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. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
Although I can’t say that 2013 was a bad year for us – in fact during the year we have achieved many of the things we’d wished for – when I look back I’m still reluctant to call it a good year. As we began living a semi-nomadic lifestyle, we certainly enjoyed many rewards, but a number of challenges also awaited us along the way. Some of these challenges were so intense that I wasn’t always able to handle them, and in more than one occasion I let myself slip into a negative state of mind. I won’t go into detail, but the good thing is I (we) became stronger and learned some important lessons too.
But I’d rather leave 2013 behind and look ahead. So, here’s a little list of things I want to focus on in the next year, and I hope I can look back at the list one year from now and happily count my achievements 🙂 Read More
