MOVIE: Time off

Two questions I often get in my time off are: “Do you still have your apartment?” and “What do you do during your time off, go on a holiday?”  The answer to the first question is a clear yes. The less time I spent at home, the more I value my place. Even during a relatively short break during the season, it is a good feeling to come home really and have all my personal things around me.

The answer to the second question is also a yes. Even though I love being home during my breaks, it is also nice to go on holidays. I do travel a lot for work and see many interesting places and have lots of opportunities to take pictures and film, but it is still work. So during those breaks, I also travel sometimes, either to visit people or to go on holidays.


During my current break, I went with Ruben to Poland. We picked a small stream in the northern parts of the country, the Brda. For a week we canoed on it, from the origin where it was just a little forest stream, through extensive bogs and fields of reed and ended in a big lake. Very relaxing and lovely to be really out in nature for almost a week.

For those interested, here the movie I made of this trip, with my first drone footage…
