Photographs of an Unwritten Future: Geo's signature B&W exhibition

During your journey around the world, you're going to meet
loads of different people in bars, cafes, hostels & even while asking
for directions to the main train station.  Of course, all of this depends upon
the ever so popular question: "What type of backpacker are you?"
The networking type or the quiet kid in the corner looking at pictures
of the past while wondering what [ The Point of Travelling ]
photography exhibition is really about.    -Geo!

The Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg, Sweden

A selection of PHOTOhype images will be on display
in Gothenburg, Sweden at the Museum of World Culture from
April 29th until December 2011. [ Destination X ] is a multi-media group

The Journey Is the Destination - Dan Eldon, UK
The PHOTOhype Project is
your sneak peak into the awe
inspiring world of backpackers
& hostel travellers.  Just like
the title reads on the book
about the late photographer,
[ Dan Eldon ] "The Journey
is the Destination."

13 years of  PHOTOhype, imagine that!
I can still remember when I first started this
photo project in 1997 with Surf City Hostel &
a handful of backpackers in [ Hermosa Beach ].
We have journeyed pretty far since that humble
beginning, which presents a deeper meaning
& insight behind [ The Point of Travelling ].

In total, the project was based in five different
cities within the last 13 years.  The All-American
scene of [ Hermosa Beach ].  Viva, [ Las Vegas ].
The laid back lifestyle in [ San Diego ].  The quiet
romantic beauty of [ Bruges ] & now the endless
nightlife adventures & classic drama tales inside a
historic Polish city known as [ Krakow ].  We just
started our infamous 5th year in Krakow, Poland
which makes me wonder if I've seen the end of
PHOTOhype's so-called city hopping ways.

luxury hotel deals in Marrakech, Morrocco

Fancy hotels & frequent
air travel were once beyond
the normal bank balance of
independent travellers and
backpackers.  Now, that has
all changed - and just like the
Ryanair or EasyJet revolution,
it seems you can't quite resist
that [ luxury hotel deal ] with
the cool design or relaxing
SPA treatment in the lounge.
For the same price of a private
room at a regular youth hostel, you can instead live
the life of a [ Flashpacker ] - tech-savvy adventurers
who often prefer to travel in style. Equipped with a
mobile phone, digital camera, iPod and laptop. These
new age backpackers prefer to treat themselves when
affordable opportunities arise. However, to be truly
labeled as a "flashpacker" is mainly the choice
of someone's own [ Travel Intelligence ].
