Some may know that I have an obsession with everything Canadian. A few days ago, I watched a documentary/ travel report about Toronto on German TV, and I got a bit nostalgic. Mostly because 5 years ago today, I first set foot on Canadian soil. (The actual first picture I ever took in Canada.) Now,… Continue reading 5 years ago. Today.
My trip to the Netherlands last week has been awesome. But since I'm still a university student and still do have exams to take, it took me quite some time to finally finish up my favourite shot from that trip. To take that shot, I literally and figuratively had to abandon my friends for aabout… Continue reading My favourite picture from the Netherlands.
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. Now, I haven't been… Continue reading TSBTP: Canoeing in Canada.
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. Disclaimer: I'm doing some film photography again, read more here (> click me). But this is a different story. Back in 2013, I… Continue reading TSBTP: My first DSLR.
It was 2014. I had just arrived in Canada, and because I still considered my self a tourist back then, and I technically was a tourist, I had to do touristy things. And visiting Niagara Falls is one such thing. And it was only 1 CAD back then on the Megabus. Plus 1.50 CAD in… Continue reading That time I’ve been to the USA.
I had just arrived home after a year in Canada. I had a bad case of Fernweh. That's how I came to travel to Amsterdam to meet a friend. And, because I was adventurous back then, I decided to stay at Amsterdams Urban Campsite, where you sleep in artwork. I booked that thru AirBnB. And… Continue reading Camping in Amsterdam.
It was 2015. I just had returned from Amsterdam. (I'll also write about that story, don't worry.) My family and I had planned one last trip together. As a family. My brother wasn't able to make it. Because of school. The only upside to this was that I had my own room at the hotel.… Continue reading Majorca.
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. So when I worked at a helicopter skiing resort in British Columbia… Continue reading My first helicopter ride.
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. It was also the first time I actually… Continue reading My favourite shot of Utrecht.
Back in 2014, I boarded a plane from Frankfurt to Canada. It was in April, and it was the day before Good Friday. I arrived in Toronto on the afternoon of April 17. After I went through customs and got my work permit, me and the group I travelled with got picked up by our… Continue reading The first picture I ever took in Canada.
