One of the defining aspects of my 2018 was travel. There was travel for fun, travel for work, and travel for adventure. This year, I was fortunate enough to visit all seven continents, so in honour of my selfie habits over on my photo blog, here are some of my favourite selfies from this year, by continent.
South America was entirely for fun and adventure. My dad and I got to tourist our way around, before we visited Antarctica.
Leaving from Punta Arenas, we travelled with Aurora Expeditions south along the Antarctic Peninsula, crossing the Antarctic Circle, before returning north again. Visiting Antarctica was one of the most spectacular, other-worldly, and unforgettable experiences of my life. If you’ve ever considered it, I highly recommend taking the plunge! (Both figuratively and literally.
Work dominated my travel to North America, but there was some time for fun and selfies.
Thanks to a long layover, I just managed to visit Asia, dropping in for dinner with some friends in Hong Kong.
Europe was mostly work travel, which meant a distinct lack of selfies, sadly. This is clearly a shortcoming in my selfie taking habits that I need to work on next year.
Home was a place for fun, family, and a little bit of introducing my kids to the excitement of travelling!
(I wish I could fit into an economy seat like a three year old.)
Rounding out the year, my first trip to Africa! Just a little adventure to Kenya, seeing a few of the sights, but leaving plenty more for my next trip.
So, that’s been my year of travel. I flew 202,717km, visiting 28 cities in 12 different countries, maintaining an average speed of 23km/h over the year.
I’m looking forward to an exciting 2019, I hope your 2019 will be excellent, too. Happy New Year, everyone!
