Sardinia | Mining Memories In Montevecchio

Mines, not your average tourist attractions. But instead of beaching yourself on Sardinia’s glitzy northern ‘jet set’ coast, try digging into the -industrial- heritage of the deep south.

Belnahua | A Photo-Artistic Archaeology of a Former Industry

Slate Islands, The Islands That Roofed The World   Sometimes you come across a random island. It seduces you and you become attracted to this seemingly unattainable, but interesting looking stranger. You start a long-distance relationship. And eventually, you wanna see it up close and personal.

Shetland | VOLCANOES

A volcano in Shetland? Well yes, but a very ancient and now extinct one. After all, Shetland has been 3 billion years in the making. Take in the exceptional geological features of Eshaness, Hillswick, Mavis Grind, Keen of Hamar, Foula, Fair Isle… To quote Shetland Heritage Trails: “Journey through an ancient landscape and discover a blast from the past.”

Jersey | Taking a break at the abandoned Pontins Holiday Camp

Pontins Holiday Camp at Plémont Bay first opened in the 1920s and was occupied during the war by the Nazis. This was the first of two holiday camps acquired by Pontins in Jersey (Channel Islands). It was purchased in 1961 for £375,000 (equivalent to over £6 million in today’s money) and was completely rebuilt with all new chalets and buildings. The camp closed at the end of 2000 and was meanwhile lying abandoned and derelict, but the are will be re-wilded in the future.

Lanzarote & Fuerteventura | VOLCANOES

I’ve got the hots for volcanoes. And in a next life I will probably be a geologist. Follow me on a geo-field trip around the Canarian island of Lanzarote. I also island-hopped to Fuerteventura. Well, to Isla de Lobos more specifically. A little black & white gem, made of so-called hornitos and sand.
