Colombia, Again

Colombia, Again

In spring 2017, Seraina decided that she wanted to travel. She found a job to earn the money she needed, I managed to schedule work the way I had to, and we slowly began making plans for a 3-to-5-months-long trip to start by the end of the year. A few months later, we moved out of the apartment I had lived in for the last four years and embarked on a 3.5-months-long journey that led us to Colombia, Mexico, and the United States. Our first stop was New York City. The city greeted us with freezing temperatures – we were equipped with the thinnest and lightest down jackets we could find.

Vietnam

Vietnam

I had the opportunity to go to Vietnam again last November for a client I had previously worked with. We spent two weeks shooting video footage in various places throughout the country. The trip took us to Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Hoi An as well as very briefly to Da Nang and Bangkok. Despite long hours every day, I managed to also shoot some film. Except for Da Nang, I had visited all these places in 2015 on a 7-week Southeast Asia trip with Seraina. They’re all very fascinating places, though, and I was happy to go back and see them from a different side: the large office spaces in skyscrapers, the hidden rooftop terraces, the great restaurants where the locals we worked with took us night after night.

Bern: July-December 2017

Bern: July-December 2017

I post photos of Bern every 6-12 months, so I’m now adding the months the photos were taken in to the title of the posts. Very important information, right? Anyways, these 27 photos are from the second half of 2017 and most of them were taken either at (my former) home – a great, large duplex apartment that I shared with friends for a little more than four years – or on the route Seraina and I often chose when going for a walk through the city.

2017

2017

I was planning on posting 2017’s best of or flashback post earlier than last year’s. Instead, I’m posting it much later, how about that! 2017 seemed like the fastest year in my life. It was the first full year of full-time self-employment for me and my office was still my bedroom in a shared apartment. It definitely won’t be next year, though. There were many highlights, many new plans made, lots of wonderful places visited, delicious food tasted, and great things experienced.

Traveling Light 2017 – Part 2

Traveling Light 2017 – Part 2

As announced about a month ago, here’s the second part of my Traveling Light pictures. I was delighted when I got more scans back from the lab and was remind once again of this inspiring event and of the great people I met there. Once again, though, I wish I had taken more photos. Almost two months have passed since the film photography gathering in Torroella de Montgrí. The inspiration and motivation to take action and change a lot of things was huge at first – and although it has faded a little bit, it’s still here.

Traveling Light 2017 – Part 1

Traveling Light 2017 – Part 1

A few weeks ago, the film photography gathering Traveling Light took place for the very first time in a beautiful Catalan small town called Torroella de Montgrí. It was an amazing event with amazing people, the speakers were super interesting and highly inspiring and being around so many like-minded people was huge. This community felt really inclusive and supportive in so many ways. I recommend every film photographer to attend the conference next year.

Copenhagen

Copenhagen

Copenhagen is one of my favorite cities, not least because it has some of the world’s finest restaurants and excellent coffee. So this summer, I got to stay two full weeks in Denmark’s beautiful capital. The first week was spent in a big house with a bunch of friends and at a nearby gym, training all day at the BJJ Globetrotters summer camp – with a daily break for brunch of course.

Hamburg

Hamburg

I had been to Hamburg a couple of times before, but I never really spent much time there. All of my visits were very brief, like hanging out a few hours at the bus station on a 24h trip from Copenhagen to Bern. Or just visiting for a few hours to see a football game. This time, though, we had four full days to really see things, do stuff, and – most of all – eat things. Four days still aren’t very long, but we had a terrific time and actually saw and did a ton of things. We rented a beautiful Airbnb apartment right next to Planten un Blomen park and very close to the bustling Karolinenviertel and alternative Sternschanze area.

Staw Otwarty

Staw Otwarty

In early 2015, I went to Gothenburg, Sweden, for a semester abroad. I had a great time and met some great people. Luckily, we were able to sort of keep in touch within one small group of friends that was formed there. I’ve seen some of those friends a few times within the last two years, but this spring, we decided, it was time for a reunion. We settled on a house close to Warsaw, Poland, which we found on Airbnb (and later on Facebook). Unfortunately, not everyone could make it in the end. The house was just as beautiful as it had looked on the internet and we pretty much had our own little lake with a boat and a bridge, a little forest, and a huge sort of patio on the water.

Sur le Pont d’Avignon

Sur le Pont d’Avignon

After I had scaled down my traveling a little and spent the first few months of 2017 in Switzerland (and thus, by the way, successfully fulfilled one of my New Year’s resolutions), in mid-April it was time for a little road trip. Seraina got some days off over the Easter weekend and my parents let us use their car so we decided to spend a long weekend in France. Our first lunch stop was Annecy, a beautiful small city not far from the Swiss border.
