12 Travel Photos from 2012

I’ve seen a lot of these end-of-the-year travel summary posts for 2012 in the blogosphere in the last week. I don’t travel nearly as much as most of the bloggers writing these posts. I had my awesome month-long trip to New Zealand, an extended weekend in Chicago, and a trip to Florida with my wife. From these I picked 12 photos I really like- to say they are ‘my top 12 from 2012’ would probably be overstating it, since I could have easily picked 100 photos from the New Zealand trip. I will eventually try to write some sort of post with my 20-30 favorite New Zealand pics, but for the purpose of this post, I just randomly selected some of the one I consider in that group.

The New Zealand trip alone made it an amazing 2012 in travel (I still have 7 more days to write about!) and I’m looking forward to some exciting travels (details coming soon) in 2013!
