I visited Mendocino on the coast of California. It was beautiful and "quirky".
Mendocino is a town on the coast of California. The water is too cold to go swimming without a wet suit, but the views are spectacular. Mendocino was the site for much of the filming (yes film) of the T.V. show “Murder She Wrote”. In the show it was a fishing village on the east coast of the United States, but it was Mendocino on the west coast that was used to shoot the exterior scenes. Now that we’ve visited Mendocino, my wife and I will point out the little houses that we remember from the visit when we see them on the show.
Marijuana is legal for medicinal purposes in California and you can spot lots of medicated people on the streets of this small, funky town. Lots of the shops cater to the laid-back hippie residents and visitors looking for that funky northern California vibe. We stayed the night at a charming bed and breakfast and had some excellent grilled Oysters Rockefeller purchased from a street vendor who could barely keep up with the demand.
We had a great time, and we were disappointed that we couldn’t spend at least one more day there.
After a couple of days in Mendocino, we headed back to Lake County and passed through Point Cabrillo on the way but that’s for the next installment.
Last year, my wife and I visited the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais close to Lisbon. It was a gorgeous hike from some beautiful ruins to the most western point of the European mainland, Cabo da Roca.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
In the third and final installment of his Russian love story, Herr Willie recalls some of the most memorable experiences from his trips to post-Soviet Russia, including traveling aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway and shooting with the La Sardina for Lomography on assignment, and waxes nostalgic about all the amazing people he had met.
The true adventurer finds beauty in every place even under unfavorable circumstances. Here, i_am_four-eyes lists down the reasons traveling to Nepal during the rainy season is just as memorable as visiting during peak season.
My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.
One of the things that make a trip to a far-flung place truly memorable is getting the chance to interact with the locals and share fun moments with them. Five years ago, disdis was able to do exactly that on a trip to Zinguinchor, Senegal, and it goes without saying that it was most certainly one for the books.
It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.
