Burning Man 2015

The Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada is still on my bucketlist.
One day I'll rent a camper, stock up on water and drinks, get the funky wardrobe out of the closet and have an amazing time just looking at the art installations that are simply out of this world.

Check out our Burning Man 2011, Burning Man 2012, Burning Man 2013 and Burning Man 2014 galleries.
