  • Manila Chinatown: The World's Oldest

    Manila Chinatown: The World's Oldest
    It's Chinese New Year. Ongpin Street the main thoroughfare of Manila Chinatown is a traffic jam of shoppers weighed downed by their bags of tikoy (rice cake), ube hopia (taro pastry), and ma chang (meat-filled sticky rice). Despite their heavy load, they continue to jostle, crane their necks and chirpily browse the sidewalks of trinket hawkers bargaining jade amulets, bracelets, and good luck charms in Fukien-accented Tagalog. Goldsmiths, vegetable vendors and traditional medicine sellers soon chime in.
  • Cebu Provincial Capitol

    Cebu Provincial Capitol

  • Taj Mahal, India

    Taj Mahal, India
    I am not such a touristy traveller, checking out all the sites and then getting drunk with your native co-travellers. No, I want to see, what the locals do, feel and think. So my tracks are different to the ones of the masses. But there are certainly some spots that you have to see, when you go abroad. So I went to Taj Mahal and to write it from the beginning: I was disappointed.
  • Calm Beauty at Bali, Nusa Dua beach

    Calm Beauty at Bali, Nusa Dua beach
    As young as I am, I didn't think I'd be heading off to Bali to represent my university. I was there for a week for the Asian Pacific Media Forum. Amongst all the seminars and gatherings, I was able to find some time to be with "beauty". Me and a few others were finally able to sneak off to hit the beach.
  • Meherangarh Fort, Jaipur

    Meherangarh Fort, Jaipur
    After you have taken a trip to India, you most likely have seen many temples, forts and palaces. But eventually you don’t really know any more how they are called and where they have been at. A phenomenon also witnessed while traveling in China or Japan. I am quite grateful for the Cosmotourist idea, because it gives me the opportunity to do some research again and to understand, where I have been. Such a missing spot is the Meherangarh Fort close to the big city of Jodhpur.
  • The Angel of the North, UK

    The Angel of the North, UK
    For many years i have traveled that same road while going to visit relatives in the north of England, always passing familiar landmarks, but none as familiar as this. The Angel of the North, designed by Antony Gormley stands at the top of the hill next to the A1 on the outskirts of Gateshead, Newcastle. At least 90,000 motorists a day pass by this 208 tonne angel as it welcomes them to "the North". Its wings are 54 meters wide (similar to a jumbo jet), so not seeing this landmark is not an option for those who pass by. She also marks the spot where (below her) coal miners worked for over 200 years.
  • Moganshan Art Center, Shanghai, China

    Moganshan Art Center, Shanghai, China

  • Zigzag Zarraga

    Zigzag Zarraga
    Zigzag because from the city of Iloilo going Zarraga requires one a strength over zig-zag roads! Going there is like riding a big snake; the car is going to the right direction and suddenly, to the left! Very strange, indeed.

    Short track ice skating, Torino

  • Hallgrímskirkja, Iceland

    Hallgrímskirkja, Iceland
    Since Reykjavik is a very small capital you really can walk to Hallgrímskirkja on foot. And hence it’s so huge you probably see the tip of it from every point of the city. Interesting how the Icelandic people deal with religion. Surely it means a great deal to the people if you live on a cold rock with nothing on but ice. But with their special and awkwardly great sense for style and design they have set their mark even on the architecture of sacred places.
