Photographer's Note

Only three hours left in 2018, I can make a summary.
It was a good year for me.
1. The most important, I enjoyed good health. it is important for everyone, but especially for the old person who travels with backpacks.
2. I have a new daughter-in-law.
3. When I was not travelling I could work (with no work, no travel).
and 4. I traveled a bit. I make five excursions, each of them in a different way.
a. With one friend to New Zealand- pure nature, beautiful landscapes, fabulous forests, almost no people but many sheep, no especially interesting architecture.
b. With my husband by car - in Poland.
c. With the big organized group in Balkans - to visit a few places that would be difficult to reach individually - Rila, Ohrid, Matka Gorge.
d. Alone - in Uzbekistan, fabulous architecture, many contacts with the locals.
e. With the small organized group in Gambia and Senegal - fantastic people, interesting nature, no towns.

Altogether I visited 11 countries, in them 5 new ones.
I traveled by planes, trains, buses, taxis, ferries. 72 000 km!

How it will be in 2019? I have quite ambitious plans :).

There are two big blue domes of the Miri-Arab madrasah towering above the surrounding buildings in the center of Bukhara.
