Top 12 Photos of 2012
So 2012 is almost over which means it’s time for my top photos of the year. This years list is a little shorter then last years, Sam and I only made it to 3 counties this year. But we are starting a 8-10 county tour next week so I guess next years list will be a long one. So in chronological order here’s my list of the top photo photos of 2012:
This is Cagsawa Church in the Philippines, which was brunt down in 1814 when the Mayon Volcano erupted. We went to the Philippines to swim with whale sharks which you can read about here. Unfortunately none of our pictures in the water turned out, but this one was good enough to make my list.
This one was taken at the Seoul Lantern festival which is held in honour of the Buddha’s birthday. You can read about it and see more photos here.
This was maybe my favorite thing we did in Korea, the Boryeong Mud Festival which you can read more about here.
Kiyomizudera Temple in Kyoto. Kyoto is one the my favorite places I have ever been to. There was so much to see and do I could even fit all into one blog post. You can check out many more great photos from Kyoto here and here.
The sunrise on Mt. Fuji. We climbed all night in order to get to the top to watch the rise, which was well worth the effort. You can read the full story here.
This is the Atomic Dome at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. It was the most moving place I’ve ever been in my life. I didn’t write about it because I don’t know how to put the feeling I felt into words. All I can say was it was very moving and anyone who get to visit Japan should go out of their way to visit the park.
Me at a Lotte Giants Baseball game. Although you may think by the guy next to me I was making a scene, I can assure you I wasn’t. Korean’s (expect this one guy) know how to do baseball. The guy taking the picture had a full size folding table set up with a mini BBQ!! Your allowed to bring in anything you want as long as it’s not glass, including as much beer as you want. And if you run out you can just buy some more for $2!! I would love to see this at Blue Jay’s games.
Same and I on Jeju-Do, which is Korean’s sub tropic island. The guy we are standing with is the official mascot of the island and can be found all over it. This one however, is one of the 40 or so originals dating back over 250 years. Read more here.
Sam and I after attaching our love lock on the top of Namsan. Read more here.
I hope you enjoyed the pics, I’m going to try to blog as much as I can from the road the next few months, should have a lot more great pics to share…. Well, see you later.
