Happy new year, friends! I'm starting to get my shit together (caught a nasty cold that spanned the entire holiday week... woe is me, it's fiiine) and will be rolling out my tales from Hong Kong soon, promise. To say the least, this trip was beyond any of my expectations and preconceptions that I had about the city and was the perfect jet-lagged way to end a whirlwind year that also included incredible trips to Iceland, Denmark, Portugal, UK, and Thailand. I'm excited for even bigger journeys in 2012 and looking forward to sharing it all with you.
In the meantime, here are some of my favourite photos of 2011 that I was able to capture in between eating my face off and being blown away by the talent in all pockets around the world.
P.S. A lot of people have asked if I ever ended up successfully completing my first "2 weeks of no carbs challenge" before leaving for Hong Kong and the answer is, "hell, no." What is life without carbs? Exactly.
