The year 2012 was pretty exciting for me. I was able to finish my master’s degree, find work abroad and still get to squeeze in a bit of travel time. I had fun reminiscing on all the things that happened in my life for the past 12 months and choosing the pictures that best represent each month.
Here’s my 2012 in pictures. Enjoy!
January: Revisited Bangkok and when to the floating market.
February: Hot Air Balloon Ride at Clark.
March: Trekked to Osmena Peak with friends.
April: Beach time at Malapascua
May: After finishing my masters degree, I revisited the beautiful Angkor Wat to celebrate.
June: Visited the Sahara Desert for the first time!
July: I moved to another country and this is my temporary home while I look for an apartment.
August: I miss the beach so much. I went to Samet to unwind.
September: I went to Samui to dip my toes on the beach.
October: Visited the Plain of Jars in Laos.
November: Visited the Long Karen tribe in Chiang Mai.
December: Back to home base to celebrate Christmas with the family.
This was taken on the trail to Osmeña Peak in Cebu. It is home to several vegetable farms which one can pass by when trekking from Osmeña Peak to Badian proper. The view is impressive and people are living the simple life – no electricity, no motorbikes or cars can pass through the trail. The only option is to walk. When they need to transport things, they put it in a basket which they carry on their head. This is what they do everyday.
