After being home for several months, I still had empty photo frames on my walls.
I have so many photos from the last two years of travel that I simply could not narrow it down enough. I asked you to help me make the decision.
Thanks for coming through!
I share the results in this post.
These are the best of the best, voted BY YOU!
And because I have so many other photos that may not be worth of a 36 x 24 print but make me smile, I found a creative and visually appealing way to display several smaller prints.
Check those out at the end.

More photos that make me smile
I LOVE the graffiti art all over Latin America, especially in Buenos Aires.
My bikini may not have matched my wool hat, but I didn’t care. This hot “bath” was amazing after a few days on the road without a shower.
I took my first cooking classes ever during my travels in Latin America. It was so much fun that I began to seek them out wherever I went. This photo is from a very memorable day cooking in Valparaiso, Chile.
These adorable children were happy to pose for a photo in their traditional Carnaval outfits in Ocu, Panama.
Well, this just reminds of how anything goes in Central America.
This was very early on during my travels. I fell in love with Antigua, Guatemala, and I was really getting into photography and learning by doing.
Friendly smiles and delicious street food in Mexico City.
A slice of fresh watermelon (one I don’t have to cut up myself) always put a smile on my face in Leon, Nicaragua.
I love flip-flops. I wore holes through the bottoms of two pair of Tevas and a few other cheap pairs I had to buy on the road. Despite wearing SPF30 sunblock religiously and staying in the shade between 10am and 2pm while I was in Central America, I had the most ridiculous tan of my life.
One of my favorite things in Central America is that whenever you bought a licuado (smoothie) or fresh juice from a street vendor or in the markets, it was served in a plastic bag with a straw. When I make smoothies at home, sometimes I am tempted to put it in a bag and walk through my neighborhood just to see if anyone says anything.
