2012 – My Year In Pictures!

A flashback gallery with one random image from the archives for each month of the past year. Just to set things straight, we only visited Japan, Laos and Cambodia in 2012. The rest are stories from our travels over the past few years.

I look forward to the pleasure of your company on another year of travel stories from across the world.

  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. A lovely set of travel photographs, Madhu. It must have been difficult selecting your favorites!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.
