Travel Throwback #8: Garmisch


For my throwback this week I share another polorid photo from my childhood.  This one was taken by my dad on a camping trip he took my sister and I on one summer.  We were at a campsite in Germisch, Germany.  I had just learned how to cook a dinner of veggies and meat in foil over the BBQ at scouts and was ‘showing my dad’ how to do it. 😉  I think another great aspect of this photograph is the fashion my sister and I are wearing from the early 90’s.

I still love taking pictures with Polaroid film.
For me, it offers the most beautiful way of capturing reality

Q: Have you been to Garmisch, Germany?

It is hard to have a bad meal when traveling in Thailand with the different flavourable tastes and wide variety of vegetables and fruit from the region in south east Asia. Continue reading
