Top 10 travel photos of 2018 ( 30/12/2018 )

The very last days of 2018 is here and it's about time to post this year's Top 10 travel photos. The destinations have been quite limited in numbers but I still managed to get at least three first ever visits to Albania, Lebanon and Lithuania. The highlight of those three was of course the vibrant city of Beirut with its food scene which has been on the bucket list for a very long time.

Apart from the three above, the true highlight this year though was of course the cherry blossom in Japan which is something out of the ordinary. Japan is totally different in all kind of ways and it really doesn't matter when you actually go because the experience will be awesome anyhow. At last, a weekend to New York is hard to beat even though I have been there quite many times now.

The upcoming travel year of 2019 will be probably not be as good as the ones that have passed, so far only a family trip to Gran Canaria booked and nothing more in the planning phase. I guess the time will tell...

Until then enjoy my Top 10 travel photos and a Happy New Year!
