That is the sound of another year passing.

Once again, it has been a blast! Too little time; too many wonderful places to visit.

Fifty-two weeks of stories and pictures from 15 countries on five continents: landscapes from walks and scenic road trips; portraits of local people in village markets and participants and performers at music festivals; explorations of pre and early Christian sites and Hindu and Bhuddhist architecture preserved in UNESCO sites; and encounters with animals in zoos, preserves and in the wild …

For the first time, I even managed to dig into the archives; inspired by friends’ travels, I revisited some older photos from Bhutan and Patagonia.

International visitors gave us a good excuse to explore close to home.

We thought we’d be slowing down by now, and we are – but I am still travelling and photographing more than I can post weekly. I feel like I will never catch up with the processing and organising – even though there are days I leave the cameras at home and rely upon my iPhone. (Check out my regular Instagram posts.)

As always – it has been a great pleasure having you along for the ride. I love it when you comment, whether on the blog itself, in person, via email, or otherwise.

Even when you don’t comment, Google Stats tell me you are there.

Thanks to you all.:-)

I’m looking forward to seeing what the next year will bring us.

I hope you will join me.:-)
