After nearly three weeks on the road, countless days on the train and constantly changing location, I was beyond happy that my final train journey came to an end. Don’t get me wrong, experiencing the Transiberian railway was an unforgettable experience but it’s not the easiest of trips. I’ll admit that I was tired of moving every 2-3 days, so when our train arrived in Beijing and I stepped on the platform for the last time, it felt good.
Okay, okay, it’s here! This is what you’ve all been waiting for; photos and stories from Mongolia! And they won’t disappoint. Out of Russia, Mongolia and China, this country is the one I get asked about the most and understandably so. It is majorly different from anything else we Westerners know and has the most interesting nomad lifestyle.
Taking the train is a standard commuting platform in Russia and it offered a glimpse into the lives and minds of ordinary people, something I love finding when travelling. After a week in the country I boarded the Transiberian to head from Moscow to Irkutsk and what follows are some moments my lens capture. This is part two of a blog series I’ve started on photographs from the Transiberian trip.
Before I went on a trip of a lifetime on the Transiberian railway in July 2019, I explored two of Russia’s most known cities; Moscow and St Petersburg. Many of you have been asking for more photos of the trip so I decided to do a blog photo series. The pictures are hundreds and the human time concentration span is short (ahem, you know it’s true, mine is too) so I’m splitting them up into four separate blog posts. Following the chronicle of the journey, this first blog post will concentrate on the trip’s first two stops.
In the of summer 2018 I went on a trip to the UK for my ex-flatmate’s wedding and whilst still trying to wrap my head around the idea that some of my friends have started getting married, I made it into a short solo trip. After loving my first trip alone, I couldn’t wait to just grab my camera and explore the streets of Bristol. Flicking through my albums, almost a year later, I found some photos I took that sum up the essence colourful, vibrant Bristol so I decided to share them with you all.
The summer is almost here, the busiest travel season of the year. If you haven’t booked a trip yet, this post might act as a little source of inspiration as it photographs the beauty of Greek Islands. For many of us Cypriots, island hopping is a recurring experience, yet Greek Islands are a hot spot for internationals too. Here’s a little reminder why.
The first blog post of 2019 is dedicated to a favourite hobby and an restless thirst; travelling. Back in March of 2018, I went on a roadtrip through Tuscany’s vine fields and pebbly towns with some girlfriends. Nearly a year later, I came across the photographs I took and wondered what I should do with them. Perhaps I can write about which route we took or life on the road yet sometimes I like to let the images do the talking.
This is a collection of images I took that go beyond Thessaloniki's famous White Tower, to an observation of its urban element and how the locals experience it. Focusing on the city's textures; marble, concrete, water, and stone, this photo essay shows how to alternatively observe Thessaloniki. Through noticing how the locals interact with the cityscape, we gain a peek into its history and culture.
During a summer where the feeling of change was persistently creeping up at my door and I was trying to accept and welcome possible amendments, I decided to do something I haven't experienced before, something out of my comfort zone; go on my first solo trip.
The enchanting cityscape of Strasbourg claims abundant reasons for a visit. In a brief yet thorough exploration of Strasbourg, I have assembled a couple of recommendations to consider during your next trip to this French city.
"Are you going to a European programme by any chance?" she asked. "Yes!" I replied in disbelief that I stumbled on this encounter just a few hours after being in Serbia. Check out my Serbian experiences and what my lens captured.
I went on an inter-communal weekend-long road trip visiting the island's ten most beautiful viewpoints in both the southern and the northern edges of the island in quest to rediscover more of the land I call home.
