    Osaka Aquarium
    In most modern Asian countries there are only a few historical sites still in the shape of the original. Because wars and eventually the uprising of industry demanded high victims from the land, and fine landscapes, mountains, shores and greenery just vanished. But still people want to spend their leisure time and if there are few sights, one has to create them.
  • Bamboo Forest, Arashiyama

    Bamboo Forest, Arashiyama
    If you make Kyoto the base and center of your travels in Japan, which I would recommend, there a few nice day trips you could start from there. This would be quite smart, because the little town of Kyoto with its 1,5 million citizens attracts the incredible number of 40 million visitors a year. One of the great spots around is Arashiyama. This little town is famous for many neatly restored temples and carved stone-buddhas, which are laid at the sideways.

    Daibutsu-Den (Nara)
    Nara is the one historic spot, where it is said the royal history of the island began. And some there are still some signs of its greatness to be witnessed today.

  • Anglet, France

    Anglet, France
    Just on the edge of France, in the Basque Country you can surf your brains out and sit in the sun in Anglet (not far from the beautiful city of Bayonne).

To top it off, if you feel like stepping into Spain from here it is just a hop, skip and a jump!

    Freedom Square, Tblissi
    The war with big brother Russia is on. How stupid and probably how inevitable, sadly enough. And one spot, that is always in the news and makes this lomo-location so vivid, is the freedom square. The funny thing is, the face of the demonstrations change its face at all times. One year ago I witnessed a demonstration against saakashvilli. Now, with the war in the back, he has somehow united the country from within. This looked differently half a year ago:
