Me, my colleague and his wife went on a two-day trip in May 2019 to see some impressive leftovers from the battle of Verdun in France. He knows for sure almost everything about war so it was a very interesting thing to experience.

Travel diary: Hong Kong, winter 2018

Once again I picked Hong Kong for Christmas because 365 days ago I met my other half. She’s sweet and beautiful, simply all I can ever hope for. So, yes my trip to Hong Kong was beyond great and I had 3 weeks to enjoy it to the fullest… and it truly was memorable. A picturesque photo album of my trip.

What’s in my camera bag? I love taking pictures of beautiful moments while I travel or when I visit amazing places. Keeping those memories with you are great to enjoy them later while you look through plenty of photo albums.

My trip to Taiwan was extraordinary, marvellous, sometimes spicy when it came to driving across a 3000 metre high mountain range right in the middle of the island, but after all the adventure was well worth it.

First Italian peak trek, the Gran Paradiso – September 2015

After a beautiful trip to the higher grounds of Europe, just out of reach for the dark clouds, we returned home safely with a lot of nice pictures and memories to never forget. We topped the Gran Paradiso in Italy in open sky and temperatures high above zero, that’s how it was.

4 days in Riga, Latvia – August 2015

There is so much to see in this city and four days is just not enough. I didn’t go for a swim in the nearby Baltic Sea, I didn’t bought anything from the Riga Central Market and I didn’t do any museum, but I stretched my legs instead and had a good walk in and around the city.

Germany and Poland – July 2014

A road trip to Germany and Poland took me and Hannes to many unknown places in both countries, an extra special event awaited us at the end of our two-weeks holiday.

1 week in Lesbos, Greece – September 2013

A good friend of mine asked me once: “Why don’t you join me to the beautiful island of Lesbos in Greece?” I heard him talking about that island for a while now and I thought yeah why not… It was pretty much worth it, perfect weather, beautiful place and lots of sweet sunsets.
