In one of the many hills of Lisbon stands the city’s Cathedral – Sé de Lisboa. Being the oldest church in Lisbon, it has survived the ages and more than one earthquake and is still there for you to visit!
Sé de Lisboa is Lisbon’s Cathedral and its construction began in the 12th century when the city was reconquered during the crusades by Portugal’s first king. Originally named Church Santa Maria Maior, it is the oldest church in the city.
Try picking a sunny day to visit old beauty – that shouldn’t be difficult at all in Lisbon. You can walk through downtown (Baixa) and then make your way up the hill. Walk on Rua da Conceição and then climb Rua de Santo António and soon you’ll see the cathedral in Largo da Sé. Otherwise you can hop on traditional tram 28 and enjoy the ride.
The cathedral is usually open from 9AM to 7PM and if you are into architecture, you can observe the mixture of styles that results from the church having been being built and rebuilt along the centuries. Also, classical musical concerts are held in the church every now and then, open to the public.
Nearby you can also visit the city’s castle, famous Bairro Alto and several sightseeing spots.
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.
If you visit London in the next few weeks,you might bump into a Paddington Bear sculpture more than once. Don't be alarmed, he's not following you around.

With a camera loaded with Lomography X Tungsten 64 ISO, we went to Palm Springs in June to capture the desert heat and vibes. It was a battle to make it in the 40° scorching sun, and somehow our film survived although it was left baking in the car. So take in these dreamy snapshots of a place where time stands still and the sun always shines.

Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany. With its 3.5 million residents, it is also the second largest city in the European Union.

Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
If you are in search of a lesser known European city full of nice examples of art and architecture, I would recommend that you visit Palermo, the capital of the region of Sicily in the South of Italy.

When visiting Sevilla, there is a place that I think you shouldn't miss. It is not often mentioned in tourist guides, but I found it to be a highlight of the city: The Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo.
When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
