TSBPT: Canoeing in Canada.

It’s Canada Day. And because of that, and because it’s my favourite day in July, I decided to write something about my favourite hobby I had when I was in Canada back in 2014, working and living in Algonquin Park. And it’s not hiking.

I’m talking about Canoeing. Canoeing is awesome.

TSBTP: My first DSLR.

I’ve enjoyed photography ever since I can remember. I got my first camera at the age of 5. And back in 1999, everything was still pretty much film. And I enjoyed it.

My first helicopter ride.

I’ve always been scared of heights. I also never liked roller coasters. So you probably can imagine that a flying roller coaster would be overkill for me. But I’ve never actually had flight fright. And I also always wanted to ride a helicopter.

My favourite shot of Utrecht.

I took this picture back in 2015 when I visited a good friend that I had met back in Canada, and who lived in Utrecht at the time, to celebrate New Years in Amsterdam. It was also the first time I traveled with my then new DSLR.
