  • Bookstore Marianne Friedrich

    Bookstore Marianne Friedrich
    A place where you always find the right book or simply have a nice talk and sometimes a cup of tea. Marianne has a bookstore, its called Der Buchladen Marianne Friedrich. I got to know her a few years ago. She wanted me for organisation-team, so we got to know each other better. She is so nice. I really love to go to her bookstore, to buy a book (they always inform me very well and find EVERY book) or to drink tea and talk.
  • Da Vinci Café

    Da Vinci Café
    At the Davinci Cafe; situated in BeiTou's Taipei National University of the Arts, one can see the entire city of Taipei by night. Looking out the full-length windows, one can even see the Taipei 101. Davinci Cafe not only possesses great views, but their cuisine is also authentic Italian. Whether it is the Grilled Veal Tenderloin Fillet with Goose Liver Sauce, the mixed seafood Plate with Cream Lemon Sauce or other Italian pasta dishes, the food and the views are equally good. All the bread and desserts in the salad bar are prepared by chefs from Hong Kong. The food is so delicious!
  • Arles

    Arles is an ancient city in the south of France, in the Bouches-du-Rhône county. Arles was established by the Greeks as early as the 6th century BC. The Romans took the town in 123 BC and expanded it into an important city, with a canal link to the Mediterranean Sea being constructed in 104 BC. However, it struggled to escape the shadow of Massalia (Marseille) further along the coast.
  • San Gimignamo

    San Gimignamo
    Ahhh, the lovely fortress town of San Gimignano! It was declared a UNESCO architectural world heritage site and no doubt indeed. The town is surrounded by massive walls and the entrance arch frames narrow cobbled streets lined with shops and cafes all bearing the specialities of the region. From hand-painted ceramics, glassware, pounded silver jewelry and of course the famed wines.
  • Boeing Factory

    Boeing Factory
    The Boeing Factory is about 25 miles north of Seattle. There is a big visitor centre with lots of bits of planes and interactive displays. A 42 foot tail from a 747 looks huge when you see a person standing beside it, then realize it's just the tail, the scale is impressive. Display sections of the new 787 Dreamliner are nice to see, the windows have a touch-screen shade control which looks very cool. Also inside are TV screens showing the features of the new plane.
  • Burbiskiai Estate

    Burbiskiai Estate
    This place fell into my mind when I was little - my grandmother told me her youth story about, how did she go to that times (around 1940-ties) discos. Yes, of course - no DJs, no house or RnB remixes - just simple plain countryside's music festival every weekend. People were gathering there from all of the region - my grandmother herself had to walk about 9 km to this place and then come back home (no taxis, mind that!). So when I grew up, I did finally go there. It's in the north part of Lithuania, just between to big cities Siauliai and Panevezys. The small town Radviliskis is the nearest to this place, so if you go the main road towards Panevezys you will find a brown sign with "Burbiskio Dvaro sodyba" ("Burbiskiai Estate Gardens").

  • Valencia

    Valencia
    Valencia is a city next to the beach where lots of Spanish and foreign students are living. Therefore it never lacks of animation. First of all, the city is amazing in an architectural point of view. Indeed, the main river, called the Turia, has been dried because of flood problems and they decided to make a huge park inside.

Some call it the work of the devil. People came from far and wide to receive psychic messages from it. The locals ignore it. It is, The Georgia Guide Stones.
  • Weird Easter Tradition

    Weird Easter Tradition
    It is a little bit weird so don't laugh, please. Well, my family had this old tradition: hiding a lot of eggs over the house for the kids for searching and then later seeking them. The kids work the whole morning till they find the eggs and eat them. But you ask, "Ok, but everybody does it". The difference here is, the Easter character isn't the rabbit (here you can see our rabbit that loves another holiday, the rabbit thinks he is Santa, but well, he had his own problems, ok?). So, back to my history, our Easter character is that little dwarf like creature from "Snow White movie". Do you know him? That very little and very old person who saved the Snow White from a terrible fate: the wedding with that boring prince from a sort of kingdom about what you never heard before. Anyway, they are the little guys who deliver theses delicious chocolate eggs and stuff to the kids of my family. It's weird, but it's true. They live in our garden working on some stuff around the year, but during the Easter they prepare and hide the eggs for us. You can search for those little guys right here, near my house in Taubaté, Sao Paulo: the Taubaté's Horto Municipal (city garden), a beautiful garden and rain forest animals' sanctuary, with little lakes and a lot of bushes and small trees, a perfect place to hide some chocolate eggs for your children or spend your time with Lomography.
  • Friedhof Sihlfeld

