Whenever you come you Thessaloniki / Greece you have to pay a visit to the White Tower.
It´s a monument and museum on the waterfront of the city of Thessaloniki, which is the capital of the region of Macedonia and the second biggest city in Greece. This tower has seen a lot over the years. Build around 1430 by Sultan Murad II and his Ottomans was used as a fort, garrison and a prison. In 1826 there was a big massacre of the prisoners in the tower and his name changed from the White Tower in “The Tower of Blood”.
In 1912, the tower was whitewashed as a symbol of cleansing and acquired his present name again. During the Worldwar 2, the tower was used to store food for the German soldiers. As I said, these walls saw a lot of things in the past but now it becomes one of the most famous sightseeing spots in Thessaloniki. It also houses a Byzantine museum and is one of the Antiquities of the Greek Ministry of Culture.
Around the tower there is a lot of stuff going on. A lot of tourists and teenagers use it as a hangout spot…..you can see skateboarders doing their Kick flips and Heelies under the statue of Alexander the Great and you can start trips into the Aegean Sea from there…. It´s definitely worth to check it, get some ice cream or one of the famous Greek coffee specialties and enjoy the sun…
Leuven is a typical Belgian university city that is full of students, but feels a bit like a ghost city when all the students go home for the weekend. Nevertheless, this is the perfect time to pay a visit to this beautiful historic city just right next to Brussels. If you like culture, cobblestoned streets, creativity, and Belgian beers, this is your perfect day trip!

Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!

I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
