Tricia’s Travel Highlights (2015)

Happy New Year! Really looking forward to 2016! This marks my 11th or 12th year as a blogger (shoutout to my deviantART followers!). As I grow older, my priorities have definitely changed, and, to be honest, I seem to be a little more appreciative now than I was before. Sometimes, it only takes a brief pause and a prayer to lay out the cards and focus on what I have (instead of what I don’t have). I’m really lucky to be in a position where I can get to travel for both work and play, and of course, make a living out of sharing the things that I like. I think 2015 was a pretty chill year. Most of you know I took some time off in the middle of the year to work on relaunching my blog. All those sleepless nights of researching, self-studying, and trial-and-error coding paid off by making me even more motivated to do better in what I do. Hopefully, I’ll still see you hanging around here in my blog in the next couple of years…?

In the meantime, I’m making this my last post of the year, and also my official 2015 travel master post. Every time a new travel diary is posted, I’ll be updating this list for easier reference. If you’re looking for specific itinerary ideas, consider checking out the posts below.
