and frantic airfare price-checking, I’ve also been reminiscing about the trips I took over the last year. When I think back on the best travel moments, it’s definitely a toss-up between swimming with sea turtles in Maui (and learning a few life lessons in the process), and dancing to an amazing bluegrass jam band in a dive bar in Nashville: two very different experiences that I’ll never forget. After the jump, check out the highlights from other Frisky staffers’ 2012 travels,and please share your own in the comments! Did you take any major trips this past year?

#6. Tour the Sewers of Paris, Cost: $3 Per Day
Paris isn’t all poodles and Eiffel Towers, and it goes without saying that there’s more to see than the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. In fact, after taking a dump in one of the city’s fine restrooms, you may find yourself saying, “Man, I wish I could see the part of Paris where my shit goes.” You’re in luck, you sick bastard, because you can actually pay to take a tour of the Paris Sewer System.
