There are only a few days left to the end of the year and what better way to close it than to recall the best images of 2017. These were the 10 moments with more likes on Instagram. Here are the stories behind each image.
And if you still haven’t joined me on Instagram, how about starting now? 😉
- BEACH BIRDS
As you already know the beach is my second element and these friends also seem to love good wet sand. This photo was taken in the winter, but I can’t remember where. The truth is that they are often assiduous presence in my surf sessions. Be in the north, center or south of the country.
The photo is not from 2017, but I went to pick it up at the end of the drive to mark International Women’s Day. I came across these girls in Sumbawa, Indonesia, and their smiles reminded me that there are big (and small) women who deserve the World and all our respect!
- SURFER OF ERICEIRA
This one was taken right outside my house! In March of this year, Ericeira (Portugal) won a new statue reminding that this is definitely a land of surfers.
- WATERS OF THE ZÊZERE RIVER
One of the trips that I had the pleasure of doing this year was to Dornes, in Portugal, an incredible medieval village bathed by the Zêzere. I went during the week, outside the high season, and the sound of the river waters accompanied me all the time and made the visit even more special.
- THE FACES OF JAVA
It was the trip of 2017 and from there I brought several memories, including the image of this woman. I was visiting a local market in Pacitan, Java (Indonesia) when I came across this vendor. At first she was embarrassed, but then she smiled into the camera. Looking at this photograph always fills my heart!
- TEMPLE IN SRI LANKA
I visited Sri Lanka in late 2016, but this year I released this image. It was taken in the Temple of the Sacred Tooth, where I met a series of students who roamed the monastery and learned more about their culture. I found groups like this in the various temples I visited in that country.
- SURFING IN PORTUGAL
Facing the cold in Peniche. This time of year sometimes is not easy to surf, and after several weeks without going to the water, I registered this beautiful winter day and my return to the sea.
- AZORES IN MY HEART
Although it has been some time since I went to the island of São Miguel, in the Azores, I can’t stop remembering this trip. I shared this picture earlier in the year and was one of the most liked. Needless to say why, right?! The Lagoa das Sete Cidades always wins hearts. 😉
Another work moment, this time in my own city: Lisbon. I went through this street art piece by Vhils when I was making a travel guide in the old city neighborhoods. Amália is an icon of Portugal and it’s always worth remembering her.
- TEA TIME
Another one from Sri Lanka to close this top of the best images of 2017. This time in the center of the tea plantations in the region of Nuwara Eliya. I don’t think I ever drank the famous Ceylon tea as before. 🙂
