  • Funicular

    Funicular
    There is just something about riding a funicular that brings out the child in me. I get all giddy with excitement as the slanted tram travels up a very steep slope normally with fantastic views along the way. This particular funicular was in Barcelona and is one of the two ways you can get up to Mt. Tibidabo (aside from car/bus-boring!) and is over 100 years old and is the first of its kind in all of Spain!
  • Alanga Hotel

    Alanga Hotel
    Searching for a trip next spring? Wanna see the real Sea and smell the real vacation-time-smell? Then you must at least give a chance to the most popular Lithuanian resort near the sea, called the Palanga town. It has a lot to offer, not only in the summertime, when the streets are full of street artists and lots of attractions, but also at any time of the year. And if you need a really peaceful accommodation place, then you just have to choose this hotel - Alanga. Yes, you're completely right, if you did get the idea of the hotel's name: Alanga is in Palanga and it has only the first letter missing. And it's also the name of the river, near which the hotel is situated.
  • Hitchhikingrs' Heaven

    Hitchhikingrs' Heaven
    If you are a hitchhiker - read further. If you're not, so this place won't be interesting for you at all. Four roads, from Kaunas, Palanga, Silale and Klaipeda cross each other here, and I call this place a hitchhikers heaven because as many times as I have hitchhiked here I haven't waited for a car to stop for more than 10 minutes. In Lithuania there are two biggest main roads and these are ViaBaltica and Vilnius - Klaipeda.
  • 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.
  • Park Lagrange

    Park Lagrange
    The Park Lagrange in Geneva is THE SPOT to see the best free concerts in summer! Amazing beautiful huge park in les Eaux-Vives, with a gorgeous view on the lake; with the most beautiful rose garden in the city, and great place just to lay down and chill in the grass during the day. In July and August, around 7 p.m., people start to walk to the "Ella Fitzgerald" scene. At this time it's too early to hear or see anything, but people come here to make a big picnic in the grass and everyone has his favorite spot to find the members of their tribe. At 8:30 p.m. the music starts. Always great musicians, very good sound, I've never been disappointed. On Wednesdays and Fridays, two months a year.
  • Westmorland Motor Club

    Westmorland Motor Club
    Westmorland Motor Club was founded in 1910, and organizes motor-sport events around south Cumbria, including the Barbon Hillclimb for cars. It's a great day out for petrol-heads. The track on the Barbon Manor Estate near Kirkby Lonsdale is 0.162 km long with an average gradient of 1 in 12. It features two bends, and a hairpin just short of the finish line.
  • Ilustrado Restaurant

    Ilustrado Restaurant
    This place is a nice restaurant with tasteful recipes for everyone. It has a nice ambiance and an elegant colour theme of black, red and white. Lots of mirrors make it good for mirror shots for your OSCM. The cosy and laid back atmosphere makes it a good place to relax while enjoying your tasteful retreat! Yummy Filipino dishes are served with some non traditional twists.
  • Tamraght

    Tamraght
    Tamraght is a small town some kilometres up north from Agadir. It is quieter and less famous neighbour of the surfer's and hippie town Taghazoute. One of my favourite places to get some really good winter swell and nice and warm days during the European wintertime; everything packed into the fairytale-like ambience of Morocco.
  • Praia Grande

    Praia Grande
    Praia Grande is one of the most popular Sao Paulo's beaches on the northern coast of Brazil. When you are in Ubatuba and looking for some crazy action, Praia Grande is the place for you. Waves, music, people, beer and Sun on almost 2 km long sandy beach by the South Atlantic Ocean.
  • Lake Malawi

    Lake Malawi
    Malawi is one of the least known places in Africa. It lies between Zambia, Mozambique and Kenia and was formerly attached to North Rodesia. The people there speak English, one of the poorest countries of the world, but everything there works with a smile. Their main economy- products are wood and fish. A lot of fish, because one third of the country is covered by water. That's lake Malawi! One boat, the Ilala, goes weekly from north to south, filled with people, maïs, goats, fish... and very eventually some lost tourists.
  • Petra and Wadi Rum

    Petra and Wadi Rum
    How could I come to Jordan without experiencing PETRA?!!! We took a bumpy bus ride from Aqaba to Petra...nothing could prepare me for the awe-inspiring beauty that awaited. In order to get to the heart of Petra, you must walk along a mud road for about 15-20 minutes, which soon becomes closed in on both sides by gigantic walls of rock. The shades of the rock/mud is initially red, but changes shades and forms at almost every corner you turn. The sheer height of the sandstone walls were incredible...and our excitement only grew as we got closer to the Khazneh, or treasury...the building Petra is most famous for. It was immensely huge...majestic in all its right...and the intriguing detail and beauty of the building, carved into the rock blew me away.
  • Mogwai

