Mykey Takes Europe

Sydney based photographer and general vagabond Mykey recently got together a group of mates to tackle the age-old Australian tradition of Euro-tripping. The group steadily made their way through a succession of countries, leaving a trail of good times and sore heads in their wake. Mykey was nice enough to share some highlights of the trip with us, so until next time here’s a quick fix from where you’d rather be.

At the start of the year over a few beers myself and a few mates decided our pipe dreams of long days and later nights somewhere north of the equator should well exist. After some long hauls at a call center in Surry Hills and a lot of two minute noodles we finally got off to Europe in early June, and I managed to grab a couple of photos along the way.

2

Our first stop was Paris where the locals greeted us with open arms.

3

After spending a bunch of time in and under the city we jumped down to a few spots on our way east.

4

We quickly became pretty familiar with trying to catch up on sleep on train rides, all the while trying to catch as much of what was around us as possible.

5

Accompanying that was a pretty basic diet of kebabs, frozen pizza and cheap booze.

6

Milan was pretty insane just in terms of its graffiti culture.

7

Venice wasn't as interesting for us but it was a lot of fun to poke around in for a day or two.

8

Budapest had some of the cheapest food shopping we'd seen all over, it also had a notorious relationship with a particular kind of moonshine.

I really like this photo, but I’m not entirely sure why. 

10

The forest areas of Germany were pretty interesting, to say the least.

11

We managed to get a good look in at the highest point in Berlin, which was an old abandoned spy station.

12

A friend’s birthday in an apartment in Berlin.

13

Our bodies copped it for a few days after that.

14

It was interesting to see the names you hear about all over the internet in the flesh, this was in Amsterdam.

15

Some graff on a submarine in North Amsterdam from the ferry, there was a Nekst piece on the other side but I'm yet to develop that roll.

16

This was the flat we essentially squatted in in London for a few days.
