The Best Photos of the Year: 22 Destinations on 5 Continents

As each year comes to an end, I always like to go through and select my best photos of the year. It gives me time to reflect on where we travelled to as well as live out those moments again. This year was a bit of a crazy one. We visited 20 countries on 5 continents and we were able to capture some stunning images. We also focussed a lot on video, so make sure to check out our Youtube channel for a more in depth look at what we did and where we travelled this year.

The Best Photos of the Year

There was a lot of crossing time zones as we visited both Australia and Asia twice this year. Next year will bring some changes as we focus more on travelling longer in some more remote destinations. You will have to stay tuned for details to come.

In the meantime, grab yourself a drink and take a look at some of the photos that we have had the pleasure of taking and sharing with you throughout the year.

Also, be sure to leave a comment at the end as to which was your favourite.

Thanks again for another wonderful year and we look forward to sharing our adventures with you in 2017!
