2014 was my most traveled year yet. I had the good fortune to bring in the New Year in the Philippines before returning to my job in South Korea. Summer vacation was spent backpacking Vietnam and Chuseok (Korean thanksgiving) brought me to Japan. I ventured to Shanghai before heading back to America for the end of the year holidays and all along these crazy adventures my camera followed me. Tens of thousands of pictures were narrowed down to roughly 30 finalists before I selected my top 10 travel photos of 2014!
#2 shows the picturesque sunsets of Boracay in the Philippines. Boracay is a magical island full of tuktuks & tourists. Its where Filipinos go on vacation and I was fortunate enough to meet some locals through my good friends Josh & Christine. We had a blast relaxing on White Beach with some of the most elaborate natural colors on Earth and I was lucky enough to capture this moment in the first days of 2014. I love this photo so much that I commissioned my artist friend & future roommate, Brian, to paint it for me and can’t wait to hang it in the new apartment! As an aside I enjoyed watching my watermark evolve throughout the year and am looking at this old one has inspired me to come up with another new one for 2015.
I think its time I add to my travel bucket list. Where is your favorite sunset?
Stay tuned for #1!
