Fairy Tale Location: Langkawi, Malaysia

The Langkawi archipelago in Malaysia has a very relaxed atmosphere, gorgeous beaches, and great nature, which makes it a true fairy tale destination, straight out of your dreams.

Langkawi is an archipelago comprised of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, located some 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. By far the largest of the islands is Pulau Langkawi, with a population of around 64,792. (Source: Wikipedia)

So far, those are the practical information you have to learn about, because all you really need to know is that Langkawi is a true paradise destination, straight out of your dreams. Think of great weather, gorgeous nature, beautiful parks, waterfalls, palm trees, spectacular views, tranquility, cocktails, spontaneous parties and best of it all, great beaches. Spending time here feels like living in a fairy tale.

I stayed on Pulau Langkawi, where I found a lovely little hippie hostel by coincidence. Its owner turned out to be a very old Japanese man who once arrived in Langkawi and immediately decided to change his life and move permanently to the islands. Lots of his guests turned out to have similar stories: they went to Langkawi for a short holiday, but eventually stayed for months or longer. Langkawi has a very relaxed and chilled out atmosphere that is hard to describe, but attracts a lot of people.

Nature lovers will adore Langkawi, which was given a World Geopark status by UNESCO in 2007. Beach, sun or party lovers will love Langkawi as well, because this paradise island has something to offer for everyone. So if you want to feel like you’re in some kind of hippie relaxed fairy tale dreamworld where life is easy, take the airplane or ferry straight to Langkawi. But be aware: you might never come back!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Lantern Slides From the 'Psychic Photography From a New Angle' Series

    Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
