The US east coast in self-portraits

Things have been so hectic that only now I can find the time to go through the pictures I took on this amazing trip. Starting on 17 May, I spent a month travelling down along the east coast of the United States, together with a friend. We visited New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Charleston, Charlotte and...

Shutterspeed: Southeast Wales

  Last summer I passed through Wales on my way to England, stopping at the Hay-on-Wye literary festival to meet up with some of my former colleagues from the publishing house where I did my internship. What a welcoming sight the rolling green hills presented while the plane touched down at Cardiff Airport, and how... Continue Reading →

Shutterspeed: Kuala Lumpur

In 2015 I travelled to New Zealand and Indonesia, an incredible trip which led to the start of this blog. To cut the 24-hour flight to Auckland in half we decided to take 48 hours off in the city where we had to transfer, Kuala Lumpur. As it turned out, 48 hours were enough, Southeast...

Shutterspeed: Zürich

Four years ago my mum and I went to visit my sister in Zürich, Switzerland. She was doing an internship there and we had decided to take the night train from the Netherlands to Zürich, which would drop us off right in the middle of the city after about ten hours. I spent the visit... Continue Reading →

Yet there was still plenty to see when I visited there in April earlier this year, though it... Continue Reading →

Shutterspeed: Newcastle

While on holiday in Yorkshire last month, my friends and I decided to go up to Newcastle for the day. I didn't know much about the city, except that it was at the heart of the industrial revolution in Britain and that it's where Dire Straits singer Mark Knopfler is from. In fact, while making...

Histourism: Riga

As the temperatures are finally consistently running into the high twenties Celsius here, it's funny to think that only about two months ago I was walking around in Riga in a snowstorm - granted, one that only lasted a day. We went out then, on Easter Sunday, thinking we might do some sightseeing, but ended... Continue Reading →

Shutterspeed: Colourful Dublin

My last day in the British Isles this summer was spent in Dublin, the colourful capital of Ireland. I had never been there before, but it had been on my list for a long time, and how I'd love to go back! I walked through the streets of Dublin early in the morning, inhaling the crisp morning...
