365 Project – Week 11

Hello, my loves! <3 I know I know, this post is super late. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to share my self-portraits. I’ve been in a creative slump and it’s giving me a hard time. These are the photos from one month ago, partly taken during my trip in Paris. Gosh, I’m so glad it’s over. And yeah, I know two photos are missing – I haven’t been able to bring myself to publish them yet :/ I hope you enjoy...

365 Project – Week 3

Last week was very emotional. Seven days full of tears and stress, but also happiness and laughter. Saying goodbye to my love, meeting my new classmates, seeing my old friends..

Spring At The Ligurian Sea

I did it. It’s over. The portfolio is handed in and the pressure is gone, there’s nothing I can do about it anymore. The first thing I do afterwards is fleeing from the known and plunge into a new environment, meeting the lovely blogger Italian Hurricane. Ciao Italia. It’s good to see you again. My doomed relationship with my ex started here three years ago. It sparked between limoncello and a long train ride through the beautiful landscape between Naples and Milan. Luckily, it didn’t leave...

Saving A Friendship In Bangkok

September 2015 How far would you go to save a friendship? After some back and forth that included a spontaneous trip to Manila, it finally works out: I’d meet up with my Burmese friend in Bangkok – as a compromise between Yangon and Singapore, where I’m staying for a couple of weeks. We met two years ago at a beach party in Singapore and subsequently got closer through Facebook – thanks to his insomnia and the fact that I, living in Switzerland, was the...