    Friedhof Sihlfeld
    You could go there any time around the year, though the opening times are variable depending on the season. You think probably it's just a cemetery. BUT - it's the biggest coherent green area in Zürich. For it's a cemetery where you could almost feel like in an huge park. There are several trees and plants from different parts in the world - Magnolias or Chinese Acacias or false acacias as of course the local vegetation. The Fauna is prosperous, foxes live there now for generations, and of course birds and other rodents. Beside of that, of course you can admire the exact structuring of the tombs. Walls and segments of urn -graves extend themselves imposingly, surrounded by the aesthetically arranged family-graves. The Crematory building is surely worth a visit too. Two Sphinxes on the entrance pillars beware the Chapel of unexpected intruders. A small round tank/pool with a couple of goldfishes in the middle of the forecourt - two colonnades on the left and the right side of the Chapel. I saw pics of the interior but I never have been inside myself since it always has been closed, when I was there.
  • Makati Central Business District

    Makati Central Business District
    I have been working in the Makati central business district (CBD) for many years. It is known as a major financial and commercial area in Metro Manila. Many international companies have offices there. There are also many hotels, serviced apartments, inns, condominiums, restaurants, and shopping centers.
  • Grande Corniche

    Grande Corniche
    The Grande Corniche is one of the 3 coastal roads going from Nice to Menton and the Italian border. There's the Basse Corniche (lower coastal road), the Moyenne Corniche (middle coastal road) and the Grande Corniche (High coastal road) also known as the road D2564 (see this link for the exact location of the road: "http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html":http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html). This road was constructed by Napoleon the 1st at the beginning of the 19th century and was the only way to go from Nice to Menton. Take the beginning of the road in Nice, near of the port, and follow the signs "Observatoire" or "Grande Corniche". It's climbing until 500-800m above the sea and that's why it's one of the best places to admire the beautiful Mediterranean landscapes of the Cote d'Azur. The whole area around this road is a natural park with beautiful forests and a lot of walking possibilities through the park.
  • Gateway Of India

    Gateway Of India
    Me and another gal pal decided to visit Churchgate apart from the normal shopping rout in Mumbai usually done by our colleagues. Taking the train (the busiest rail service in the world) was really surprising and was not what we had in mind. You must be thinking we are crazy not to take the taxi straight but it was a breeze apart from buying the ticket!! Although the cabin was old and packed with lots of people, it never got stinky and the ceiling was full of fans blowing. The ride was joyous and smooth. And so we
  • Kayak Racing

    Kayak Racing
    I don't know how about you, but for me water is something special... Even when it rains, I feel somehow very different. But that's not the point of this story. I am going to tell you about the Kayak or Canoe boats in Lithuania. It is so popular, that you can not find any of Lithuanians who still haven't tried that.
  • Museum of Rare Stones

    Museum of Rare Stones
    Stones are cold and often not so interesting, but one man, named Vaclovas Intas, did get the feeling, that stones have a lot more to tell us than our drunk partners in local pubs on Friday nights. That's why he did collect stones from all over the world into one place in Lithuania's north side, the town, called Mosedis.
  • Long Sands

    Long Sands
    Long Sands is a beach all long and sandy in Southern Maine. It was popular with native Americans before white people came as a place for fishing and harvesting 25 pound lobsters from off the rocks (for real 25 pounds was the common size before whitey came) and then settlers came in the 1630s. Some wars happened, many settlers and many more natives were killed, natives left, the sea-trade came. Crazy things happened like a mile out into the sea from this beach, there is a tiny rock outcropping called Boon Island where a ship crashed and the sailors were stuck out there, this is the 1850s, anyways they were stuck for a couple of months in the winter and they started to eat the dead guys to stay alive, we don't remember this in history because the Donner party is more famous now.
