2014 Travel Notes Calendar – Travel Photography From Europe

The 2014 Travel Notes Calendar is out; featuring a collection of travel photographs taken while driving around Europe during the last twelve months.

Choosing twelve images to feature (one for each month) from a year of travel is not always easy; especially when one month seems to have had a little more action than another, or perhaps the weather just seemed better.

Last year, we featured an UNESCO World Heritage Site each month and I was tempted to do the same again this year; opting instead for a mixed selection.
