A lot of people believe that living in a small place has no advantages. I am from Huesca, and even though I live in Zaragoza, I can't get my little city out of my head. And what do I do when I want to escape to the outskirts? I take the car and go to the border. That's the good side of living within spitting distance of the Pyrenees.
I believe a lot of people think Zaragoza is better than Huesca (and I’m not getting into that), but we have lots of nice things in the Altoaragonese capital (an article is on its way!). And without a doubt, one of my favourites is how close the Pyrenees are from the city.
When I go back to my parents’ home for a weekend, I remember what it is like to open your bedroom window in the morning and see the mountains in the background (with a lot of snow in winter). And being able to spend the day with friends in any river 15 minutes from the city (mountain rivers).
But one of the things I like the most is taking my car and arriving at the border in a short while. I don’t know why I like the border so much, I guess it’s because my parents used to take me and my brother there on the weekends in a “quick trip” way, and we would go back home very happy for having been to France.
If you go in winter, as is logical, the border is filled with snow and we usually take the sleigh in the car and go down a hillside a few times.
But in winter and summer it’s totally different. The ski pistes are full with grazing cows, and all the green is beautiful.
So as a short trip I recommend it to anyone who likes mountains and nature.
I live in the North of Italy, near the border with Switzerland. I love to cycle in Swiss territory, because their car traffic is lower than in Italy and because there are nice bicycle paths free of cars and motorbikes. In this article I'll show you a nice three-day bicycle path that I cycled last summer. Take a look after the jump!
It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.
Between the end of July and the beginning of August this year, I traveled around Spain, from Barcelona to Gibraltar, then up to Toledo and again down to Zaragoza. With photos fresh from the lab, I'll show you the wonderful architecture of the City of The Arts and Sciences of Valencia in this article. Take a look after the jump!

This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
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!
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
