First of all I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year!

Travel Guides – new section on the blog

Besides writing a lot of new posts, this year I introduced many changes to the blog and one of the biggest was addition of Travel Guides section, where I share useful tips from the locations I visit, like the best photo spots in Madeira or tips about travelling in Japan. Let me know if you like it or maybe it’s better I focus only on photography?

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog last year and I hope you will enjoy reading it in 2017 as well.

If you have any suggestions or requests, feel free to share them with me.
