Seeing as we’re now 13 days into 2013, I thought it fitting to share my 12 favorite photographs of 2012.
2012 took me around the US, with trips to Denver, Vail, New York City, San Francisco, and more. It also took me abroad to New Zealand and Australia for the first time.
Coming off the end of my time abroad, I think you’ll find I couldn’t get enough of these places…so, it was difficult to choose my favorite shots.
Without further adieu, may I present…my favorite twelve shots of the year.
1. Taranaki, New Zealand
2. Sydney, Australia
3. Lake Gunn, New Zealand
4. Huka Falls, New Zealand
5. Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales, Australia
6. Fox Glacier, New Zealand
7. Milford Sound, New Zealand
8. Bay of Islands, New Zealand
9. Cathedral Cove, New Zealand
10. Sydney, Australia
11. Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand
12. Unknown, New Zealand

These are some amazing photos. What an experience it must’ve been in Australia and New Zealand. It looks amazing. I hope to go there one day. Thanks for sharing the photos.
Thank you, Elliot! I hope you make it “down under” someday. I can’t recommend it enough 🙂
So beautiful! You’ve made me want to go to New Zealand so much more!
Your blog makes me want to come to Asia and go traipsing around the globe! Oh wait… 😉
HOW ON EARTH did you LEAVE? Our oldest treks Abel Tasman in February and I am J.E.A.L.O.U.S. !!!
Naomi, my dear, it was DIFFICULT! I’m so happy for your oldest! It is the best, and so safe. Let me know if I can offer any tips 🙂
I saw your blog on LC! It’s great! I’ve always wanted to make it down under, but I can live my lust for those experiences through your pictures!
I just started blogging, but I will be primarily focusing on travel as well 🙂 I only have three travel guides, but feel free to check it out and give me feedback! Thanks 🙂
Hi! Thank you for stopping by! I love to travel vicariously through others’ pictures…I call it armchair travel. Hehe. I am happy to share!
I also like your site! Maui is magical, isn’t it?! You take great photos. I know it’s hard to get started blogging, but let’s keep at this! I’ll be following along 🙂
All amazing pictures Soul Sister… I’m in love with Koalas now. ❤
Thank you, darling! Yes, I have the same love. I used to be all about pandas, but I think koalas have become my new number one <3

Anne – you are my adventure hero! Game’s on…where to next?
You are MINE! I still want to hear about YOUR recent trips. As for next, I am planning on somewhere in Southeast Asia for this year–or maybe back to India like we’ve talked…come along?!

Anne, I think you need to apply to an adventure magazine to write articles and to see the sights for them. At least to make $$$ while you travel. Your pictures are breath taking.
That would be the dream! I’m trying to get as much experience as I can on my own. How great would that be if I could actually get paid to do this! Maybe someday…thank you for reading! 😀
I just took a second look at this and had to comment about how breathtaking these shots are! Most of them are so amazing they look fake (but that’s New Zealand for you), and I’m jealous you saw Milford Sound on a sunny day!
Well, thank you! I am quite proud of the photos but like you said…that’s New Zealand for you! So I can’t take too much credit 🙂
You’ll get back to Milford sooner than me I’m sure, and I hope it’s sunny for you 🙂
