Top 10 Travel Moments of 2015
December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?”
- Dr. Seuss
As closing time nears for the year we call 2015, I find myself not remembering the 365 days it entailed but the thousands of moments it encompassed; those little random moments that all-too-quickly became memories and fill me with such happiness that they sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks. What follows is my top 10 travel moments of 2015 that I know I'll be reminiscing about for many years to come...
1. Heli-hiking Fox Glacier, New Zealand
Hiking the Fox Glacier was guaranteed to be a top 10 moment of 2015 even before I actually experienced it, what brings it to the top of the list though is the miraculous conditions that I was allowed to experience the moment in. Firstly, despite this experience being the pivotal reason for booking my trip to New Zealand's South Island in the first place, a helicopter crash at the hiking site just one week before I myself was set to head up the glacier in a helicopter threw off my anxious/excitement see-saw. As the Fox Glacier lies on the West Coast of New Zealand - a region that sees an average of 178 days of rain each year - I worried that the tour would be cancelled due to heightened security measures flying into the almost always foggy glacial valley. However, the morning I was booked for the hike I woke up to the clearest day, that almost turned out to be too nice a day as I felt like a melting ice cream atop the glacier! Secondly, the moment was made more precious by the amazing company of my fellow Topdeckers who joined me in penguin sliding through ice caves and making the experience truly irreplacable.

Back in July my brother and I spent 3 days in the seaside town of Dubrovnik in Croatia. Those 3 days were some of the most peaceful I can recall from the year, as we spent most of our time eating delicious pizza, swimming in the Adriatic Sea and pretending we were in Game of Thrones. However, there is one moment enclosed in that 72 hour window that stands out among the rest, and deserves a mention in this list - the evening we spent kayaking to the setting sun. Sometimes when I'm stressed I close my eyes and think back to this moment as we paddled the lightly rippled Adriatic Sea as the sunset against the Dubrovnik city walls to be awarded with an instant sense of joy and peace.
