  • St. Kilda Beach

    St. Kilda Beach
    Look, who doesn't like the sun the beaches and the sand? Maybe the white loving look freaks like most of the East-Asians will definitely melt under the sun. LOL!
  • Mingė village

    Mingė village
    Ok, this story is very funny. First of all, I am going to talk about a little village in south western part of Lithuania, near the Minija river, which flows through the Klaipeda town (third town in Lithuania, near the Baltic Sea). The village is really small, there are about 30 houses and the same amount of native families, living there... so where is the whole fun? First of all, there are no streets in this village.
  • Rama 9 Royal Park

    Rama 9 Royal Park
    When I don't know what to do on the weekend, I usually go to public parks such as QueenSirikit Park, Rama 9 Royal Park, Suanluang, Lumpini Park and Benjakiti Park. My favorite park is Rama 9 Royal Park or Suanluang-ror-9 (in Thai) where bangkokians can walk, relax and exercise. It offers possibilities for many activities - swimming, tennis, jogging, walking, riding, badminton, picnics and a playground for kids. It's located in the outskirts of Bangkok; Sukhumvit soi103 rd. Rama 9 Royal Park is the biggest park in Bangkok. And it built for celebrating my Majesty the King's 60th birthday. I love to shoot there and double colorful flowers with a view or people.
  • Rock Werchter Festival

    Rock Werchter Festival
    Temperature is getting higher, trees turn into green and the music is starting to play! The Festival season has started!
  • Bay of Ecalgrain

    Bay of Ecalgrain
    A little bay next to La Hague in Normandy, a beach of shingle between the sea and the cliff: this is the bay of Ecalgrain... Maybe the more beautiful beach of the spot! In the sunny afternoons you can meet some tourists but from 6 p.m. it's a pleasure to be almost alone in front of the sunset. One day I was swimming underwater with my water-glasses and I've seen the shadow of a dolphin. Yes! I swear! Ok, it could have been my glasses which were dirty... But you can see some fish all the same! Just come and see! And bring with you a piece of bread, some cheese and a bottle of red wine, it will be a great French experience!
  • Castle of Montjuic And Hill

    Castle of Montjuic And Hill
    The hill and castle of Montjuic is really a place to see in Barcelona and a place where you can see the whole city with a unique point of view. Dominating the south-west part of the city you have the whole panorama over it on one side, and on the other side you see the great industrial installations of the port of Barcelona. Climbing up the hill is also very interesting because of the park of Montjuic and the Olympic installations from de Olympic Games 1992 (and specially the Olympic swimming and diving pool... do you remember the diving sessions where the athletes jump in the air with the background of whole BCN and the Sagarada Familia?).
  • 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.
  • Brighton Town

    Brighton Town
    I live in Brighton and I have lived here for just under 1 year. I moved from London to live in Brighton because I wanted to live in a house close to the sea. Brighton is an amazing little City on the South Coast of England. In fact, they call it London by the sea. I love Brighton because it has so much to offer. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. There is also the added attraction of being on the coast. Generally, coastal areas in the UK tend to be a bit dated and scummy but not Brighton. The beach at Brighton changes every different day you visit. In the winter the waves crash against the coast and in the summer it is like a still swimming pool.
  • Chinatown Bangkok

    Chinatown Bangkok
    Like in other countries in the world, Bangkok also has its own Chinatown. The Bangkok's Chinatown district runs along Yaowarat Road from Odeon Circle up to the Ong Ang Canal. It's made famous for its gold shop and pawnshops or just about anything you wanted to buy could be found here.
  • Tashkent

    Tashkent
    Uzbekistan is mainly known, for its ancient cities on the old silk road such as Bukhara and Samarkand. Despite the beauty of these towns Tashkent became the capital of the Uzbek SSR in 1930. The great history of Tashkent is not really visible. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that Ghengis Khan in 1219 and the Russians in 1865 destroyed it big time. Still, there remained some major and the only well preserved mosques of the areas.
  • Freihafen

    Freihafen
    Hamburg has so many places you only discover when you take your bike, maybe a map, a bit of adventurous spirit and then go out and hit the street without knowing where you really want to go.
  • Esplanade

    Esplanade
    When one is in Singapore, there is always a strange structure looming over the horizon. Upon closer inspection this curiosity appears to be a massive architectural masterpiece that looks like one of the country's favorite fruits, albeit its stench, the durian. The Esplanade Theaters on the Bay is built to be the focal point for performing arts in the region.
  • Vatican Museums

    Vatican Museums
    I've never been a huge fan of museums because frankly while traveling, I'd rather see the beautiful cityscape and enjoy mingling with the locals while sampling the country's speciality dishes however the Vatican museums are definitely an exception.
  • Race for Life

    Race for Life
    This was the race for life event which took place in Cardiff in June 2006. Race for Life takes place across the country and the idea is that you run to raise money for cancer research ("http://www.raceforlife.org/":http://www.raceforlife.org/). Race for Life has grown to become the biggest woman only fundraising event and is open to women of all ages and all levels of fitness.
  • Victorian Era Buildings

    Victorian Era Buildings
    Troy, New York is 15 minutes north of Albany, the capital of New York State. During the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, Troy was one of the most prosperous cities in the United States due mainly to the iron works and textile factories that lined the riverfront.
  • 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.
  • Santorini

    Santorini
    If there's a place on Earth that I could really call "heaven", it's definitely Santorini Island. It is... There are no such words, that could describe the feeling, the views, the smell and of course the beauty of this island(s). Firstly, Santorini is the name of several islands in the Aegean Sea, 200 km from Greece (mainland).
  • Goblin Valley State Park

    Goblin Valley State Park
    Goblin valley is known for its creature like rock formations that formed in a valley. One is invited to stroll around climb on these formations. Inside the park however there are a number of campgrounds and slot canyons and neat alcoves. You can drive to the campgrounds and many are furnished with water and public restrooms for the ultimate camping convenience. Be careful with the lighting, the desert sun will have all your colours washed out early in the morning, and just until before sunrise. Pack up a roll of nice slide film and set your phone alarm and go get some pictures of the rising sun. Then get a water bottle and go find some caves and canyons and pick up some real nice reflected red light in the shade. This location is about 4 hours drive from any major airport, but there are also dozens of other national parks really close by. Worth the trouble to get there.
  • Emirates Towers Hotel

    Emirates Towers Hotel
    Dubai, inside a hotel room in Emirates Towers Hotel overlooking Sheikh Zayed Road. Sheikh Zayed road is lined with high rise office and apartment buildings and quite a few five star hotels. The roads are always busy during rush hour. When it isn't rush hour, the road is like a race track with crazy speedy drivers scaring the normal drivers. Sometimes it's like a scene from Wacky Races.
  • Seoul in Night

    Seoul in Night
    Seoul is maybe not such a giant city as Tokyo or Shanghai, but it is still an Asian metropolis of its own kind. This is best seen, when walking through the streets at night. It makes bling-bling and flashes everywhere, even in the remotest of the areas.
