Monika A. has emailed to tell us a bit more about her Camera 93, which later this week will be making the mammoth journey to an Everest Basecamp in Nepal. We asked her about the trip she is making.
The Project: So where is the camera currently?
Monika A: Burgdorf near Hanover, Germany
DMP: And why are you going to Everest?
Monika: Generally I am very interested in foreign countries, their landscape and the people who live there. That’s why I love to travel.
Nepal – and especially the himalayas – is a destination that on the one hand I always wanted to visit – on the other hand I wasn’t sure if I would ever manage to get there.
When Jon and Chris (my significant other) decided to organize a trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal as a photography and videography workshop it was clear for me that this would my opportunity to be part of a unique experience.
Did I mention that I am very passionate about photography? This journey is a great chance to combine both hobbies as the trek will offer the environment to take all kinds (and lots!!) of photographs. I am really looking forward to receiving many many new impressions, which may also push my photography to a new level.
DMP: How can we follow your journey?
Monika: You can get trek updates (on a probably daily basis) on http://netvibes.com/everesttrek
DMP: We’ll be following you closely, and best of luck!
Monika: Thanks – keep your fingers crossed that I don’t get altitude sick
You can read more about the project at http://www.everesttrek2009.com/ and of course, we’ll be charting its progress on our own Camera 93 page.
Good luck to Monika and the rest of the team. This may be our most amazing camera drop yet!
