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!
#4 is a powerful shot from exploring one of Cambodia’s floating villages. Hundreds of people live in boats & shacks built along a river that continuously floods the nearby forest. We brought snacks for kids like this who are lucky to go to school and even luckier to have a good meal everyday. It was a somber, eye-opening experience to see life in it’s rawest form and especially frustrating for me to be able to do so little to help kids like this.
