TRAVEL | PHOTOGRAPHER

I can’t say that in my life I’ve been too concerned about the environment. It feels like there is always something else to be concerned about. But it seems to become more of a prominent topic since I’ve left the big cities, where nature is practically absent or at the very least very contained. ⠀ When I live in Asia, I see how people here are way more connected with nature, they just live among it a lot more than what average europeans are used to. I live a lot more connected to nature here, too. Not in any spiritual way, and I don’t do anything to achieve it, it’s just a reality. Here I’m surrounded by animals in my everyday life, not just on a safari. Peacocks and monkeys make noise on the roof of the house when I wake up in the morning, huge reptiles pass me in the garden, minding their own business, crabs do a funky dance when I look down from the rock at the ocean. ⠀ Maybe because of this closeness, now I notice trash a lot more and take it more to heart. Everyone who’s been to Bali knows about their trash problem (it’s probably the biggest lie about Bali blogging, not showing all that upsetting trash). Sri Lanka seems to have it a lot better, but even here, in the secluded spot in the middle of a national park, you find a decomposing plastic bottle, brought in by the river. Now, that really grabs the attention. ⠀ How do you feel about it? ⠀ #easternwesterntravels #yalanationalpark #srilanka

Buffalos of the Yala National Park. ⠀ One of the many animals we observed during our rides around the park with @leopardtrails. It’s very beautiful to see animals roam around freely, feeding, playing and chilling in a puddle on a hot day. I think I have taken enough pictures during this trip that could start up a new (5th) account of Instagram 😂 Would you subscribe? ⠀ #easternwesterntravels #safari #yalanationalpark #srilanka

My brain is exploding! What an experience! ⠀ For the next few days this account will be occupied by tons of pictures from Yala National park that I’m visiting with @leopardtrails. This is the best thing I’ve done in Sri Lanka so far (and my last 4 months here were not boring, I can tell you that!). ⠀ It is an incredible experience that I can recommend to anyone who comes to the island! Meditative driving through absolutely beautiful nature, seeing all these wild animals.. What can I say. Just go to my stories now and see for yourself! ⠀ #easternwesterntravels #yalanationalpark #srilanka

Feel very romantic today. I guess the next step after spending some quality time with yourself, is appreciating the ones next to you. Humans, and animals as well. ⠀ Nico is such a dog person, he cannot let a cute dog pass without a pat. I’m crazy for cats, no kitty can run by me without being cuddled. At least I will attempt to cuddle it. Cats are agile! ⠀ I think for the time we’ve been together, we both grew to appreciate the other’s kind of “favourite pet”. Did you have it too with your partner, or you were lucky to love the same pets in the first place? ⠀ #easternwesterntravels #srilanka

On the importance of solitude. ⠀ Go for a walk alone, sit in a park or on the beach, take a notebook and draw something silly, take a book you have been putting away for months. Look at the leaves, waves, clouds. Forget your phone at home. They can do without you for a few hours. ⠀ 🌊 ⠀ Do you like to be alone? ⠀ #srilanka #tangalle

Gone for too long without sunset here. This might create an illusion that this is not happening on our planet, every day. Just look and enjoy it, wherever you are. ⠀ #easternwesterntravels still #srilanka 💙

I think I’m addicted to pool photoshoots now. ⠀ After trying to float the first time during my shoot couple of months back (the one in the red dress), which wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, I’ve kept coming back to try different techniques and styles in the pool. Shot one or two mermaids myself, to see the other side of the picture - the photographer’s challenges for a shoot like that. ⠀ Then me and @gadabout.js made this cool photo. We didn’t have a drone this time, but I think it made for even more unusual and eery shot. How do you like it? 😃We’d love to hear some feedback! ⠀ Coolest swimwear outfit by @rumpunch_resortwear 💙 ⠀ #srilanka #poolshootexperiments #whosaiditseasytobeamodel

Hi from Sri Lanka! It is still a beautiful, tropical country with extremely friendly and welcoming people. Follow your country’s travel advise and hopefully soon you will be able to visit it again, it’s a wonderful place with so much to offer ♥️ ⠀ I will be telling and showing a bit more of my journey very soon, been a little busy with my work lately. ⠀ #easternwesterntravels #tangalle #srilanka

When we just met in Bali, @gadabout.js was making fun of me traveling with too much stuff, including a mandolin. Just a few travels later.. guess who’s cute ukulele I’m posing with in this photo? 😁 ⠀ backyard of @thewalattahouse photo by @gadabout.js#easternwesterntravels #tangalle #srilanka
