I’ve long believed travel to be one of the best instructors in life lessons. Whether positive or negative, different locations can leave a lasting impression and teach you something you might not have previously known, either about the destination or yourself. Here, in order of when I first visited them, are a few things I learned from the first ten countries I’ve traveled to.
Having been lucky enough to experience both, which did I prefer and how – if money is no obstacle for you – do you decide which to prioritize?
2016 was a roller coaster of an emotional year for me. Highs included being part of my closest cousin’s wedding, attending the wedding of one of my closest friends, and traveling to Scotland, a place I’ve longed to go for years, and my 3rd (of 5) top countries I want to see. The biggest low was a devastating discovery, but more on that below.
As a celebration of 2016 being finished, I want to share with you my 10 favorite pictures I took in 2016 and the meaning behind each. The pictures are in chronological order.
Occasionally, a place leaves you so breathless that you long to return, and driving around the Highlands in Scotland left me feeling exactly that way. Before our trip, I had a strong suspicion that would be the case, so I planned accordingly and brought along an HD Polaroid Cube camera to record parts of our drive.
Since I don’t travel full-time, I figured that instead of doing a monthly recap, I would recap each of my trips following the full posts. These recaps will contain highs, lows, logistics, funny anecdotes, pictures, etc. that I likely didn’t include in the full posts.
Without further ado, my trip to the UK!
