Photo feature: Best of 2015

By Jocasta

Welcome to the DD Adventure Blog, and our brand new website! It’s been a long time in the works but we’re really pleased that we can finally show you what we’ve been up to.

Over time we’ll be posting a whole array of journals, tips, news, guest articles and much more to the blog - and we wanted to kick it off with a collection of our favourite photos sent in by DD enthusiasts all over the world. We’ll start with a round-up from a very big year for us: 2015!
