  • Chincoteague & Assateague

    Chincoteague & Assateague
    A really unique national park. These barrier islands off the coast of Virginia are preserves with an amazing amount of diversity. Many migratory birds, horseshoe crabs, turtles, large squirrels(!) and threatened/endangered species make their home here.
  • Ko Chang

    Ko Chang
    I heard first of Ko Chang a few years ago, the so-called backpackers dream, not that much tourism, laid back people and relaxed atmosphere. I`m talking about Thailand's beautiful island in the East, close to the Cambodian border, one of the biggest islands of Thailand. Ko Chang is also named Elephant Island because the shape of the island looks with a lot like an elephant. The last time I`ve been to Thailand, I didn`t make it there but that time I planned on going there on my way back from Cambodia to Bangkok.
  • Easter Island (Hanga Roa)

    Easter Island (Hanga Roa)
    Easter island is a Polynesian island of the South Pacific and is a territory of Chile. Easter Island or Rapa Nui (in Rapa Nui language) is famous for its giant statues made of volcanic rock called Moai. The statues are all over the island and they were constructed to represent the dead men and ancestors of the island.

  • Spice Island Grenada

    Spice Island Grenada
    I've only been to Spice Island Grenada once for a holiday, but it made a great location to shoot Lomos with my Frogeye and SuperSampler cameras. It certainly lived up to its reputation for being hot, spicy and tropical, just the perfect place for chillin'. It may have changed a little since I was there as it was hit by a hurricane and pretty much devastated later that year, but the Granadians are resilient people and they have been rebuilding their paradise Island. One place I would thoroughly recommend a visitor to go to is the Chocolate factory - not only do they produce wonderful chocolate, the whole ethos of the place is wonderful, it's very much a community enterprise.
  • Scilly Isles

    Scilly Isles
    The isles of Scilly are amazing, they make no sense to at all, they are 30 miles (approx.) of the coast of the UK and yet they have tropical gardens on the island of Tresco - outdoor ones and all unlike the indoor Eden project, just a few miles away on the mainland. They pretty much all have sandy beaches.
  • Island of Serifos

    Island of Serifos
    A small island hardly anyone has heard of, and the locals like it that way. It's mountainous, with rough roads, but heavenly hidden beaches, and villages spreading down Cliffside like medieval or fairy tale towns. Perseus is said to have beheaded the Medusa there, so she no longer has the power to turn you to stone, but too much sea, sand and ouzo could do the trick.
  • Islands of Lérins

    Islands of Lérins
    The islands of Lérins are 2 little islands in the bay of Cannes, only 15 min by boat from the port of Cannes. Go until the end of the port and take one of the 2 companies who make the trips to the islands (see the links). Make a nice little journey to these islands which are a nature protected area and not touched by all the constructions and mass-tourism of the whole Cote d'Azur.
  • Samos

    Samos
    Samos is a small island in Greece (length: about 43 km, width: about 19 km) but nevertheless full of contrasts ... mountains where you can go hiking (but you should be in good condition), beautiful and lonely beaches, cultural highlights like antique ruins, deep forests, picturesque villages, cosy taverns but also lively cities, where you can go shopping or enjoy nightlife. People here are very friendly and open minded. It's almost necessary to rent a car because public transport is non-lined. The streets are a challenge but great for adventurers like me!
  • Island of If

    Island of If
    One of the best known islands in the whole world - the island of If. I could not find the story about the island, why is it called like that - If. But one thing I know for sure is that this island is famous because of the Count of Monte Cristo. As you can remember the story of Alexandre Dumas, this Count was jailed there and the whole story is about how he tries to escape from this small island, where only the building of jail is located. I do not remember the exact amount of time, but I guess that he escaped only after several years (maybe 7 or 13) by digging the whole in the wall with the spoon.
  • Aran Islands

    Aran Islands
    A fortune teller in India read my hand recently and told me that I am loving nature. I thought this is quite rhetorical, because I don't know anyone, who doesn't love nature?!? And I am not very fond of going out into the nature, but there are a few places that just impress you to the bone. One of those places are the Aran Islands west of the grand mother island Ireland. It is one of the remains of Gaelic culture and the Celts.
  • Capurganá

    Capurganá
    On this location the soundtrack sings "Endless vacations! Endless vacations!" or "Vamos a la playa oh oh oh". Here everybody seems happy, children, old people, ladies, dogs, birds... everybody. The wind blows fresh breeze all the time and the mornings are awesome.
  • Keelung City

    Keelung City
    Keelung is a port city in the north of Taiwan, near the capital, Taipei. Probably the easiest way to get to Keelung from Taipei is by commuter train, which ply the route every 15 to 20 minutes. It is a good place to play on weekends. You can visit Taiwan's scenic northeast coast. The sea is so blue and clean. I enjoy the moment sitting on beach and talking with good friends. You can also see some small islands in the ocean. Keelung is near the sea, so there are many fish.
  • Tong Nai Pan Noi Beach

    Tong Nai Pan Noi beach. Located on the "Koh Pangan" - Island of Pangan
  • Island Life - the Isle of Wight

    Island Life - the Isle of Wight
    Oh Wow! Island Theme - this is just perfect for me, because I LOVE Islands! I live on an island and all the best holidays I've ever had have been on Islands.
  • Queen's Island

    Queen's Island
    Queen's Island on the River Lagan is home to the Harland and Wolff ship-yards, birthplace of the Titanic, probably Belfast's most famous export. The Belfast shipbuilding industry can be dated back to the mid-1600s, and the banks of the Lagan became devoted to the H+W shipyards in the late eighteenth century. From Queen's Island came some of the most famous ships in modern history, such as the Olympic and the Britannia. Despite its sticky end, the Titanic is still celebrated as one of the most notable triumphs of modern industry, and its history is celebrated each year during the Belfast "Titanic Festival".
  • Lanzarote

    Lanzarote
    Lanzarote is one of seven Canary Islands and it is situated north-east of the island group. The island is also one of 17 autonomous regions in the Atlantic Ocean. It is about 140 km away from Morocco and about 1000 km from the Spanish mainland. The climate is very mild all around the year, like everlasting spring. It is mild in winter and not too hot in summer because Lanzarote is situated in the Passat zone, which means that there are fresh winds from the North which make the high temperatures bearable. Lanzarote is a volcanic island that's why (what a surprise!) you can find some volcanoes on it. To see them visit the Timanfaya National Park where you can see the Montanas del Fuego. It is very impressive to drive through the black fields of lava (only possible with a bus tour). All over the island you can find artworks of Cesar Manrique, the islands figurehead artist. To get some impressions of Manrique's sense of art you can visit his very exceptionally designed house where you can see artworks of Manrique and other artists.
  • Skala Loutron

    Skala Loutron
    If you visit Lesvos Island (one of the largest Greek islands in the Aegean, just off the Turkish coast) and you feel like adventuring outside the touristy areas, head for the Gulf of Gera. I advice you to stay in the small village of Skala Loutron and explore the area from there. In this tiny fishermen's village you will find the Zaïra Hotel, an old olive mill transformed into a cosy hotel.
  • Lake Caliraya

    Lake Caliraya
    Lake Caliraya is a man-made lake situated in the towns of Lumban, Cavinti, and Kalayaan in Laguna province, Philippines. It is approximately 1,200 feet above sea level. The climate in the area is considerably cool throughout the year. The lake was created by the Americans circa 1930s to generate hydroelectric power.
