Tibidabo is one of the highest hills surrounding the city of Barcelona (512 m) and is still very close to it to have one of the greatest views over the whole city. There is also a little attraction park, but more meant for children than to adults. You have also the great church of "Sagrat Chor" dominating the hill and not far from there the Colserrola Tower and the different tv and radio networks antennas.

The whole trip to Tibidabo canbe achieved with public transport, first the metro to go full north until avenida Tibidabo (L7), then you change for an antique and charming old tramway called the “Tramvia Blau” and climbing the hill to 350m.
Finally, you must take the “Funicular” that brings you on the top of the mountain. And than, just hold on your breath because you are discovering a great viewpoint over the whole area of Barcelona!! You can admire the view, but also visit the church and the park, and make beautiful and romantic ballads, with your girl- or boyfriend, or your camera, or both if she/he isn’t jealous about your Lomogarphic virus…. ;))) Just enjoy! :)
There is a weekend in New York where the city streets look like an alternate universe, full of fantastic characters and people who seem to have walked out of a comic book or a movie. This weekend is the NY Comic Con weekend and people from everywhere come to one of the biggest comic convention to be part of one of the biggest Cosplay competitions.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.

The Algarve region in the south of Portugal attracts tourists from all over Europe all year round.

Come and see the Costa Vicentina, a diamond on Portugal's southwest coast.

Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>
