2013 ~ Year In Review
2013 afforded me a cornucopia of wondrous adventures around the globe.
So I invite you to take yet one more journey with me this year, this time as I reflect on the travel highlights of 2013 by recapturing them via my photography. There were many highlights, and I do want to stress traveling was not exclusive to those highlights, but capturing these moments of travel are the easiest to showcase.
What I have learned is…
Travel is personal.
Places I’ve journeyed to reflected back to me what I was feeling at that moment.
Growth comes from hard lessons.
And there are certain places in time you feel like you’ve been searching for your entire life but then, only realize once you’ve arrived, that what you’ve been searching for has been within you the entire time.
I warn you now; One can fit in A LOT in 12 months – This is a HUGE post
So without further ado…
Will always hold such a special place in my heart.
I haven’t posted a lot from Istanbul, not because there isn’t much to showcase, quite the contrary I think there is TOO MUCH to showcase. But what every single time without fail stands out to me, is the people of Turkey – Nowhere will one find folks more welcoming, funny, and generous.
I was invited to a birthday party in Dubai so this was a short trip that was kind of done all at night…
With a lot of celebrating…
… and making faces
…and with a lot of laughter
I went home for a visit.
This time I was able to see the light of day.
I’ve included more photos from Jordan in this post than from any other trip. I realize I haven’t even come close to posting what I experienced and saw in Jordan. And perhaps that is precisely why – it was simply so overwhelming. My hope is that you can get a sense of the sheer magnitude of this tiny country via these photos.
While Saudi Arabia has been my base these last twenty months, I know I haven’t nearly showcased it enough. Perhaps, at a later date, in a different forum. But for now, I give you these shots of the Arabian desert.
Really. What is there to say about Paris and about France that has not been said before?
The pictures speak for themselves…
A quick trip back to my beloved city.
Home for my favorite Holiday, Thanksgiving.
A warm, heartfelt Thank You to everyone who has come along and followed me on this ride.
I promise to even bring it up a slight notch in 2014.
