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.

May in Malta

Chrissa’s colleague Francesca was getting married in Malta so we used the wedding as an excuse to explore a new country. The first day we went on a vintage bus tour around the island and met everyone who would be at the wedding (around our age). The next morning we went for a quick dive before attending the lovely wedding and super fun reception and after party. On day three we drove up north to see Popeye Village, the film set for the 80’s movie and then took a ferry across to Comino Island to swim in the famous Blue Lagoon. On our last day we visited the Rotunda of Mosta, a Roman Catholic parish church in Mosta, Malta, dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. Then we took the ferry to Gozo Island and had a swim at Rahmla Bay before visiting Calypsos Cave with its stunning view. Then we made our way to where the world famous Azure Window used to be for another dive.
