13 Favorite Photos From 2013

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to choose thirteen photos to highlight from over 8,000?

Yes, that is roughly how many photos I took traveling last year.

So, how did I choose?  I poured over every last picture to find one from each country.  The criteria was quite simple: make me feel like I’m back there.

I selected photographs that I hope will transport you to each place.  It’s my way of sharing the journey with you.

I’ll be bringing you many more photos now that I’ve finally sorted through them.

Without further adieu….are we there yet?

  1. That must have been tough to narrow down, but you’ve chosen some amazing photos!

    • Thank you, Rika! I had to narrow using some sort of criteria or I never could have picked! Glad you enjoyed them :)

  2. Wow Anne, seriously wow

    • Ha – that is the greatest reaction I could ask for!
      P.S. Dying to see some more of your travel photos!

  3. Beautiful! Sometimes traveling with a big camera can be a pain, but these photos remind me why it’s worth it!

    • Yes, Danielle! I get that question a lot — should I bring my DSLR or other bulky camera with me when traveling? I always answer…absolutely! It’s a non-negotiable for me :)
      Happy travels!
