2014 Year in Photos

Is it a sign one has traveled too long if they choose to celebrate New Year's Eve by riding an overnight bus to get to their next destination? Alex and I are ready for our next stop, the historic city of Hampi in South India. And as it was most convenient to leave today, we didn't think much about it overlapping with an international holiday. The convention of a holiday season seems so far away a concept at the moment.

In any case, as a way to reflect on the outgoing year, I thought I'd share a handful of my favorite travel photos. It's been a surprising and winding road which included a voyage to Antarctica, a return to Silicon Valley, and another last-minute trip abroad. I hope everyone else is having a happy and festive new year.
