Travel Diary: Transylvania, Romania
 
travel_diary_transylvainia

At the beginning of March, we took a very short but sweet trip to Transylvania, Romania. We didn't know what to expect from our first trip to the home of Dracula, but we have to admit, it excelled our expectations. 

From Berlin you can fly to Cluj, a University city complete with historical buildings and a bustling nightlife. We spent only a day here but it was enough to get a sense of the place and appreciate Romanian city life. We stopped for a coffee in a very hipster style coffee shop, Meron where we enjoyed some fancy pour-over and aero-press coffees. 

We were able to enjoy the nightlife without feeling like the oldest in the bar (it is a student town after all), favourite spot of the night was certainly Booha. Although the London Bar opposite looked to be the most popular amongst the locals. 

Most of the trip was spent in and around the town ( it was huge) of Sibiu, which with it's historical centre is a very charming town. From the clock tower in the centre you can have a 360 view of the entire town with the breathtaking Carpathian mountains in the distance. It is easy to feel that you are in a fairytale in Sibiu, he streets are narrow and the buildings have a very nice charm. It was also fairly easy to get into the countryside within an hour we were able to drive up to the cable car station of Balea Lake. Where in the winter they build an Ice Hotel where one can sleep overnight for a mere €150/night. I tried the beds, they weren't as comfy as I'd like. The snow had covered the lake and it was hard to tell where the land ended and the sky began at times.  

After eating our weight in fried romanian goodness for four days it was time to say ciao to Transylvania. Just a mini trip this time but we will be sure to go back. Soon.

Analgoue Love: Hong Kong

We've been located in London for just over a year now and we ain't going to lie, we be missing Hong Kong. The crazy weather, the friends, the streets. We came across some old shots taken from our time living in the 852 with our analogue gear the other day and we'd thought we'd share.

analoguelove1 It's a well known fact that I love film photography, so many things about it excite me. From taking the photos to the end results (especially the end results) I love the process. I am incredibly fortunate to have many a vintage and new film cameras and I thought I would share some of my images with these here.

First up is my favourite the Pentax K1000. It takes by far the best photos - i LOVE it. I have travelled to many places and captured countless images with this gem. I have used standard 35mm film which gives me gorgeous photos but I also love to shoot with the Lomo Redscale XR 50-200 which at the moment is out of stock - I do hope they make some more. This film is the best for sunny trips to the beach or desert as the colours are saturated and have a dreamier quality than regular film.

I don't shoot nearly as much as I'd like to, must try to change that. Here are some of my favourite images taken on my trusty Pentax.
