Deighton cup 2014 was amazing! Not only was the event filled with awesome people dressed in 1920’s style fashions but there was delicious food by Cocktails and Canapes and great musical entertainment too. This is my second time going to Deighton cup and some how it’s good every year. Maybe it’s because they always pick days with excellent weather or maybe it’s the type of people the event draws. Either way you look at it, what a great day to be in Vancouver!

You don’t have to be a magician to preform the art of weightless levitation. In this photo shoot I was inspired by Natsumi Hayashi. Natsumi is a Japanese Photographer who has been advancing the art of levitation photography for over 4 years with out the aid of Photoshop.

If you’re wondering how it’s done, the effect is achieved by snapping pictures mid jump. If you’re relaxed while jumping you will appear to be floating in the air. If you are thinking about attempting levitation photography, make sure to check out Natsumi’s site Yowayowa Camera woman for tips and tricks. It might seem a bit silly when doing it but afterwards the photos usually display bolt effects. Give it a try!

My last destination in #Travels2Europe is Budapest. The Hungarian capital Budapest was really two cities separated by the Danube River. The two cities Buda and Pest, merged together in 1873 making it the largest city in the European Union.

One of the things I love about Budapest is the classic architecture. The city is fill with arches, symmetry and domes dating back to the 1800’s. If you are visiting for the first time like myself I would suggest eating at the local favorite Spíler. Spíler is Located in the Gozsdu district which is one of Budapest biggest attractions.

This was my first time being in Germany so I decided to clean up with a traditional Turkish shave and head out on the town to discover the city. Along the way I took a snapshot at the Berlin Wall, and drank some traditional German beers with friends.

Being in Berlin during the World Cup was an exciting time. Every four years German soccer enthusiasts all come together to support of their favorite team at the Hyundai Fan Park public aka ‘Fan Mile‘. The Fan Mile, has huge LED screens measuring up to almost 200 hundred feet in height so fans always get the best possible view of the game. I feel bless to have been a part of such a popular world event!

Istanbul is now one of my favorite places to visit because of its rich history and mixed influence of cultures. Turkey is located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, which makes it a country of rich and diverse foods. To be honest, Istanbul has some of the best street food I’ve ever tasted. Foods like simit, kabaps, watermelon, chestnuts and fresh roasted corn on the cob were some of my favorite.

Visitors can get around very easily by tram and metro connection, but I recommend walking by foot to take photos of the beautiful scenery. Prices on pretty much everything are inexpensive and if you shop at certain markets you can barter on prices getting an even better deal on your purchases.

I recommend:
Trying Turkish tea
Touring the Blue Mosque
Eating local Kabob
Visit Taksim Square
Visit Bosphorus
Visit the Grand Bazar
