2015 brought me good fortune and even greater photos. My camera followed me from New Years Eve with my family in New Jersey then back to Korea before enjoying Lunar New Year in Thailand and short stint in Taiwan for Buddha’s Birthday. Then we went up a few Korean mountains and swam in stunning Korean islands before heading back to Thailand and then finally Cambodia before settling home in Korea. I’ve made amazing new friends, met the most wonderful woman and had countless adventures with what seemed like an endless hard drive full of photos. Sifting through was no easy task and at first glance I had over 200 favorites! To see them all find me on Instagram @LiveTravelTeach but I guess I should just cut to the chase cause here at my top 10 travel photos of 2015
My favorite photo from 2015 hails from Monkey Beach on Koh Phi Phi, Thailand. Now I’ll admit that I’m partial to these little buggers but plenty of travelers hate monkeys. They steal food and bags from tourists all the time and can even carry diseases. I got incredibly lucky with this shot as a troop of these Long-Tailed Macaques as they attacked other tourists but just screamed at me. I guess I understand the laws of nature better than others since I gave them space and they never actually tried to attack me. Well anyway monkeys are one of my favorite animals so its easy to see how this capture made it to #1!
