As the year comes to an end, we’re forced to think about all the things that we did, the things we’re proud of, all that it took and all that it gave us as well as the lessons we learned. It’s always a special time to create a positive vision towards the future and the new year to come.

I’m extremely grateful for all the experiences I’ve lived throughout this year and even though it’s been tough, it has brought personal and professional growth. Specially I would like to thank you and every reader and follower of my work, because you’re such an important part of what I do and what the blog has become.

I’m hopeful that 2016 will be great, with even more adventures and photographs to be taken. This is why I decided to close 2015 with photos from my last trip to Monteverde, Costa Rica. Its breathtaking scenery, awe-inspiring sunsets and the mountains that burst into life in this cloud forest reserve, were the perfect metaphor for all the accomplished goals, the road ahead and the dreams we chase.

Have a wonderful new year!
