It’s close to the end of the year. This means you’ll be seeing the year in review: Best of… worst of…most memorable…
Here’s another list to add to the multitude, and hopefully this either makes you laugh or inspires you to make fun of yourself or someone you know.
2015 took me to many countries: Spain, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Portugal, France, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam (obviously in no particular order, and clearly not in alphabetical order).
With lots of travel brings lots of photos. And with lots of photos brings lots of bad photos.
I’ve never been one to be particularly photogenic. Travel has only made me see this even clearer. If I don’t look downright awkward, I usually find myself somewhere between boring and too excited. We’re all overcritical of ourselves, this I recognize, but others have also confirmed my debility.
Take a look at the 9 worst photos I took in 2015, and let’s hope 2016 brings even worse ones. #Nothidingfrommyselfanylonger
1- When we were in that room in Morocco
You heard the story (most likely you read it). We were in the same room for hours. Which meant ample time to showcase how that sweat and extreme heat transformed my face.
2- A great photo shoot in Laos
The scenery in the rural area outside of Vang Vieng, Laos was breathtaking. My modelings skills were not.
3- When I wasn’t the only one in Finisterre
After we finished the Camino, Kimberly and I cheated and took a bus three hours to the coast to Finisterre. We cannot blame the exhaustion from the Camino, as by this point, we had relaxed enough.
4- When Sweaty Betty comes out to sunbathe
Enough said. Koh Phi Phi, Thailand, was hot.
5-When my sister tries to take a cheeky Snapchat
6- When I’m sleeping
I’m lucky enough to be able to fall asleep practically on command. I’ve slept in a number of moving vehicles and in front of many people. I can’t control the way I look, and more than that I can’t control who decides to capture those moments.
7-When I try to take a sneaky selfie
Last year in Ibiza my friends and I had a picnic at Cala Salada. Our Argentine friend grilled my beloved choripan. At least chimichurri wasn’t in my teeth at the time I took the picture.
8-When it’s sunset in Cala d’Albarca
My family came to visit me in Ibiza, and little did they know the pickings for their Facebook albums would be slim.
9-When you ask someone something at the wrong moment
Those are also my “don’t look at me” eyes.
You’re in luck. Number 10 is a bonus photo. It’s a throw back from 2014, but it was too good not to share. I was randomly looking at a friend’s Instagram when I saw a gem. At the time when this photo was taken, I didn’t have an Instagram yet. It was a big surprise to stumble upon this last August.
