The Architecture of Basel, Switzerland

Chrissa and I visited the third largest city of Switzerland, Basel, to explore it's beautiful architecture. The old city centre is full of cute medieval houses and cobbled streets but once you leave the centre the picture changes as there are quite a few pharmaceutical companies based here with their modern headquarters.

Basel is on the boarders of France and Germany and very to Vitra Campus where they design and manufacture stunning furniture. Also every structure on the campus is designed by a renowned architect so it was a must for us to visit.

August in Snowdonia

The late August bank holiday weekend was the perfect opportunity to visit a place we wanted to see since we moved to the UK, Snowdonia National Park. Chrissa, Shoyeb, Dory and I were in one car and Sarah and Lizzie in the other. Michael took a train up and joined us the next day. We rented out a beautiful stone build cottage in the countryside and first thing in the morning went to Zipworld, the fastest zip wire in the world and the longest in Europe. After we flew over the slate quarry we drove to the nearby Fforest Coaster, also by Zipworld and rode the super fun carts through the woods. While at the cottage we passed our time by cooking, eating, drinking and playing games. On day two we started early in the morning to climb the second highest peak of the UK, Mount Snowdon. It was a truly (and literally) breathtaking experience and we enjoyed every second all the way to the top and back down. We also tried to explore as many nice villages we could find. Some of these were, Llanwrst, Portmeiron and Caernarfon. On our drive back to London we stopped by Swallow falls and Pontcysyllte Aquaduct. Big thanks to Sarah for organise it!

Also a big thank you to Zipwold for having us!

June on the Greek Island of Paros

In June of 2017 my girlfriend and I visited the beautiful Island of Paros, Greece where we stayed with some friends and took in the sunshine. This is a collection of my favourite shots from the trip.
