Rhodes, Greece
April 1986







The gate of St. Paul to the old city of Rhodes.







Due to circumstances in 2020 and 2021 whereby people throughout Europe were restricted with traveling abroad, I decided to take a look at some of my older travels of the past. This by lack of better and other opportunities to travel. These travels are the ones predating the digital era. In other words; the travels from which you print you photos on paper and from negatives! A concept when compared by current standards quite outdated!


Al the images there for are digitalized paper photographs that came out of photo books. These digitalized photographs are obviously not the best of quality. I also do not remember exactly where we went, when we went and the names of the places we visited, with the exception of a few. It has been such a long time ago. Therefore it is more like a revitalized memory with photographs compared to the other travel journals.

It is a bit like trying to re-live the old travels, do a bit of reminiscing over times gone by and more importantly; keeping yourself busy. I am hereby confronted with the out dated looks of a considerably younger version of me.


Oh dear, how sad, never mind!
