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!
#7 takes us back to South Korea’s east coast after a gruelling hike in Seoraksan National Park on Buddha’s Birthday. Hajodae Beach makes for an excellent stop during the day and I just got lucky when Ronda and I took a sunset walk along the beach!
Honorable Mention #1 – This year I had 4 photos that were too good not to highlight but didn’t make my top 10. This one is from Dinosaur Ridge in Seoraksan National Park. My Korean adventure has brought me to a half dozen national parks and countless mountains. The hiking here is beautiful but altogether too crowded, something I hope this picture captures.
