  • Morocco

    Morocco
    Not very far from my country (Portugal) I found another world, another culture, another way of living. Morocco, land of contrasts, different cultures and religions, where you can see the inheritance of the Arab world, its architecture and traditions.
  • Quiahuiztlan (Veracruz, Mexico)

    Quiahuiztlan (Veracruz, Mexico)
    In Mexico`s history, this place was a city with 17,000 inhabitants before the Conquest, and it was in this place where the Spanish first set foot in Mexico more than 500 years ago. Today it is a small village, with fishermen, boats, a few houses, a good restaurant also called Quiahuiztlan and 2 or more miles of beach for yourself and some few more visitors. Even for winter days, it`s a good option for eating seafood, getting a tan (or becoming red if you`re too white), and swimming. Q: Why? A: Because it`s Mexico, and there the winter does not exist.
  • The street art corner

    The street art corner
    There is no doubt, this is the corner most involved with street art in Cali. It's extended along the Calle 5 to the Calle 6, from the Carrera 9 to the Carrera 10 containing all the walls and bridges located inside this area. To be more exact you can take a look at "El Sub", another location that I previously recommended.
  • Tenstation

    Tenstation
    Every time I visit Berlin it surprises me, this time TENSTATION - the real Station for Tents in the Centre of Berlin, not far away from best Berlin district Mitte. It is very good hosting in summer time, you feel like you somewhere near the lakes, far away from the city, but here you are very close to it. What is so special - the whole area used to be the huge old open-air swimming pool in the Fritz Schloss Park.
  • Gyeongju

    Gyeongju
    This city is known as an 'outdoor museum', for good reason. Everywhere you look there are ancient buildings, Buddha statues, old temples and, best of all, giant mounds called 'tumuli' in which are buried the bones of ancient kings. Most tumuli are just huge, bare, grassy hills, but one in particular draws me again and again. This tomb of a 1300-years-dead king has about six trees on it - Tim Burtony, craggy trees.
  • Castle Schrofstein

    Castle Schrofstein
    Burg Schrofenstein, an abandoned castle ruin, is situated north-east from Stanz (a very old village of the Tiroler Oberland) near Landeck. To get there you need a car (it's signposted very well) and you should like hiking because you need to get up to the castle afoot. But if you arrived once you will not regret it.
  • Chocolate Museum (Köln)

    Chocolate Museum (Köln)
    "Enjoy an expedition through 3,000 years of chocolate history, either in reality by coming to the Chocolate Museum in the heart of Cologne" - this is what you get, when you walk in the riverside in Koln and stop just in front of the ship-like place, called the Chocolate museum.
  • Köln Cathedral

    Köln Cathedral
    I am not sure if I am correct, but a lot of natives call this THING not the cathedral, but simply the Dom. And this is not a simple cathedral nor a church it is a huge and massive and saint building, that captured my breath after the first eye-glance.
  • Humphrey Head

    Humphrey Head
    To the west of Arnside, across the Kent Estuary, Humphrey Head is a rocky peninsula reaching out into Morecambe Bay. It's a strange and lonely place with wide, expansive skies, a feeling of emptiness. The bay's quick-sands are all around, and it's reputedly where the last wolf in England was killed... Another wolf lies due south across the bay, Heysham nuclear power station, faced by the less long-term hazardous off-shore wind farm to the south west near Barrow-in-Furness.
  • Shushi (Karabakh)

    Shushi (Karabakh)
    During the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno Karabakh Shushi had a major significance. Geographically it lays in the mountains atop of the capitol Stepanakert and for the longest time of the war it was in the hands of Azeri forces.
  • La Turbie’s Trophy

    La Turbie’s Trophy
    Only two Roman Trophys still remain nowadays: one of them is in Adamklissi, Romania (150 km from Bucharest) and the "Trophée dAuguste", in la Turbie, France, on the road from Nice to Monaco (it is in fact the former roman Via Julia Augusta).
  • Baku

    Baku
    Among the new Islamic countries of the post-Soviet Union, I tend to like Azerbaijan a lot. You get your kebab warm, photo-venders throw LC-A after you and I even saw transvestites after nightfall on the street. That's what I call liberal, baby! I was in Baku for a seminar, so food and drinks were granted for free. Yeah! There is an interesting habit for waiters, though.
  • Around Bangkok

    Around Bangkok
    Bangkok days have slipped into unconsciousness... can't remember which day it is anymore... stay in malls for the AC and spend hours walking in the old neighbourhoods to take photos... eating at street vendours tasting the spicy, amazing food.... hanging out with David at his apartment trying to watch Wong Kar Wai dvds on his dodgy computer...watching old Rolling Stones videos at Wong's Place with rampant laughter spilling out into the corners...Taking a nice swim at Knut's house with our cousin Lina... drinking hot coffee in the mornings...eating breakfast at au bon pain... buying t-shirts and other oddities at Chatuchak and Pratunam Market... spending hours in taxis wishing the traffic would move faster... wondering about when to do a day trip to Kanchenaburi... perhaps tomorrow... what day is that?... Monday me thinks... ah... forget it...taking the wonderful river taxi's up to Banglamphu and watching all the backpackers on Khao San Rd.. Going to the cinema and standing to attention for the King...holidays are wonderful... especially ones that drag on into months instead of simply days... when tomorrow may as well be today because it makes no difference, food is cheap, rooms are cheap, the weather is fantastic and the people are friendly.
  • Capri

    Capri
    As long as I remember I've always wanted to visit this island. I finally had the chance last April while on a trip with friends. We stayed in Sorrento, so Capri was easily accessible by ferry boat. We were rushing about enjoying the other sights of the Campania region and just managed to catch the last boat to the island.
  • Yellowstone National Park

    Yellowstone National Park
    My journey to the Yellowstone National Park started from Salt Lake City in Utah although the park mostly belongs to Wyoming. It took about 6 hours to drive up north to the park from Salt Lake City.
  • Teluk Chempedak Beach

    Teluk Chempedak Beach
    What I love about this beach is that I grew up there and this is where I'm from...not from the beach but the town called KUANTAN. This is the place like any other tropical beach minus the sun tanning craze fashion. This is a tropical beach in a fairly medium size town on the east coastline of Peninsula Malaysia. A very south-east Asian place where the locals don't strip to the max to enjoy having fun at the beach.
  • Lago di Fiastra

    Lago di Fiastra
    I recently took my vacation in the Marche, which is a neat area in the middle of Italy. Very calm and decently close to the Adriatic Sea and the port of Ancona. It has all the treats of the Italian landscape, having mountains and seaside alike.
  • Copan

    Copan
    Copan is an example in São Paulo city of Oscar Niemeyer´s architecture, who is celebrating this year his 100th birthday. Indeed, the most important Brazilian architect is responsible for the external architecture and volumes of this building.
  • Desert museum

    Desert museum
    The desert museum is similar to a zoo, but a bit different. Everything that they have on display is from the desert, and is from the nearby vicinity.
  • Eternal Flame

    Eternal Flame
    The biggest attraction on the Independence Square of Toshkent is in my view the eternal flame at just opposite to the Turkistan-palace at the right corner of the square. I don't really know about the west, but eternal flames had been a big hit and a necessity in most of the Eastern-European capitals.
