Without a doubt, 2015 has been the best year yet. If nothing else exciting happened, getting engaged to Ashley would have made it the best year of my life. However, quite a bit more happened – most notably getting to travel the world!

As my loyal readers can attest, I have been a slacker when it comes to blogging this year. I hope this explains some of my absence. I have been a bit busy traveling the world, and though I hate to admit it, traveling is extremely tiring and garnering motivation to blog after a long day of travel is harder than I thought it would be!

Below is my attempt to recap the year that was 2015. My 2016 New Year’s resolution is to blog some high quality photos and recounts from these trips. (Photos below)
