Uncovering the best vacations


Top 60 Photos of 2017

Are you ready for your annual dose of travel photography goodness? 

2017 was a transitional year for Travel With Bender and my travel pace slowed down. But I was still able to capture a range of amazing scenes and moments from the United States, Australia, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, France, and Indonesia. 

I did a better job at narrowing down the list than in 2016 - yeah, 100 was a bit excessive! But there’s so many beautiful places around the world. I just want to share them all with you. 

If you feel the same way, go ahead and share this article with your friends and family. And hopefully I can inspire you to take your first step on your next big adventure.
