My review of 2015: top places and events

I still can’t believe how fast each year goes by, so I wanted to make a summary post to highlight the monthly events and places I’ve been to in 2015.

January: London, UK

I went to London with Bram and two of our friends to celebrate post Christmas and New year. We enjoyed the most amazing fireworks together under London Eye. It was definitely an awesome start of the year.
