12 months, 12 photos

in London this year

This has been a very difficult year in more ways than one. Nevertheless, there have been many happy moments, though most of them were associated with travelling. Since 2016 is almost over I decided to show you my 2016 through 12 photos taken in the last 12 months. It wasn’t easy to choose photos for some travel-filled months because I had plenty of choice while for the others I struggled to find a single photo.

So, here you are, a selection of 12 photos to show you my 2016:


Visiting Hundertwasser house, Vienna, Austria ( I wrote about Vienna, but not about this place)



I love going to my local Tea Room with my best friend. This time I had a big bowl of hot chocolate 🙂

The Chocolate Festival in Opatija, Croatia ( I’ll post about it)

There were other trips and other special events in 2016 but I think that these 12 photos represent best the happy moments of each of the 12 months. There were a lot of frustration, anger and sadness as well. And a lot of family health problems that will continue to be present in 2017 too. Unfortunately, I’m still dealing with my own issues too but maybe 2017 will bring some sort of resolution, some sort of result, one way or the other. I’ll try to be positive as much as I can and do my best to accomplish my goals. Hopefully, 2017 will be more joyful!

  1. I’m sure it’s really helpful to recall the good times, even if there have been hard times too. I certainly found it uplifting looking at all of your lovely positive pictures (especially the chocolate!) #MondayEscapes

  2. I’m sorry to hear that 2016 has been a tough one… it seems it’s been a really challenging year for many of us. I’m so glad, though, that you did have some fun times too. Your trip to the chocolate festival sounds divine. As a fellow chocoholic, I would’ve loved it. Wishing you all the best for 2017.
