Lomographers Around the World. Barcelona with Cohetesnaranjas

1

What better travel guide than a local friend to get to know a city?! Today Cohetesnaranjas shares with us the best tips ever so that we can make the most of our next visit to Barcelona.

We don’t want to sound hackneyed but… the touristic must-do in Barcelona is:

The Tibidabo, an old amusement park that still keeps its essence and affords the best views over the city.

Once this is done, what museum, gallery, or cultural center should we visit?

The Macba. The building, its location and programme make it my favorite one.

In which area/neighborhood/streets can we enjoy a lovely Lomo-walk?

Mercat del Borne, el Raval, Ciutat Vella o Gracia are good choices to discover the essence of the city. However, to take some pics, Poble Nou is the one I like the most.

We love food tourism! We can’t leave without having tried…? Where?

They aren’t typical from anywhere, but meringues just make my day. Those from Jaume’s patisserie are amazing.

And if we get on the party mood, where should we go?

La Fonoteca Barcelona – always a good excuse to listen to good music. Its concerts usually are either in Begood or Sala Underground. Otherwise el Apolo always is a win. If you prefer small and cozy places, Heliogábal is a good place to go out.

Any souvenir worth putting in the suitcase?

In wawas you can find the best souvenirs of the entire city. Super original. If you are looking for a photographic souvenir, you will find it in La Parada.

Your favorite spot in Barcelona is…

Els Jardins Costa i Llobera. A botanic garden which gives shelter to cactus plants of all shapes and colours.

Which photo do we have to take to be able to say we’ve been to Barcelona?

One of Torre Sant Sebastià and its red baskets that link the harbor with Montjuïc. Undoubtedly, an iconic place.

Thanks a lot to cohetesnaranjas. We are looking forward to visiting Barcelona soon!

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

    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.

    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.

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.
