2016: A Year in 50 Photos

written by Katie Dawes January 1, 2017


It wouldn’t be the start of a New Year without a recap of my favourite 50 photos from 2016.

If I’m completely honest, going through a whole year’s worth of photos to find my favourites wasn’t as enjoyable as last year. Turning 26 triggered a bit of a quarter-life crisis that turning 25 didn’t. So this year’s memories sway dramatically from fun to… not so fun. I also noticed a huge gaping hole where Morocco should be. That won’t happen again in 2017.

And finally, 2016 was the first year in a long time where I didn’t find a home for myself. I’ve spent far longer than you would think in my hometown in England, but calling that home is difficult when all I want to do is jump on a plane. In 2014 I had Budapest, and in 2015 I had Amsterdam and Morocco as home bases. So one of my 2017 goals is to settle back down somewhere new in this beautiful wide world. And if you know a place, I’m more than open to suggestions.

That being said, 2016 took me to some incredible new destinations! I took my first ever trip to Rome, I stepped foot on Ibiza for the first time in my life, and I fell in love with Montenegro. And returning to some of my favourite cities for the upteenth time has inspired a new series on the blog: Street Art in Europe.

So, after writing more than I intended to in this intro, here are my favourite 50 photos of 2016! You may have seen some of these photos on my Instagram, or in my destination guides, and a few photos are making their very first appearance online. I hope you like them.
