Favourite Travel Photo #Linkup

The lovely ladies Kelly, Emma and Rebecca are at it again, this time they seeking to peek into our photo archives for our favourite travel photos. My last linkup was a couple of months ago, having missed a few purely due to life pressures and being at a loss as to what to write about. This time however, the moment I read the theme, a photo popped into my minds eye.


New York City - Top of the Rock
I love this photo. It was taken by my friend J and I confess that it was totally staged. BUT, that day, there was a reflective moment which could have mirrored that photo. It was the end of my first trip to New York which had been entirely surreal; from finding myself in the middle of Grand Central Terminal to picnicking in Central Park, to walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, to seeing the Statue of Liberty. It felt so whirlwind that I had to stop and simply take in where I was, really absorb it, appreciate it and remember it. And that's what this photo is for me. A bitter sweet moment, on the cusp of leaving New York but loving the magic of being there those few days.

I have so many other photos that are favourites so I might do a separate post where I share one favourite photo from each destination. What do you think?

Before I go, here is another favourite. It was taken in 2005, my very first day in London. Ever. You can tell a lot by my smile. And I still have that guidebook!



What is your favourite travel photo?

  6. Great photo of NYC! I have always wanted to go there but haven't had the chance yet. I think originally living so close to it I just never actually got around to going.

  9. Look how happy you are in your second photo! So lovely! And aren't those reflective moments when travel makes you stop and take it all in just the best? I've also been in a little posting rut - but maybe we plan something again quickly to get us back in the swing of things? xx

    1. I think the technical term is "goofy happy". Yep, I love those moments.
      Sounds like a good idea :)
