2015 || A Look Back

2015 || A Look Back

Forty-eight weeks, 5 continents, 38 countries & territories. Hundreds of good pictures, thousands of bad ones. The epic year that was.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik, Croatia

”It’s historic, but about the only discernible purpose it serves today is to appease tourists, a sole function it fulfills with aplomb. Make no mistake, and regardless of the time of year you drop by, you won’t be alone sampling the so-called Pearl of The Adriatic. But sample it you must, at least once in your lifetime.”

Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

A once-important Ottoman Empire crossroads settlement & location for the iconic Stari Most (Old Bridge), the oft-rebuilt bridge over the Neretva River.

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

“I find it somewhat ironic that a city in which Muslims, Jews, Orthodox Christian & Catholics have lived in harmony for centuries should have such an unenviable and undeniably tragic past – Sarajevo was both the birthplace of World War I & the location for the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare.”

Belgrade, Serbia

Belgrade, Serbia

The Balkans Party central situated on a confluence of the mighty Danube River. A quirky & likable city still bearing very visible scars from the 1999 NATO bombing during the Kosovo War.

Transylvania, Romania

Rolling rural farmland, Neo-Renaissance & Medieval Dracula castles & Carpathian Mountain resort towns.

Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest, Romania

Wide Boulevards. plazas, beat-up Dacias, crumbling & eclectic architecture & gargantuan concrete monstrosities from the infamous Communist era. There’s more to the Romanian capital than a desire to leave.

Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

Atop 4 hills & the location for the skyline-dominating Tsarevets Fortress, the stunning & historic former medieval capital of the Bulgarian tsars.

Istanbul, Turkey
