It is also why I love putting together an annual travel bucket list so that I can see how my travel hopes and dreams evolve and change over the years. Not only is it a great way for me to create a blueprint for the travel adventures that I would like to have in the future, but it is also a way for me to look back and see how my travel preferences and priorities have changed throughout the years.

The clock is beginning to run out on the year 2021 and that means it is about time for my annual post on my Top Travel Photos of the year. To be completely honest, when the year started, my hope was that this post would be filled with wonderful pictures from my autumn trip to Egypt, Jordan, and Israel.

The purpose of this annual post is to share these photographs with you in the hopes that it inspires you to plan your next big adventure.

The Complete Toledo Spain Travel Guide for Tourists Planning to Visit Spain

Anyone who has visited Spain will tell you that the country has no shortage of incredible cities for one to visit. While some of the larger cities like Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia may get most of the attention, I have a soft spot for the culturally rich smaller Spanish cities and towns. One of my favorites of these cities is the incredible city of Toledo. Toledo is one of the oldest and most unique cities that you will find in all of Spain. It was the capital of the country before Madrid and is still widely considered to be Spain’s cultural capital to this day. The city of Toledo absolutely brims with historical landmarks and is renowned for its wonderful festivals that date back centuries. For travelers to Spain who are looking for an authentic Spanish cultural experience, I can think of few cities better to visit than the incredible city of Toledo.
