As the end of the year is approaching, it’s time for reflections. And as we reflect on our year, we remember all the exciting and amazing adventures we had – and collect all the beautiful pictures that remind us of those adventures. So here comes our best photos of 2019.
So 2019 was a special year. I know, I know, it applies to every year. But this time we really mean it. Our baby boy has arrived. We became parents. (And we became a family travel blog, naturally.) It brought lots of joy and challenges. As for travel and photography, it meant that we had less and shorter trips this year. It challenged us to notice the interesting and beautiful places that are close to us. Well, here’s what we have for you from 2019:
