My Top 10 Travel Photos of 2017

2017 is now officially over. It was an amazing year with lots of amazing trips and travel moments: 133 flights took me to a total of 33 different countries. 16 of them were new countries for me and I hit country number 100 in September with my visit to Senegal.

Here are my top 10 travel photos of the year 2017

10. Nova Levante, Italy

5. Children in Kirundo, Burundi

Children Burundi

Travel tip: soap bubbles are always a good gift to bring to children in the developing world. They are a lot of fun and don’t create as much trash as wrapped candy or other small gifts. Read the full report about my trip to Burundi

4. Mahé Island, Seychelles

Mahé Beach Seychelles

The Seychelles are a true paradise and to my suprise there were hardly any other tourists around on the main island so we could enjoy the numerous beaches all to ourselves.

3. Carcassonne, France

Carcassonne France

Carcassonne absolutely blew my mind. The entire castle is in a perfect condition and gives you the feeling of walking the streets in mediaeval times.

2. Lac Rwihinda, Burundi

Kirundo Burundi

  2. Amazing pictures! I liked picture no. 6 and your African pictures best, but you also raised my interest in Carcassonne. Congratulations to surpassing the 100-country-threshold and all the best for 2018. My first trip will lead me to Penang, Malaysia. Where will yours take you?
