5 years ago. Today.

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 favourite picture from the Netherlands.

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.

TSBTP: 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. Now, I haven't been… Continue reading TSBTP: Canoeing in Canada.

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. 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.

That time I’ve been to the USA.

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.

Camping in Amsterdam.

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.

Majorca.

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.

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. So when I worked at a helicopter skiing resort in British Columbia… Continue reading My first helicopter ride.

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. It was also the first time I actually… Continue reading My favourite shot of Utrecht.

The first picture I ever took in Canada.

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.
