  • Wapping Woods

    Wapping Woods

    Wapping was originally a Saxon settlement. This area was known as a marshland until the 16th century when it was drained. It then became a rich meadow and garden ground until it was acquired for the London Docks. By 1969, the docks at Wapping were empty. Trees were planted and it was optimistically called Wapping Woods. However, the trees could not survive and the result is the small park we have today.

    Kew Gardens

    Although the entrance is about £13.50 (children enjoy the free entrance), it is worth every penny! The Kew Gardens are picnic friendly, so it worth spending a whole day here. Winter or summer, there is always something going on. You can check the web site in advance to find out which particular flowers are in the bloom at the moment, or just come and explore.

    Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Cape Town

    Kirstenbosch - the biggest open-air botanical garden of all. I fell in love with this garden when I first came here back in 2004. So, when I arrived to Cape Town this year, I immediately wanted to go back. Although a few obstacles (in the shape of a vineyard visit and so on) almost prevented me from doing that, there I was, still back at Kirstenbosch!

    Labyrinth park of Horta

    If you're in Barcelona, and a little bit tired of the crowd and the cars of the city, if you're looking for a quiet and refreshing place, if you're alone or with a friend (or more...), have a little excursion to the garden and labyrinth of Horta, located north of the city of Barcelona.

  • The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Monastery

    The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Monastery

    Yes, of course - you will be asking why the hell did I shoot those nice flowers instead of the Church and monastery... You would be right, but I will tell you something, that will be useful if you will go there. Do not go there late in the evenings, cause the monks close the doors of the monastery, so you have to go round it and take the pictures only of the buildings. But, that's not bad, as I did find one of the back doors open, and while nobody did see me, I did one last shot for my film (damn, I could have taken more films...). So you can check the inside of it.

    Earth is our motherland, so we have to be good and not waste it. But today all we hear is pollution, greenhouse effect and so on... What to do? The answer is simple - even today, when technology is going straight forward, we can live without hurting the Fauna and Flora duo.

  • 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").
