Since I have not done a #TSBTP, I thought I would do one today. This time is about Schloss Drachenburg on the Drachenfels in Königswinter near Cologne. Last year, in May 2018, I was on the Drachenfels with University en route to a Field-trip in Cologne. We stopped by Königswinter to view the restoration efforts… Continue reading The Castle near Cologne.
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.
I really love photography. I'm not a huge fan of editing though. But since I'm shooting RAW, there's pretty much no way around it. I'm using Lightroom Classic CC for that task, but most of the things I do should work in any other editing programme. STEP 1: IMPORT & ORGANIZATION Before I edit, I have to import… Continue reading How I edit my photos. (2019 edit.)
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.