    Mogwai
    Nestled at the center of Marikina Shoe Expo or what is more affectionately called "Cubao X", is Mogwai, a bar owned by one of the most acclaimed directors in Philippine cinema, Erik Matti. It is the ideal place to chill out or for a nightcap, with beers pegged at a dollar each. You can get dessert with their specialty the choco lava cake where you can see the sweet filling oozing before your eyes.
  • Vacation in Berlin

    Vacation in Berlin
    If you live in a little village like me where nothing happens at all vacation means travelling to a big city like Berlin where you can feel life pulsating! It's a really great city with lots of different faces and places, and the people I met were very friendly and open-minded.
  • Ponte JK

    Ponte JK
    The Ponte JK (Juscolino Kubitschek Bridge), crossing Paranoá Lake, is today one of the most famous points of Brasilia, the planned city built by President Juscelino Kubitschek to be the capital of Brazil. It was inaugurated in 2002 in his honor and in 2003 it was elected in a World International Congress on Bridges (yes, such a thing exists...) the most beautiful bridge of the world. Alexandre Chan and Mario Vila Verde are respectively the architect and the engineer responsible for its design and construction, which cost around 160 million reis (Brazilian money) (or 80 million American dollars today...). It is a beautiful place, really, because it seems to be so light (despite it weights more than 13 000 tons) and at night the illumination gives it a special aura, as if Brasilia was a huge modern metropolis.
  • history Kaunas Oval Office Park

    history Kaunas Oval Office Park
    If you want to visit only the park just like me so you can come when ever you want, but if you want to enter the museum, come on Wednesday, because you won't need to pay for the ticket (it's the day when everyone can visit museum for free). Inside the museum you can find interesting stuff about Lithuania's history.
  • Warsaw and Krakow

    Warsaw and Krakow
    I had a lot of fun visiting Poland. I traveled through many small towns and a few big cities. I loved Krakow so very much because it was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. Warsaw was much more modern looking, and its Soviet styled buildings imparted a taste of sadness to its atmosphere. I wandered down the streets of Krakow day and night. There was always something to do and so many friendly people to talk to. I enjoyed walking along the Vistula River at night in Krakow and Warsaw. I would eat at fine restaurants with my friends and drink carbonated mineral water and delectable beers. The food was delicious and incredibly affordable. I saw vast treasures owned by the Catholic Church in places of pilgrimage. I hope to go back to Poland one day.
  • Bullerdeich In Hammerbrook

    Bullerdeich In Hammerbrook
    The area I live in is basically not inhabited. Hammerbrook in Hamburg is an industrial- and business-territory. But there are lofts and there am I. I live in an Artists House where people live in lofts and start projects together, but this very spot will be explained in a few weeks. The main objective is the Bullerdeich: It is one fantastic secret wild park close to my flat.
  • Moviepark

    Moviepark
    Holga, Diana, SX 70 and Horizon entering Hollywood. If you want to make pics like in the glorious old times of Hollywood-Movies... you could do it without spending a lot of time and money. In Warner Brothers Movie parks you'll find back stages, facades and streets where you could imagine that gangsters, Bonny&Clyde or John Wayne have passed. And if you don't go there on holidays or on Sunday, take your time, until people have left the place you want to make your pic - you can make photos like in the 60s or 70s there. And if you take a portrait-film, and the good old SX 70 for your Polaroid-camera, you'll get the sweet colors which fit perfectly to your motives.
  • Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife

    Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife
    Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife is an ecological sanctuary within the city. It has mini zoo, lagoon, amphitheater, fishing village and vast areas of greenery's. This is my personal favorite spot to take pictures. The relaxing atmosphere and the serene manmade lake are just the extras. It has an enormous park land area hence there are plenty of sceneries to choose from. Great place to go for picnic and test your new rolls of film and cameras nevertheless.
  • Cathedral Notre Dame

    Cathedral Notre Dame
    The cathedral of "Notre Dame" of Paris, in the real historical center of the city (Island of the city, on the Seine) is a world-known monument and for sure one of the most visited places by the tourists in Paris. Always a very crowded place and typical "postcard" of your stay in Paris... But to say truly, the religious gothic style of this building is really worth the visit, it's a beautiful cathedral.
