Sardinia

Sardinia

Every summer for many years, we traveled to Sardinia for our family’s summer vacation when I was a child. It must have been around fifteen years that I last joined. Last September, I went back with Seraina for a week. We drove to Genoa by car, boarded the ferry and arrived on this beauty of an island the next morning. The beaches were just as beautiful as I’d remembered them.

2019

2019

Once again, it’s almost spring by the time I’m posting last year’s flashback. A ton of things happened in 2019. One thing was that I did not do a lot of photography work, taking less jobs but also not really working on personal work. Mostly, because I was really busy with what has become a full-time job by now: sourcing, roasting and brewing coffee for the small coffee roastery I started with my brother Dennys: Drip Roasters.

Paris

Paris

We visited Paris during the record-breaking heat wave last summer. The day before we took the train from Bern to Paris, we received a reminder by email to bring enough water. We were pretty much boiling in the city when it reached an all-time high temperature of 42.6° celsius. Two days later, the temperature dropped by 20-ish degrees. Despite the heat, we had an amazing time, drank too much wine and Chartreuse and ate too much great food.

India – Part 5: Ahmedabad & Kochi

India – Part 5: Ahmedabad & Kochi

Leaving Rajasthan, we took a bus to Ahmedabad. We had a flight to Kochi the following day and only had about half a day to spend in Ahmedabad. We used it to eat lunch at a branch of Swati Snacks, which was surprisingly awesome, drive around the city on tuk-tuks, visit the Gandhi Ashram, where we met lots of green parrots, and ended the day with a great Gujarati thali in a rather fancy setting. The next day we flew to Kochi and I got food poisoning.

India – Part 4: Jodhpur & Udaipur

India – Part 4: Jodhpur & Udaipur

On we travelled to our next two Rajasthan destinations: Jodhpur and Udaipur. Palaces and forts everywhere in both cities, this being the land of kings and all. Jodhpur, the «blue city», wasn’t as blue as expected, yet very nice. Except for a trip to Mehrangarh Fort and a visit to a market, we mostly moved about in a rather small radius around our accommodation, which was situated close to the Toorji’s Step Well in a really nice area with many shops, cafés and restaurants nearby.

India – Part 3: Jaipur

India – Part 3: Jaipur

We left Rishikesh a little too late, had to wait a little too long for the taxi to arrive and there was too much traffic, so we missed our overnight train to Jaipur. Stranded in Haridwar, we managed to find a travel agent who booked us on the next train back to Delhi and on the first train to Jaipur the morning after. So we ended up in Delhi one more time and got to spend the night at a hotel instead of a train, which wasn’t too bad after all. Jaipur was the first of our three stops in Rajasthan.

2018

2018

Another year has flown by and once again, I’m late with my flashback sort of post on here. I haven’t been photographing much lately. Instead, my focus was on another project-come-business of mine: Drip Roasters. I started a coffee roasting company together with my brother Dennys, which means we pretty much worked day and night to get our coffees to taste the way we wanted them to and to start a company and create a brand from scratch. But this post isn’t about the last few months only, it’s about 2018. And I did a good many other things in this crazy year, too. As anticipated, I did spend (much) more time traveling compared to 2017. A little too much, […]

Japan

Japan

We initially planned a trip to Japan on our way back from Hawaii in early spring, making it a round-the-world trip. However, we had to change plans and fly back the other way around, postponing our trip to Japan by a few weeks. So by the beginning of June, we finally left for Japan after spending a bit over a month at home. On the road again! (Or in the air, rather.) We had been to Tokyo a year and a half earlier and absolutely loved it, but we hadn’t seen anything else of Japan. This time, besides Tokyo, we were to visit the two small towns Hakone and Yamanakako in the Fuji Five Lakes region, close to the beautiful symmetrical volcano, as well as Kyoto.

Traveling Light 2018

Traveling Light 2018

When the tickets went live for this year’s Traveling Light, I didn’t hesitate and booked my spot as soon as possible. Traveling Light is a gathering for photographers passionate about film photography. I wrote a few words about it on this blog last year. This year’s event was even better! It was a perfect mix of inspiring keynote presentations held by speakers from all kinds of different styles and genres, workshops with some of the industry’s best and most experienced photographers, delicious food, a few parties, and a whole lot of side activities.

Hawaii 2018 – Part 2: Oahu

Hawaii 2018 – Part 2: Oahu

Before I’m diving into the Oahu part of our trip, the first picture here is that one photo I took on Maui. Oahu was our last destination on our 3.5-months-trip (not counting a 20-something-hour layover in LA). After having been to quite a number of beaches within the last few days on the Big Island, we didn’t need much beach time on Oahu. Instead, we did the short hike/walk up to the Diamond Head crater, where I took the same photo I’d taken two years ago. We ate a lot of delicious things (poké!) and (re)discovered some great coffee spots in Honolulu and enjoyed being in a big city again after a few weeks without one. And we rented a […]
