Why it is a good idea to take your bike on your next lomo-tour?
Ride your bicycle; it’s not only more fun, but it’s also healthier and good for the environment. And, it’s unbelievably useful to take the bike when you’re on a lomo-tour. You can complete relatively long distances in a short time, while you have the choice to stop whenever you like; whenever you see an interesting subject.
With the bicycle, you are flexible and independent. In the city, or in the countryside, you can reach your destination fast and in a relaxed manner. On the way there you can already shoot a lot of stuff, as you like. Actually everybody knows that taking the bike is not only good for your own body, but also for the environment. But sometimes laziness overcomes us. Fight your weaker self and pedal! Then you’ll remember the nice feeling of the summer wind blowing through your hair.

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
