2012 was a fantastic year for travel and the tourism industry, and it was a record breaking year in terms of the number of people who ventured out and explored the world. Millions of travelers visited cities across the world, and some of our favourite bloggers, writers and travel websites presented to us some great city travel adventure stories and photography during the year. We've collected some of our favourites of 2012.....we hope you enjoy them!

“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”— Gustave Flaubert


"All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it"---Samuel Johnson
