Veracruz Aquarium

2

One of the first stops of my summer road trip through South-eastern Mexico. This place is quite big, cool, and impressive (and they have crazy coloured jellyfish)

The Veracruz Aquarium is located in Veracruz (kind of obvious, isn’t it?) a beautiful city in the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
This is one of the main aquariums of Latin America, in it you will find lots of species from both fresh and salty water. They have a fishtank (a BIG fishtank) with cute, chubby manatees; another one full of sharks, one with turtles, some with goldfish or little fluorescent fish and there’s one huge, fantastic fishtank that goes around one huge room with sharks, stingrays, and big fish to which you enter through a tunnel under the fishtank (That’s fantastic, you get to see sharks and stingrays swimming ABOVE you)

You can also swim with sharks (but I didn´t get to do that because it didn’t fit in my budget since it was one of the many stops of a road trip I made this summer with a couple of friends) Basically this is a great fun place to visit (specially if you like fish or have children).

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.

    Seeing Manila in a Whole New Light

    I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    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.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
