Favourite Instagram Images from 2012

I had some great trips in 2012. My early skiing holiday felt like a combination of skiing and a beach holiday due to the insane amount of sunshine. No skiing planned in 2013 unfortunately, but trips planned to Cape Town and also pencilled in for China will be fantastic. Here are a few of my favourite Instagram images from the holiday I took in 2012. Instagram gets a lot of stick (especially recently) but I am glad an Android app was finally released last year.


My main break of last year was a mini-trip around Europe, starting at Amsterdam and finishing at Paris. I had never been to Paris before, which is quite shameful as it is so close to London these days.

Just as it is easy to spend a lot of money on pastries, it’s also very easy to take lots of photos whilst exploring. Luckily the weather in Paris was fantastic compared to the previous stop at Brussels.

The rather unreliable weather has actually improved this photo.





I spent a lot of time in Amsterdam cycling and visting a lot of things I had missed on past visits. It feels so relaxed, especially people-watching in Vondelpark on a warm day.

I hope you enjoyed this small selection, let me know if you recognise any of these places!
