A Year in Travel Pictures, 2014 – September (Part I)

September was the time of our two-week long family vacation to Greece. We visited three islands of the Dodekanese archipelago: Kos, Nisyros, and Tilos. Kos is very crowded, developed, and popular with tourists from Northern Europe, but luckily it is much less so in September and it still has some beautiful spots. Nisyros and especially Tilos are much different: small, …

A Year in Travel Pictures, 2014 – August

August is when everybody in Europe goes on vacation and most cities, unless they are tourists attractions, become ghostlike. We usually take our big family vacation in August, but this year we left very late in the month and most of it ended up in September, so stay tuned for the next episode in this series, if you want to …

A Year in Travel Pictures, 2014 – June

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I only took a short trip to Basel, Switzerland, in June 2014. That’s just how things go, sometimes. As at the time I was attending (and still am attending) an online street photography workshop at The Arcanum with Valerie Jardin, I used what little time I had after work in Basel to practice my street …

April was the month I visited for the second time a country that I adore and that, photographically, is one of the most rewarding and stimulating I have ever seen: Morocco. Whereas on my first trip there I was at the beginning stage of my photography and did plenty of landscapes, this time we mostly stuck to cities (Rabat, Chefchaouen, …

A Year in Travel Pictures, 2014 – February

2014 has been a great year for me, travel-wise. Even though I didn’t travel to exotic destinations, I’ve visited eight foreign countries and had the opportunity to take a huge number of photos in some really beautiful places. With this post, I am starting a series where I will be reminiscing about all those travels and showing you some of …

Nisyros, A Little Known Gem Of The Aegean

The Aegean Sea contains hundreds of islands within its confines, many of them popular tourist destinations, like Mykonos, Santorini, Naxos, Kos, and Rhodes. Popularity has its benefits and those islands are certainly beautiful, but it also has its drawbacks, like huge crowds, commercialization and homogenization. Having recently seen a McDonald’s and an Irish pub in the streets of Kos made …
