[MACAU] oo5. COAST TO COAST

“To wander is to be alive.” ― Roman Payne, Europa You know how I’m always excited by the sea. Give me a beach vacay anyday! But in Macau, the coast would suffice. These might not have been the best pictures to represent the best days of my life. xoxo, Viktoria Jean

[MACAU] oo4. THE ISLAND IN 20 PICS

Let me take you on a tour of the nondescript: things you won’t see unless on foot, plowing through the city. “It all takes time and lessons and places, but I’m learning to listen to my restless heart, telling me to “go, go, go!” ― Charlotte Eriksson, Another Vagabond Lost To Love: Berlin Stories There you […]

[MACAU] oo3. HORSING AROUND

We regret to interrupt your regularly scheduled travelogue… …to present you with a series of horses… horsing around. In the chinese zodiac I’m born in the year of the horse   I couldn’t resist. Reporting live from Macau Tower! Jean, out! xoxo, Viktoria Jean

[MACAU] oo2. RUINS OF ST. PAUL’S | MUSEUM OF MACAU

Tourists are so darn easy to sniff out. If you’ve been to Macau, you’d know the Ruins of St Paul’s (大三巴牌坊) but a one-sided wall, completely demolished and naked in the back. So the first-timers (like us) would still clamour for pictures with the famed 16th-century complex, an official UNESCO World Heritage Site. 68 steps […]

The Love Lockdown

Couples lock down their vows over the Eiserner Steg in Germany, which stands proud over River Main linking Frankfurt’s city centre to the district of Sachsenhausen. Another lover’s bridge marked with everlasting passion symbolized by the act of locking with a sense of resilient security and firm, unyielding permanence. The irony of these very metal […]

[THAILAND] oo8.CoCo Tam’s Bar, Koh Samui

Day beds, bean bags, egg chairs, shishas and the island’s most varied selection of cocktails on the beachfront: there’s nothing not to love about CoCo Tam’s Bar. The music was sooo good we had to ask the bartenders for their playlist! Ideal for after-dinner chillout drinks, we took a short walk here from H Bistro […]

Island Life: Maldives

Blogging from the island of Samet, Thailand, and I’m dying show y’all pictures of the sun, sand and sea! This would have to wait till I’m back in civilisation. For the moment, my Maldives pictures would have to suffice. Cheers everybody and have a great week ahead! ❤ xoxo, Viktoria Jean

Rathaus Glockenspiel, Munich

What comes to mind when you think of Munich? Longchamp and Rimowa!! And well, for me it’s the Marienplatz clock tower. This grandeur never fails to give me the chills! My goal next year is to photograph the Rathaus Glockenspiel in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. So far, I’ve only done Summer and Autumn. xoxo, […]

[THAILAND] oo2.Island Lovin’

Headed for Thailand’s Koh Samui with my favourite travel pals in exactly 3 days’!! ❤ So stoked about scuba-diving, and living the island life in my friends’ resort. Also can’t wait to start partying at the local hotspots on Chaweng Beach. On our last trip to Koh Samet, another offshore party island in the Gulf of Thailand, […]

Sunset at Swan River

Slow and romantically lone walk along the Swan River waterfront overlooking South Perth.  Sea breeze and its accompanying calm did wonders for the incessant noise in my head, as did the pull of my heart in various messy directions. Loving the bright blue skies, crystal seas and its zen. This is nature at its best; […]

Swan Bells at Sunset

18 bells hanging in a 82.5m high campanile; The Bell Tower is breathtaking at sunset! Whoever says Perth is boring needs to visit these mind-blowing places. Based on the number of times I’ve been here this year, it’s almost my second home.

Photo-diary: I’m in love…with Kurumba Maldives!

Unbolt your main door and this is what you see This world is all kinds of amazingIt’s positively exhilarating to know that the beauty of Maldives is right at your doorstep Complete with sea breeze and utter, remote peace. I’ll always be in love with the skies and the sea. One of my favourite spots: […]

From Milan to Venice

Fresh off a 12-hour flight to Milan, we hopped onto a three-hour railway tram into Venice. Grabbed lunch at the train station And off we go Our stop: Santa Lucia Buon Giornata, Venezia One of their prime, very beautifully hand-crafted, tourist rip-offs which are too elegant and gorgeous to look at to be of much […]

Psychoanalysis of Strangers

We all derive false impressions upon first sight. I see an old lady with a jewellery pushcart and think how pitiable to be working at her age. She must be terribly in need of money, or perhaps her children have left her. My mind goes wild thinking of possibilities to define her situation. Don’t we […]

Maldives – Bandos Island Resort

Sun, sand, sky, sea – recipe for indulgences. And thus the three of us decided to go chasing dolphins in the setting sun! Maldives is indeed the perfect getaway. Self-shot with Jocelyn, Brenda and He-Cui. My hair was especially yummy that day, with a tinge of sea-salt. The awesome crew! And thus our journey to […]

Auckland May 2013

We had a longer staycation in the capital of New Zealand where the sun sets at 5 late afternoon and it’s comfortably cold without needing heavy coats. Some visual simulation of Auckland’s big city sophistication as captured from my lenses… here we go!

[THAILAND] oo1. ISLAND AND THE CITY (Bangkok – Ko Samet)

The minute our home-bound aircraft took off, I missed Bangkok already. Even with my infected tummy hurting so badly from seafood poisoning, the land of a thousand smiles can’t shake me off. Thailand, I will be back!! The amount of insane things we did on this trip was kept to a minimal We capped it […]

it doesn’t interest me…

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for […]
