An emergency deployment for a flood crisis in Gran Chaco 🇵🇾🇧🇷
Porto Casado, Paraguay, March 2023
In February and March, much of Paraguay got affected with extensive flash floods, and thousands of families lost their homes and livelihoods. If this was not enough, the rains prompted breeding of mosquitos, which is causing an outbreak of Dengue Fever. Thousands of people get sick on daily basis, which makes the flood response and recovery yet more difficult. This album shows images from my emergency deployment to the country (border between Paraguay and Brazil) to determine what assistance we could provide to those needing it.

Winter homecoming 🇵🇱🇪🇺
A gift shop in Krakow, Poland, January 2023
January 2023 brought me to Europe to spend a break with family and friends in Poland, Slovakia, Cyprus and Belgium. Certainly lots of travelling involved and opportunities to take photos for memories for later. This album will feature on pictures from Poland, while pictures from Cyprus, Slovakia and Belgium will be available in another album.

I will keep on updating the album with new photos until the end of January 2023.
Bardejov: the UNESCO World Heritage List Town 🇸🇰🇪🇺
Town Centre, Bardejov, Slovakia, January 2023
A day trip with our friend/neighbour and Mum to Bardejov, just across the border from Poland, in north-eastern Slovakia. Bardejov is one of my favourite towns in Slovakia, and this part of Europe. It is filled with interesting architecture and stunning views. Then there are spas and spring waters around, which just make the place even more special. The town's beauty is recognised by UNESCO, as Bardejov's Old Town is one of the World's Heritage Sites (for more information look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bardejov).
