  • Abandoned industrial coal silo

    Abandoned industrial coal silo
    A few months ago my girlfriend showed me an abandoned industrial coal silo. It is located next to a Kroger in Merrimont, Ohio. Merrimont is a small village East of Cincinnati, Ohio that was established in 1929. The village has made great strides to make itself appear much older than it actually is. The local inn is styled like a medieval castle.
  • Golf Club d'Hulencourt

    Golf Club d'Hulencourt
    Whether you're a seasoned golfer, attempting to be a golfer or just admire gorgeous landscapes...a golf course is one the best areas to photograph. There is always going to be something to shoot - the sunset or sunrise, beautifully manicured flower beds and fairways, ducks frolicking in the water hazards, the occasional deer, hedgehog, fox that scampers on your path, and the best bit... seeing you or one of your mates hit an incredible golf shot (or an equally incredibly bad swing!). Basically, the possibilities are endless.
  • Schützenfest

    Schützenfest
    The Hanoverian Schützenfest is the biggest event in summer. Although all small cities, townships and villages around Hanover have their own Schützenfeste, not one of them can be compared with the event in Hanover. They all have one in common: the shooting clubs of the towns have shooting matches to determine their champion shooters (Schützenkönig/königin, Bürgerkönig, Jugendkönig). In a huge procession these champions are then celebrated.
  • 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.
  • Strawberry Fair

    Strawberry Fair
    The strawberry fair was created by middle class hippies as an excuse to bake a few home made cakes, eat the regional strawberries which were just ripening and break out your old tie died clothing. Over the years it has grown to brim over the local common and become a mini alternative festival with a huge beer tent.
  • 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!
  • Easter - Egg races

    Easter - Egg races
    If you're in Lithuania and it's Easter time, you have to get yourself into one of the best Easter traditions in the whole world. First of all, you have to prepare for the egg races! Find yourself the standard package of eggs in the supermarket, and paint them. Here is the big thing, believe me or not, because the "tuning" of your egg can be the critical factor in the races.

    San Miniato al Monte
    If you ever go to Firenze, you'll probably get fed up with tourists. Then it is your turn: take the bus #12 towards Piazzale Michelangelo; it's quite a long journey from Santa Maria Novella Train Station, but it's worth it. You'll notice that the bus is going up a hill, tell the driver you want to stop at San Miniato al Monte.

    Colosseum
    If you are in Rome, Italy as a tourist, you shouldn't definitely miss visiting this enormous architectural monument built about 1920 years ago by the Emperor Vespasian. He started building it between 70 and 76 AD, but it was completed by his son Titus in 80 AD. The Colosseum was dedicated to the year of Vespasian's death by him.

    Cloister Einsiedeln
    Well, no one will be surprised to hear that also in Europe you can find a lot of historical buildings, especially churches. But this one is especially special. Why? Well it's not the long history that started in around year 990. No, it's the colour inside.
  • A beautiful place in Lucerne

    A beautiful place in Lucerne
    This special place that I will show you, is one out of many that you will find in Lucerne. No doubt about that. BUT this place you will find no other travelers, because it's a secret that I am telling you. Even lots of people that live here have never been there. That's for sure. No matter, in winter, summer, autumn, spring, day or night this place is beautiful anytime. The building that you can see is part of the conservatoire...must be nice going to school there. Actually I have never seen people going in or coming out of it.
  • Boats

    Boats
    The Mediterranean Sea is gorgeous - it has got the crossed water (not blue, not green - the "between" of both, like in doubles). So why not to discover it (the Sea) from the middle of it, ah? Well, you need to be a really good swimmer, or... need some luck to get to Marseille. The city itself is also so interesting, that you can even forget the plans of taking a trip with the boat in the Mediterranean Sea, so be calm and go straight ahead till you reach the old port, which is called Vieux-Port de Marseille.

    The Martyr's Shrine is located near Yuanshan on Beian Rd., near the lush mountains and facing the Keelung River. The Shrine was completed in 1969 and its grand architecture covers a large area of ground. Inside the shrine are the numerous plaques of martyrs as well as pictures illustrating the history of the building of our nation, a tribute to the selflessness of these brave people.

    Sapzurro
    If the city is kidnapping you, the buildings across your job place throw away the sun to the twilight zone, the summer sky is a stranger for your eyes, and your face, legs, arms and the whole skin over your body have the colour of bones; bound to the insane tv addiction, internet and other miracles, then you urgently need to take yourself away to sunniest, purest and natural areas.
