2015 – The year of travel

I’d be lying if I said 2015 was just another year. I quit my job, sold everything I own, said goodbye to my friends and family and home of three and a half years and took off on an adventure with my boyfriend of one year.

We took a leap into the unknown and so far, we have been duly rewarded.

I couldn’t name a highlight of the year, or even settle on 12. We’ve had so many amazing experiences, seen so many wonders. So here’s a photo from each glorious month. Happy New Year x

Getting drenched on the Brazilian side of Igauzu Falls 

It was so difficult to stick to one photo per month. These barely scratch the surface of what has been achieved this year!

A big thanks to all the amazing people we’ve met on the road, friends and family back home whom we miss terribly and to you, for reading this. Having lovely people read my blog and leave comments makes my day. It makes my battles against lacklustre wifi connections totally worth it.

I hope 2016 is amazing for you. Now to go celebrate! It’s tradition in Brazil to ring in the New Year on the beach, wearing white and to jump over 7 waves for good luck. That’s where you’ll find me tonight.
