Travelling Myanmar Solo with Black & White Film – By Jelle Vonk

My unexposed rolls of film, put together in a plastic zip bag ready to pass through security. ‘These cannot go through the scanner’ I said firmly. No problem at all, just wait here sir, a few moments later we were trough without any problems. This was the start of my trip, travelling solo to Myanmar.Taking my first longer solo trip felt like a bit of a challenge. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to rely purely on myself, in a completely different country in a complete different environment. Of course I was nervous, but I was also excited. Thrilled to the adventure, the unknown but also ready to expose my 11 rolls of black and white film.
