Deep blue ocean water, smooth rocks and stunning nature awaits you in Göteborg's southern archipelago.
Göteborg’s southern archipelago is made out of 30 major islands, many of them with permanent residents… Approximately a 25 min ride with tram no. 11 from Gothenburg city centre you’ll find the end station ‘Saltholmen’ where 3 different ferry lines depart every hour and you can use your tram ticket on the ferries within 90mins from buying the ticket. Each ferry makes a number of stops at different islands before turning around and going back the same way. The archipelago serves you a stunning view with its super-smooth rocks, deep blue ocean water, beautiful flowers and picturesque houses. This is where the residents of Gothenburg go to relax in the sun, swim in the ocean and forget all about the stressful city life for a while.
Due to the famous Swedish ‘Allemansrätten’ and laws of coast protection, most parts of the Swedish coast line (and even the private islands) are accessible and free to enter. This means you have a good chance of finding your own spot if you’re looking for some solitude. Bring wine and a picnic for a romantic day/evening with your lover or fill your bags to the brim with beer, meat and a single-use barbecue for a water splashing fun-day with your best friends.

Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once?

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.
Instant gratification filled the air with the launch of the much-awaited Lomo'Instant. Drinks and live music flowed for friends and family, making it an even more joyous celebration. Check out the Lomo'Instant in action at the NYC Gallery Store.
