My best travel photos of 2017

As everyone says goodbye to 2017, it’s time for me to look back and relive my best travel moments of the year. There is one resolution I draw from these memories: In 2018, I want to continue to travel an see places. Nothing is more valuable than memories and nothing creates better memories than travel.

Also, I want to say thank you for everyone who has read and subscribed and especially those who have commented on my posts. I love reading about your experiences, so if you own or know a great travel-themed blog, please point it out to me.

So, here are my photo memories. I didn’t pick those images because of their artistic value or technical perfection, but rather for the memories I connect with them. Happy new year to all of you!


2017 marked the first time I visited Poland. The sceneries in a popular seaside town outside of tourist season are what stays in mind, like this shot of birds enjoying the quiet on a foggy day.



Contrary to my usual habits, I went back to a place I have seen before when I travelled to Portugal’s Algarve coast. I could have chosen the usual ocean-beach-boat composition here, but I opted for the cemetery in Fuseta which impressed me with a special kind of beauty,



And finally, the realization that good memories often don’t need elaborate settings and diligent preparation. Here is the moment I realized my daughter has become a young lady. We set up this shot at the Dutch North Sea coast because she wanted a new profile pic for Instagram. Didn’t she just leave kindergarten the other day? Well, time is running. Looking forward to many new years to come!

    Saw your comment at Becky’s place and wondered how our paths haven’t crossed. I have a home in Tavira and we are in the process of selling up to move there full time. And my Dad was Polish, resulting in many visits, even after he died. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I love that cemetery.


    1. Rest assured, that wasn’t my last trip to the Algarve this year (didn’t blog about it yet). In fact, we always go to Tavira at least once on every vacation and that’s in order to buy salt right from the producer πŸ™‚ Thank you for commenting, maybe we will indeed cross paths soon!
