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. Continue reading

Why I love photography. 

After traveling, photography is my favourite thing to do with my free time. I get to do it way more than the first one, though.

After some email conversation, and after some consideration, I decided to give it a shot.

Will see if it worked out later, as I just uploaded my first entry here.

It’s an article on New York City that I had published on here a while ago.

Why I love travelling.

And hate it to be called a tourist.

For me, travelling has always been a passion.

I always prefer to find interesting new places then to walk down the beaten path.

I’ve done urban camping, AirBnb, couch surfing and loads of hostelling.

Travelling to me means to get to know places the local way, not the tourist’s way. I’d also prefer to be able to speak the languages of all the countries I’ve been to, but that’s a different story. At least I speak English, with most German tourists demanding people to speak German wherever they go.

But travelling also means to get to see the ‘not so nice’ places and to meet people less fortunate than oneself. That’s  why I really like the idea of travelling responsible (what to me mostly is eating and buying local).

That’s why I love the idea of the social keychain by Traveller Collective.

It’s a 100% (sic) leather clip with a keyring on it. That keyring then contains washers (also known as spacers) engraved with the aberrations of all the countries you’ve visited. They provide 10% (sic) to education in one of the least privileged areas in the world, that be Ethiopia in Africa.

And: the product is handmade in Vancouver, Canada, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
