Recap of my travels in 2016

Just to refresh my ailing memory, let me admire my Facebook pictures to get a sense of the places that I’ve been in 2016.

Alright. Here it goes…

21 European Cities in 2 months plus…

Maldives, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.

And I had a major 3 weeks adventure in China which I will blog about in future.

Most of the time, I don’t plan my trip. I prefer it to be raw and spontaneous. And yes. I travel alone most of the time. It makes things less complicated…but that being said, I tend to ‘pick up’ friends along the way.

Here’s my top 3 favorite photos from these countries. I hope you like them too!
