2011 in a Nutshell

2011 was definitely the busiest year for me. Normally I travel to less than 10 countries in a year. But last year I visited 12 countries, including Abu Dhabi in the UAE (staying only 8 hours for transit).
So here we go, my 2011 travel photography review:

MAY - Singapore
 We went to Singapore for my Mom annual health checkup in Mount E hospital. And took my sister to Changi airport and bid farewell as she was moving to Netherlands after getting married. It was heartbreaking to see my Mom and Dad crying in the airport :(
I was sad but thanks to Luzi, my best friend, she came all the way from Bali to accompany us. It meant a lot to me. We've been best friend since we were kindergarten student. But it was our first trip abroad together, so it was really fun.

JUNE - Jordan, Israel, Palestine territory
It's a dream comes true. I've always wanted to visit Petra and no doubt it's truly amazing. I wish I stayed longer there. And as a catholic it was my first pilgrimage trip to holy land, Jerusalem - Israel.

JULY - Egypt
My second trip to Egypt. This time I climb to reach the peak of mount Sinai. It was a tough 8 hours journey and I fell down which caused a very nasty bruised on my legs. Nevertheless it was my great achievement to overcome my acrophobia - the fear of height.

SEPTEMBER - Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, German
Visiting eastern Europe countries, very beautiful indeed. But I got really sad when visiting the Auschwitz Nazi Camp. All the sickening facts was overwhelming.

NOVEMBER - Singapore
We went to Singapore again because Mom needed to see the doctor.

  13. Hi Debbie, it is really pleasure reading your blog. I love your pictures, it drags me to do travel more and more like you do. I am just curious, your pictures -most of them- show the wide angle and it's cool, did you take it from the highest building or how?

  14. it is really pleasure reading your blog. I love your pictures, it drags me to do travel more and more, like you do. I am just curious, almost all of your pictures view in wide angle, how did you take it, did you take from high building or how? and how did you get the right building to take the picture?

    1. Yes, I love the bird view scenery. I always try to climb to the top of stairs or building or viewing deck. In some places I usually ask the information centre about the place to get the city best view. Thanks for visiting my blog :)
