BEST OF 2015

Half a year has already gone by, how crazy is that? I visited some new countries and cities this year & so far my Travel Adventures have been awesome! At the moment I have no new travel plans set just yet, as I am now in a money making mode. I will definitely take one or two small trips before the end of the year, then one in January for my birthday again as well as April and then Stockholm in July 2016 for TBEX Europe. The next new cities I plan to visit are: Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Lisbon & Stockholm. Let’s get to the list of Favorites for 2015 – Highlight the photo for further information I am not including Cyprus on the list because I am making a separate Best Of Cyprus Post.
