When I was a little girl Bourton on the Water was my favourite place to visit and after years of living away from the area I finally got to take my cameras there.
Situated in the heart of the beautiful Cotwolds, England, Bourton on the Water is an almost exclusively yellow Cotswold brick village, which is famous for the picturesque River Windrush that runs through the village adjacent to the High Street. The river is crossed by several low, arched stone bridges allowing visitors to cross to either side.
Due to these arched bridges Bourton on the Water is often referred to as the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, which makes the village extremely popular with tourists in the summer, as you can tell from the photos.
As well as having picnics beside the river and paddling in the water, tourists can also explore the amazing shops and also the local tourist attractions such as the Model Village and Birdland Park and Gardens. I also highly recommend an ice cream from one of the many vendors, it’s the perfect companion (alongside your cameras) for strolling along the river and taking in the surroundings.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.
For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
After years of dreaming, planning, and working, it was finally time for me to fulfill a lifelong wish of mine: to travel around my home country of South Africa at my own pace while living in a camper van.
So Spring has officially sprung! Say hello to brighter and longer days.

Colorsplashing totally changes our mood and the endless possibilities of compositions have never been so fun! Click through to dive into this vibrant and surreal pool after the jump.
During the long nights around Christmas, the China Light Utrecht Festival was held in my hometown. On our visit, I brought my trustworthy Nikon F80 to shoot some pictures. Finally, the rolls came back from the lab recently and I was stunned by the results!
Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
Last year, my wife and I visited the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais close to Lisbon. It was a gorgeous hike from some beautiful ruins to the most western point of the European mainland, Cabo da Roca.
Ever since the Pixelstick came out, I've been dying to try it out. This past week, I finally got my chance!

Take a moment and have a look at these priceless pics!
