Shoot Your Prophecy Winner Diary: Flyaway

I was over the moon when I saw the email 'You are one of our prophency winners'! I swear my heart skipped a few beats! From that day onwards, I daydreamed of the trip, running through the wardrobe for my summer-fashion-parade in Europe and stocking up on my films!

It was 9 years since I last visited Europe and I was super excited about this, especially as I was going to visit Lomography HQ! I also took the chance to extend my trip to travel around Central Europe – I’ve always wanted to visit, so thank you Lomography for granting my wish!

First Stop: Budapest

Basically, Budapest is split into the Buda side and Pest side, with the Danube river running in between. Together, they form Budapest. There are 3 iconic bridges that connect Buda and Pest, and this is the Elizabeth Bridge – Photo by Flyaway
I took this night shot on the Pest side of the Danube river – Opposite is the scenic Buda side that earned its UNESCO fame. That is the Buda Castle sitting on top of the hill – Photo by Flyaway

After 4 exhausting days of walking-sightseeing, a thermal spa is desperately needed on our last day in Budapest! It is afterall the City of Healing Waters – Photo by Flyaway

Melk Abbey & Krems – Just a few hours outside Vienna

I love Melk Abbey and especially, Krems, a peaceful quaint town.

There was a small arts exhibition held inside a newly built museum within the abbey, and I found a piggy again!! – Photo by Flyaway
Karikaturmuseum in Krems is definitely worth a visit. Many intriguing caricature exhibits inside – Photo by Flyaway
The weather in Krems was the best during my Europe tour – Ice-cream time! – Photo by Flyaway

Vienna – Ffinally!

Such a chic city with a vibrant arts scene, chic people enjoying a high quality of life. Lomo folks in Vienna, I am so chic-fully jealous of you!

Mozart madness in Austria
The very cool head hanging in one of the director’s room. I think this is the head that gives lomography all their quirky ideas! – Photo by Flyaway
