Fast Forward, Year 2022

February 25, 2023

The idea of having this “fast forward” has been haunting me for a while.

“It’s approaching the end of the year, it will be nice to have something that summarizes 2022, workloads won’t be too much, mostly just picked one photos or two for each month, then write something about them.”, I thought.

After an unexpectedly surprising (in both good and bad ways) January and February, I finally come back to this. Preparing for the fast forward is pretty cool. It kind of feels like playing those card games, you have an array of good cards but you can only play a few of them. How would you strategically make the choice?

This sounds too geeky, isn't it?

Anyway, I will arrange 24 photos that carry special meanings here, in chronological order.


2022/01/01. Uetliberg, Zurich, Switzerland

I traveled to Switzerland 🇨🇭 for the first time, and had my new year here. The new year celebration was to go up to a hill called Uetliberg next to the city of Zurich, watching the firework over the city from above. I had a few shots of the firework. I also had fresh memory of people around me exclaiming "Es ist groß" (it is large, in German), with the characteristic Swiss German 'r' sound. But what's a bit more worth sharing might be this one -- after the firework, the crowds flood to the train station waiting for the first train taking them down the hill back home.

2022/01/02. Glacier Express, Switzerland

Hardly can I anticipate that I would spend the new year of 2023 in the same country as well.

In the rest of my vacation, I traveled through the not-so-large country on the train. The landscape was definitely breathtaking.


2022/02/25. Vienna, Austria


2022/03/19. Danube Canal, Vienna, Austria

Vienna is a really chill and walkable city. I still remember March was a stressful month for me. Walking around the city was one of the best things I could do back then. Drinking with friends on the side of the canal carries much more attitudes beyond a nice weekend fun thing.
