  • Ski Dubai

    Ski Dubai
    The Emirates are too over the top to be comprehended by a simple mind like me. But one thing I understood perfectly so far: deliver entertainment and sensations no matter of the costs. One perfect example for this is the ski Dubai! As we know, Dubai is in the middle of the desert! Desert equals sun equals heat equals no snow equals question. Answer: the sheikhs just build an amusement dome where there is a ski-world.

Lake Maggiore is the second largest of Italian lakes (65 km long, 2-4.5 km wide and 370 m deep in its maximum depth) but may rank first in beauty. It is an internationally famous resort of Europe, with its picturesque and spectacular landscape, mild climate and luxuriant vegetation. The climate favors a beautiful botanic garden on the lake shore, with exotic and rare plants including even those from the subtropical zone.

    Bike
    My favourite transport vehicle is my bicycle. It's so easy to go out with it, to the city or to the countryside. It costs nothing, only a little bit physical energy and it's also good for your health to do a little bit exercise.

  • Cairo

    Cairo
    My friend David, Maya and I arrived in Cairo early in the morning, hailed a taxi and set off to the Talat Harb area to look for hotels. Our taxi driver (working on commission basis) drove us to his hotel where we were dragged in, tiredness and the thought of a bed overweighed our energy to look for another one. The hotel was cheap but awful. The rooms were dirty and the English man who run it was frankly the biggest asshole I have met in my travels. Anyways, we checked in, caught a few hours of sleep and got up for a late breakfast. David stayed in bed all day while Maya and I went to explore Cairo.
  • Greek Easter at Uncle Paul’s

    Greek Easter at Uncle Paul’s
    Every since I can remember my family would always get together at my uncles house in Lindenhurst, NY. Perorations start a week or so in advanced. Uncle Paul orders the lamb and goat. Grandma starts preparing all the side dishes and colours the Easer Eggs. Finally on Easter Sunday Uncle Paul gets up nice and early to prepare the lamb and goat. Then he lights the BBQ.
  • Gamla Stan in Stockholm

    Gamla Stan in Stockholm
    A couple of weeks ago I went to Stockholm. It was freezing cold, but very charming. I fell immediately in love with the heart of Stockholm, Gamla Stan. The name derives from the term "gamla staden", which literally means Old Town. On the maps and in the literature from the mid 19th century, however, it was being called "staden mellan broarna" ("the city between the bridges") or staden inom broarna ("the city within the bridges"). This is not surprising, since the city of Stockholm was built on islands and Gamla Stan is the oldest and central part of the settlements.
  • Siegessäule

    Siegessäule
    Berlin, October 2004, three young people pay a visit to a good friend. Although all three have already been to the capital at least once, we do a little bit of sightseeing. The weather is fine and we're all in a brilliant mood. "Let's try to get on top of the Siegessäule!" I've always wanted to do that. Even my grandma was once on top of this monument and had left a message there (probably covered under ten layers of paint now). "No, you can't get up there!" argues Matthi, but he's wrong.
  • Harajuku

    Harajuku
    Not for the faint-hearted, Harajuku lies between Shibuya and Yoyogi in the japanese metropolis, Tokyo. On any day of the week you will find the small area full of people either shopping, eating or just hanging around looking painfully cool. Packed with expensive and exclusive boutiques as well as more affordable shops this is the place to come if you want to be "seen".
  • Madeira

    Madeira
    Madeira is a great place to go. An amazing volcanic landscape with deep valleys, ravines and miles of footpaths, which makes a right place to go if you are a nature lover. There are some places that you can't miss; "Mercado dos Lavradores" in Funchal is one of them.
  • Abandoned Railroad Tracks

    Abandoned Railroad Tracks
    Traces of the once working mexican railroad, slowly erased by nature. On one side the tracks end abruptly, but on the other the keep going on and on. And not only railroad tracks go on, but lots of strange things like advertisements that warn you about never coming train; rusty metal, rusty clothes and even forgotten rusty christmas trees resting forever on the millions of stones that surround the tracks. It's like being on a forgotten island in the middle of a crowded city.
  • Día de Muertos

    Día de Muertos
    Tepotzotlán is a place, a little colonial town, near México City… but most important is this day. November 1 & 2, Día de Muertos, Day of the Dead; the day when people that has left us in this side of the road visits us to have a drink at our table. In fact, you can take part of the festivity at almost any place at México. One of the must important traditions on this day is the offering; it acquires different characteristics at different locations. At Tepotzotlán, some of the youngsters of the town organize a macro offering with lots of skeletons and skulls in every size and material (sugar, paper and clay).
  • Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

    Neues Institutsgebäude NIG
    If you`re into late 70's asbest-architecture, this is the place for you. Some clear instructions: enter this University building preferably in the evening when there are no more lazy students around. Have a 50 cent coffee at one of the automats. Say hi to one of the people lying around there. Go to the entrance hall again and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Step into the grand PATERNOSTER elevator (this thing is made out of wood and goes up and down with crazy mechanics) and occupy yourself by reading the students paroles for vegan food. Get transported to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor and do not descend. When you`re reaching the 5th floor, a sign (see image) will tell you to get the hell off the elevator. The sign somehow signifies that horrible things may happen. But you`ll stay and become a hero. Hold your plastic cup tight. Catch your last breath. Load your camera and take some pictures of your awestruck face. Nuff said, you`ll see for yourself, my friend!
