“Don’t count the days, count the moments.”
Watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia? Or spotting a shark whilst diving in Koh Tao, Thailand? Or is it the time that you hired a motorbike and rode off the beaten track through spectacular countryside in Laos? It can be so difficult to choose your best travel moment of the year – there have been so many right? How can you possibly choose?
However long you’ve been backpacking for, you’re sure to have made memories that will last a lifetime and racked up enough stories for the grandkids that they better be patient listeners!
So what if we asked you to choose your best travel moment? Just one exquisite point in time that will remain in your mind forever… what would it be?

We want to make a collection of your 100 best travel moments of 2014. From friends that you connected with, to bizarre new foods you tasted, ancient monuments that moved you, or incredible landscapes that you glimpsed… tell us what has really taken your breath away this year?
We’ll publish the Top 100 Moments here on our website to inspire people all over the world to hitch on that backpack and create their own unique adventure!
