While looking through my photographs in order to participate in this week’s #FriFotos, which has the theme of ‘Peaks’, I realised something.
I have not spent nearly enough time in the mountains.
I love mountains, but tend to migrate more to beaches when I am travelling. Mountains require proper clothing and footwear – things that I don’t often have in my backpack when I am away. Plus, I have spent most of my time around South East Asia where beach and jungle are easier to visit than mountains.
With Norway already high on my list of places to visit, writing this post has inspired me to plan a snow-capped mountain trip soon!
Here are my favourite peak-themed pictures:
It’s not often you get to see snow on sand dunes, but it’s very pretty when it happens, like in this photograph taken just down the road from my parents’ house in Wales
The mist cleared just long enough for me to get a fleeting glimpse of the rice terraces adorning the mountainside in Sapa, Vietnam
These rock pyramids are a popular attraction at Playa del Duque in Tenerife
My first view of the Andes was from the front window of a bus travelling from Mendoza, Argentina, to Santiago, Chile
These sand dunes in Mui Ne, Vietnam, form perfect peaks
La Paz in Bolivia sits in the shadow of the Andes
Sunset over the peak of Mt. Teide in Tenerife, the highest point in Spain
Mountain makes way for beach on the coast of Colombia
The peak of Wayna Picchu looms over the famous ruins of Machu Picchu
View from ‘The Peak’, Hong Kong, on a cloudy day
Which is your favourite peak? Which mountains should I put on my Bucket List?
