Thank you for keeping my dreams alive as a “citizen of the world” …
Since I stopped working for Swissair as senior cabin crew, I miss a lot my traveling!

My pleasure entirely 🙂
A wonderful year ahead to you too dear Claudine!
Great shots, really really a review worth… 🙂
Aw, thanks Ledrake 🙂
What a fantastic year of travel you’ve had Madhu. Jealous?…….just a little bit!
Don’t be 🙂 Only Japan and Laos (also Cambodia, but haven’t posted about it yet) are from this year. The rest are stories from past travels.
Looks like an exciting year! Happy travels for 2013!
Thank you and to you too Jodi….good luck with the ’round the world’ trip planning 🙂

Thank you. I didn’t visit all these places in the past year! This is a review of my posts from 2012 🙂
Great pictures. I look forward to traveling with you in pictures during this year too. 🙂
Thank you David! Look forward to having you along for the ride 🙂
Wow, Madhu! You have traveled from one end of the earth to the other in the past year. Amazing pictures. And I’m sure many happy memories. 🙂
Oh no no Cathy! These are from my posts from the past year, that cover travel from years past 🙂 Have amended my post to dispel confusion.
Oh! It always seems to me that you are traveling every minute of every day!! 🙂 I keep thinking, that lucky Madhu!! Anyway, I’m glad to share in your travels whenever you took them!! 🙂
Great photos, great year of travels. Thanks for taking us to so many places.

Great photo flashback!!
This has to be the most amazing gallery of photos I have seen. Thanks Madhu for allowing me to be an armchair traveler with you this past year. 🙂
Lovely, Madhu! Happy new year!
Wonderful and rich choice of photos – my favorites is the mural, little boy and 2 girls.
I want to ask you how you manage to arrange your photos like that – I would like to do mine year too, but not until March.
Fab. post review for the year of 2012! I recall many of great stories you have shared. Thank you, Madhu!
Great selection of photos for the year Madhu. Always enjoy traveling with you.
I haven’t seen January, it’s fabulous, is there a post this comes from?
Yes Gilly, from a post of the same name about the 5000 year old Solar barge in the museum in Giza.
That’s my favourite shot too, Madhu. Thank you for being such a warm and generous traveller.
What a fantastic collection of photo, and great memories also, I will be looking forward to reading more in this brand New Year. 🙂
What a glorious year it was … is there a chance for this one to be even better? My favourites are La Boca y Iguaco 🙂 It felt good to see this retrospective again…. Have a super year Madhu!
A wonderful review of an amazing year, Madhu. It’s always a treat. I look forward to another year of great adventures–so glad you let us tag along with you! Happy New Year!
And I look forward to more stunning photos from your travels, Madhu.
You had quite a year! Happy New Year!
This is a wonderful collection. I have really enjoyed visiting your blog in 2012 and look forward to more wonderful photography in 2013. Blessings to you.
What a year of blogging Madhu! I’ve enjoyed reading your stories andd seeing the photos from all corners of the globe – it’s certainly a big inspiration to save and travel more! Love the storytelling too, especially all the historical tidbits. 😀 Happy New Year Madhu, and may you have many more adventures in the coming months!
I wasn’t going to do this, but I saw a couple of good selections elsewhere (before I saw yours I mean) so I did it in the end. I didn’t pick any ‘special’ photos – just dipped randomly into photo files each month, so some had been published before and others hadn’t. It was fun to do.
I like the cloister one in your selection. It oozes peace and tranquility – and timelessness.
You had quite the whirlwind year there with lots of travel. 🙂
Glad to reconnect with you this year and many thanks for the blog support.

These are all very lovely Madhu!
All the best for a happy and creative 2013 to you and yours!
A lovely set of travel photographs, Madhu. It must have been difficult selecting your favorites!
Exotic pictures spanning across the globe. I would love to add a quote by Saint Augustine ~ “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page”.
Cheers to you Madhu for another eventful and picturesque New Year.
There’s always delight every time I visit your blog, Madhu. Always delight, and that delight comes from the purity of your soul. 🙂
Happy New Year to you, may you start 2013 with joy and happiness. 🙂
