a glimpse of 2016 through photos

This is a long overdue post, about 3 months late of my travel highlights from last year. 2016 was indeed full of adventures close and far from Singapore. I started off 2016 in Batam, Indonesia and then traveled to Hong Kong, Thailand, LA, NY, Iceland, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Melbourne throughout the year. I loved being able to go home for Christmas for the first time in 8 years since I’ve been overseas.

I’m also thankful for the friends that visited me in Singapore, the friends that traveled with me for different trips, and the friends that hosted me when I visited. Some of the highlights of my travels were conquering my fears. I was able to go rock climbing in Krabi, Thailand, get my open water scuba diving certification in Tioman, Malaysia, and summit Mt. Kinabalu. So many times, I wanted to give up during these times, but my friends kept encouraging me which made a huge difference.

Next stop on my travels: Jordan and Israel next week!

    You always have the most interesting perspective when taking photos! What a year it was! Can’t wait to see the view from your camera for the next travels.

    Of course you got some foodie shots in there. 🙂 Enjoy Jordan. Spring is such a wonderful time to visit, when all the hillsides are green. (If you visit any other time of the year every would tell you, “You should come back in the spring!”)
