My Favorite 2019 Travel Experiences

It’s that time of year again, when we all reflect on the previous 12 months and for me that means reflecting on the great travel experiences I was fortunate enough to enjoy. This list is more than just about far-flung locales, it’s about travel experiences that were special, many times unique and oftentimes just a whole lot of fun. Sure, we learn and grow as people when we travel, but the experience is also supposed to be fun and for me, these moments were amongst the best I enjoyed in 2...

I have a mixed feelings about 2019. This is the year that had made me rethink about many things so many times. Thankfully I had to change nothing much.
