Around the world in 15 pictures

Its that time of year again. The time for all sorts of summaries. And I’ve realized I’ve been writing posts about our round-the-world trip, but that I’ve forgotten to summarize the experience. Now I could write about what we’ve learned, what were the best and the worse experiences, which places are the cheapest and which the most expensive, and so on and on. But I won’t. Not because I have nothing to tell, or because I am too lazy to write, but because I’ve got something much better – pictures. Thinking of it, I will tell you one thing that I’ve learned – you can never take too many pictures. This is how we spent 10 months travelling, in one picture per country.

  1. Wow, what a year! The visit to Easter Island alone is worthy of a lifetime.

    • To clear any possible misunderstandings – the trip itself was in 2010-2011, and I wrote the posts about it in 2012-2013. So this post has nothing to do with 2013, the end of the year was just an excuse to post some really cool photos.
