  • Aurora

    Aurora
    Aurora Province is located on the East-Central side of Luzon Island in the Philippines. Many of its municipalities were once part of Quezon Province. Aurora became an official province in 1979. This is why when I told some friends I went to Aurora, they said, “Oh you went to Quezon.” I had to correct them.

It was big enough to receive 10.000 people at a time!

    Duke Street (and surrondings). Liverpool, UK.
    Duke is my favorite street in Liverpool, but I have to admit it wasn't a love at first sight. There aren't the same fashion shops you could find anywhere and no cool places published in magazines, and nowadays it's hard to find.

  • Pike Place Public Market (Seattle)

    Pike Place Public Market (Seattle)
    I can´t really say something about public market culture in the US, but I reckon it is everywhere different, hence the very 50 states all have a different history and flavor. I personally dig the coasts the most and therefore I was quite impressed by the fish market at the Pike Place Market.

  • Berlin World Sandcastle Competition

    Berlin World Sandcastle Competition
    Me and a few friends were traveling around Europe in June, while visiting Berlin we noticed set up near the central station a beach covered in amazing sand sculptures, the steps outside the station are on higher ground so we could see over the fence. Wanting to do better we walked down and tried to poke our heads above the fence. Being low on money we decided to sneak in. It was amazing on the bank of the river deck chairs children making sandcastles, a bar so we sat by the river!

    Alanta manor house is located only couple of kilometers from Alanta village in the other small village Naujasodis. The road says that you are arriving to the manor house. You will cross small bridge and the beautiful birch avenue. It is impossible to pass this manor house located in the end of the avenue. Alanta manor house buildings are in neoclassicism style. There are main building and some belonging buildings.
  • Usedom

    Usedom
    Usedom is an island in the Baltic Sea whose biggest part lies in Germany. The eastern part belongs to Poland. Because a lot of the towns and villages are health resorts it’s kind of quiet there. But sometimes the only thing you need is to escape from the rest of your life.
  • West Brookfield Memorial Day Parade

    West Brookfield Memorial Day Parade
    Get up on that last Monday of May, and take a trip out to the West Brookfield Memorial Day Parade. Complete with the Scouts (boy and girl), the Veterans, and of course, all the old people, it's impossible to come to this parade and not get at least a couple sweet shots. After the parade, you may even want to take a walk down Pig's Alley, or down to the Knights Of Columbus, where some more Memorial Day photos can be found.

  • Shinkansen (Tokyo)

    Shinkansen (Tokyo)
    While I write this story I am sitting in a regional Spanish train. He will take around two hours for a distance of around 200 kilometer from Valencia to Alicante. No comparison to the undisputed heavyweight champion of the rail-racing world: The Shinkansen.
  • Open Air Museum (Osaka)

    Open Air Museum (Osaka)
    One might has the feeling from afar, that Japan is only about Bling Bling, manga-figures with big breasts and salary men sleeping 2 hour a day, spending 4 hours a day and working 18 hours a day. This is one of the truths in Japan, certainly, but not the only one. This country celebrates modernism and tradition together, maybe like no other.
  • Baseball in Korea

    Baseball in Korea
    There would be few sports you would name particularly Asian, maybe chess but hey this is not a sport. Obviously the creation of the most famous sports is historically a thing for Europeans and Americans. But the funny thing is, many Asian sportsmen are nowadays some of the worlds finest. Just think of Rugby and Cricket, which was brought to India and Australia while they were colonies. Another good example is baseball in Japan and especially to South Korea. In Korea it was established in 1905 and gained more and more momentum with the American troops during the Korean War in the 40ies.
  • Kiyomizu-Dera

    Kiyomizu-Dera
    Kyoto must be the prettiest and most pleasant town of Japan. Certainly it is one of the most historic places of the whole country. Founded in the 7th century and modeled of the great Chinese city of Xian, it became already capital in 794, which is quite speedy in point of view. Only 4 years later the great temple of Kiyomizu was built, one of more than 2000 temples and shrines in Kyoto, which shows the deep religious bounding of the Japanese people.
  • Nara-Koen

    Nara-Koen
    Nara is one of the old capitals of the Japanese empire. And a special one.
  • Settu Menu (Japan)

    Settu Menu (Japan)
    Before someone takes on the grand journey to the Island his teeth and legs shake in expectations of the massive costs such an endeavor will take on you. Everyone heard about square melons or beef by cattle, which was pampered with red wine, music and social care 24/7, and even more so that these products cost a fortune. I already saw myself washing dishes to repay my depths and wisely enough I took handy little packages of Muesli along in my baggage, not to starve while traveling. But to my big surprise all of this precaution was not necessary. There is Settu Menu and it is all you need.
  • Jacnaja Poljana, Kaliningrad

    Jacnaja Poljana, Kaliningrad
    Many German grandmas and grandpas are coming from a region called „Königsberg“. In fact we have the feeling that they are all coming from Königsberg;) But in the past, because after WWII this is Russian territory and the now called Kalininigrad was for a long time a closed area, which only was accessible for armed forces.
