2017 Travel Highlights In Pictures

Year 2017 is ending very soon and I just can’t let it passed by without appreciating all the beautiful things I have received. The entire year had its ups and downs but I am still very thankful for all the love I got from friends and families alike.

Happy and Grateful

Just like the previous years I created blog post as a roundup of my travels. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not that I’m bragging about it. I just wanted to document my travels. In this way I could use it for future reference as well as to remind myself of where I’ve been to, what I did and what are the things I already ticked off my bucket list.

There are so much stories to blog about during our summer travels this year. Unfortunately, I just can’t write it all in one sitting. But I’ll try my best to do it one blog at a time. It is something for you guys to look forward to in 2018. For now let me share to you the highlights of our travels this year.

2017 has been a good year as far as travel is concerned. Although there were hits and missed but still it is more of a hit than a miss. I don’t intend to linger on those unfortunate events that happened, rather I am thankful for all the amazing travel moments Derick and I experienced this year. Cheers to more travels in 2018!
