12 months, 12 photos (2017)

Last year I published an overview of my year in 12 photos. One photo for each month of the year. I decided to do it again this year. However, this was a much different year because I finally got pregnant and welcomed my baby boy last month:) So happy! But that meant that I didn’t travel much. Actually there was only one trip abroad in the whole year and that was a day trip! I know, very pitiful for a travel blogger. Though there were plenty of local day trips and a very lovely babymoon.

So this is my 2017 in 12 photos:

January

Krk island, Croatia

My husband and I spent a few very cold days in his parents’ summer house on the island Krk. The whole place was virtually deserted so we went for a walk by the sea and we played board games at home.

February

I did a course for a tourist guide and got my licence later on. One of the places we visited during that course was the tiny town of Osor on the island Cres. I meant to post about it to continue my Discover Croatia series but life got in the way.

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:

January

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

Beach snaps VIII

Nice, France

Nice, France

The view of the beautiful city of Nice with its Promenade des Anglais and the beach…

This is the last beach snaps blog post. I published eight during this summer to show you some of my favourite beaches from last years. I’ve been to some pretty great beaches in Greece too but I don’t have those photos anymore. I hope you’ve enjoyed my beach photos. My first blogiversary is next week and I’m also co-hosting the monthly travel link up for September! If you haven’t noticed I also registered my domain so I’m now theredphoneboxtravels.com !:)

Beach snaps VII

Southwold

Southwold, England

This photo was taken in October, 2009. I guess this beach is full of cheerful families on a warm summer day. Don’t you just love these colourful beach huts? I hear they’re quite expensive though. So what’s your favourite seaside town in England? Is the sea too cold for swimming? My last beach snaps post is due next week and then it’s back to business as normal e.g publishing city posts!:)

p.s. I’ve recently opened a Google+ account! Do join me there too!thanks:)

Beach snaps VI

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Mošćenička Draga, Croatia

A small fishing village near the town of Opatija which is the oldest seaside resort in Croatia. During the Austro-Hapsburg empire many aristocrats and royals frequented Opatija and the nearby town of Mošćenička Draga. Today it’s beach is popular with locals and tourists alike (there’s also a nudist beach).

Ps. I’m currently in a small Dalmatian village without access to the Internet so this is a scheduled post. I’ll reply to any comments next week!:)

Beach snaps V

Cannes

Cannes, France

In this photo you can see the famous Carlton Hotel at Croisette and the beach. Each part of the long sandy beach belongs to a certain hotel so you have to pay (a lot) for the sun lounger. But this part of the beach is public so you can stay here for free:) You can check my Cannes guide too if you want 🙂

P.S. It’s too hot to think properly so I’ll probably continue with my London posts in September. In the meanwhile you can enjoy my beach snaps and maybe I write something proper if I muster the strength to do it (it’s around 30° all the time). Luckily I can go to the beach to refresh;)

Beach snaps IV

Portugal, somewhere between Cabo da Roca and Cascais

Nearly two years ago I spent my honeymoon in Lisbon. It was a wonderful week! We also visited Sintra region and Evora. I’d like to go back to Portugal one day. I’d love to visit Porto and maybe even spend some time at Portugal’s coast. Have you seen my previous beach posts? I’ll be posting them throughout the summer:)
