My dear friend Grazie suggested to me one fantastic and I think very helpful theme for the series: What to see and visit in Prague when you have only three days. This is my suggestion for the first day. I hope it will help and inspire you!
It is great to start your first day in Prague with some good food, so let’s have a brunch at Modry Beranek Restaurant in Karlin, Thamova street. It offers great selection of breakfast meals from croissants, tasty marmalades, musli with milk, or more typical Czech breakfasts with baked rolls, scrambled eggs and bacon. All you need is to choose from the wide selection. You can be sure that you get good quality food, because the main suppliers are Czech farmers, so everything is fresh and healthy.
After this tasty breakfast, you have enough strength and energy to walk a lot the whole day. So along the river you may try to catch and shoot some seagulls and swans, find your way to the Old Town Square to be in front of the famous tower and clock exactly at the whole hour, watching this typical tourist attraction and being squeezed in the crowd of tourists. Then, go back to the river and up the hill to spend some great time at the castle and its surroundings. Don’t forget to catch the changing of guards at 12 o’ clock.
Your next move might be catching the nostalgic old tram to have a special sightseeing and get out at the Namesti Republiky. From there you can easily get to Petrska Square and enjoy either vegan meals at Loving Hut or Italian meals at Alforno Restaurant. Lunch may be followed by the best Prague’s coffee from Miguel Caffe and then some shopping. Finish your day with some drinks and party hard at Chapeau Rouge at Jakubska street or if you like more the rock music to get you into mood, try Harley’s Bar at Dlouha street.
Previously, I suggested that you walk around Ubud. For he second part of my Lomography Day Trip piece on Ubud, allow me to show you places that are worth visiting. Don't worry, you won't get lost! If you do want to get lost, just rent a bicycle and ride around!
This sunny season is not only for long road trips and days spent at the beach. Invite your friends to a spectacular day at summer fairs and snap fantastic, surreal photographs like this winning Photo of the Day by gakurou!
Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!
Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
Here's the third and final part of my Lomography Day Trip features about Ubud. To be honest, there are a lot of places there that are worth visiting, but I just picked some of them to help you make the best of your trip. So prepare your notes or travel books and take note of the must-see places that I'll mention below. Maybe one day you'll visit Ubud.
Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
