2016 Instagram Round-Up

2016 Instagram Round-Up

It’s the first week of 2017 and I decided it was the perfect time to look back at the fun stuff I have done and amazing places I have been in the past year with another (have a look at a previous one here) Instagram round-up! Here are some of my favourite photos and memories from 2016:

January

 

January was as cold and bleak as ever, so I didn’t get out much, apart from some walks to see the swans. The photo below I thought was quite funny, saw it on a car in the supermarket car park.

 

The devil is in the details on this car! #devil #devilish #vw #volkswagon #lelystad #netherlands #logo #igersholland

February

Managed to get to Amsterdam for a day in February, and in both these photos you can see that the weather was already starting to get better, yay!

 

Spent the day in Amsterdam! Here’s some quintessential Dutch window shutters on a canal house.

 March

Don’t mind if I do..

March was the month I was taking part in a photography challenge, which helped me with ideas of things to capture, as well as forcing me outside more. March was also the month Luna had her kittens!

 

Luna’s having kittens! Look at that little nose! 😍

April

Visiting the nature park and testing my new camera phone’s capabilities. Seems pretty nice!

I got my new Huawei phone in April and promptly went to the Lelystad Nature Park to try it out. Spring was definitely starting!

 

Omg this tree looked like it was just posing in front of this wall here. Whatta babe.

This photo below was purely an act of perfect random timing. He was going for a walk and I managed to snap him right at the meeting point of the fence/shed. Anyone else see South America on his shoulder?!

May

Enchanted forest.

The weather was gorgeous, perfect for lots of walks among the forested areas around home. Also perfect for lovely photos of Spring blooms!

 

There’s a Brother’s Grimm fairytale called the six swans, well this is the Dutch version; seven geese!

June

Finally visited the replica of the Batavia as well as going on a motorbike ‘road-trip’ through the province of Gelderland in June. Lots of fun!

July

 

We spent a stunning weekend in Luxembourg in Summer, and this tiny country is absolutely breathtaking! Definitely want to go back.

 

 

August

In Bruges!

We had our ‘proper’ Summer holiday through August/September and travelled through Belgium to the South of France to meet up with some friends of mine from Australia! Finally got to see Bruges and loved exploring more of France. So hot!

 

All the pretty colours in Orange, France 😍

September

For the best views in Antwerp make sure you visit the Panorama on top of Museum aan de Stroom – it’s free to see the city from up on high!

Spent some time in Antwerp on our way back to the Netherlands. Another city with so much to see that we’ll need to come back again!

 

 

October

Should I call the fire brigade?! 😹 #catmeetsglobe

The Netherlands has such distinct seasons, and right on time Autumn started. Spent a lovely day exploring a tiny Dutch fishing village called Urk!

 

Today we visited the picture-perfect Dutch town of Urk. Isn’t that the funniest name for a town?! Urk! I love saying it.

November

Gorgeous Autumn colours in the park!

Just as it was starting to get cold I flew back to Australia (via China) for a month. Spent eight days in Queensland for my best friend’s wedding, then three weeks back in Tasmania catching up with friends, seeing my family, and exploring new and old favourite places in my home state.

 

Oh, hai China! 👋

December

I’ve travelled quite a bit in my life but my favourite place is still Spring Beach, Tasmania!

My favourite parts of being back home were definitely spending time with my family and friends, as well as visiting my favourite beach and some nature parks to get up close and personal with some Tassie Devils!

 

Had an absolute blast at the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo today, the highlight was definitely getting a selfie with this cute little devil!

Then returning home to the Netherlands in time for a Dutch Christmas and New Year!

 

Looking back like this is definitely a great way to remind yourself what a year you’ve had, instead of only remembering the bad stuff. I’m looking forward to what I’ll get up to this year, what about you? Tell me your exciting plans for 2017 and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more exclusive photos of my adventures!
