I can’t believe we are at the end of 2017. I’m sure everyone says this but I feel like this year has flown by. As is tradition on this blog, at the end of the year I like to look back at the places I visited and things I achieved throughout the year.

At the end of each year I like to do a re-cap post of my travel and personal highlights from the year (you can check out my 2015, 2014 and 2013 posts if you’re interested). This year I’ve decided to do a slightly different format and have come up with 16 highlights from 2016, mostly in chronological order.

I try to write one of these posts every year as I really enjoy looking back on the things I’ve done. Biggest personal achievements On the first day of January 2015, I skied my first ever black run!..

At first I wasn’t sure if I would write this post, as I felt like I cut back on traveling a little this year (mostly to do with the amount of time and money I had to invest in getting a new UK visa). But as I started looking back on blog posts and travel photos I was pleasantly surprised to see that I’d still managed to take quite a few trips...

January Rang in the New Year in Russia! Certainly an interesting place to visit. Seeing St Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square was definitely a highlight, although not at all what I was expecting on the inside! January also saw a weekend trip to Barcelona that fell on Australia Day. After a brief visit in July 2012, it was good to get a chance to go back and experience this city properly...
