As I said in my previous post, I recently got robbed and had to buy some brand-new camera equipment. While I loved my big digital reflex camera and its lenses (which got stolen), I hated their weight and size – way too much stuff to carry for someone who’s constantly on the move like me. So when I hit the market again (this time with a rather limited budget) I decided to go for a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses. Backed up by some research and helped by some of my my friends’ opinions I ended up buying myself a Fujifilm X-E2.
A long time passed since I made a post on the blog. Unfortunately these last couple of months have been a bit stressful with a number of unfortunate events occurring in sequence, including the theft of 90% of my camera equipment during our trip to Kuala Lumpur. Yes, I’ve been robbed again, but fortunately (so to say) this time I didn’t lose any of my pictures and I still have my laptop and my data is safe. Because I couldn’t afford to stay without a camera for a long time, I made a quick decision and taking advantage of an offer, I bought myself a Fujifilm XE-2, which proved a great purchase (but I’ll write more about it in the next posts) although I still miss my big Canon from time to time.
Anyway, the negative spell seems to be fading out (although, please send me your positive energy ) and I’m so excited to announce that Kerala Tourism recently picked me along with other 24 travel bloggers, writers and photographers, to be part of Kerala Blog Express.
Sylvie is a Muay Thai fighter from the US and she’s currently based in Chiang Mai. I came across her Muay Thai blog some time ago and started following her Facebook page too. She fought last Saturday at the Loi Kroh Boxing stadium, and I’m glad I was able to make it. I also got to quickly say hi before her fight.
