    Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific

    Bora Bora...a name which evokes a place that is already close to being considered as "paradise". I actually had the chance to go there for a week; sailing in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons, enjoying the marvelous views, and of course, taking lots of pictures.

    The Underwater Halloween Pumpkin carving

    During Halloween time, we're used to buy a nice pumpkin and have fun by carving it and create strange, funny or very frightening faces. Often we make this in our kitchen or anywhere else, but did you ever try to do this by diving 6 meter deep? I'd like to share with you a very funny and unique halloween experience I had the chance to live...

    Solomon islands - the world's magical end

    It feels like the world’s end. Imagine just you, the ocean, tropical rainforest and traditional leaf hut villages. Longing to go off the beaten track? There is no beaten track.. :) We were lucky to win a trip to one of the last South Pacific frontiers, the Solomon islands. Armed with a Lomography Spinner 360 and a Sprocket Rocket we went on an adventure to the most remote and secretive islands you can imagine. And guess what? You’re about to discover a glimpse of our experiences...

    Welcome to Iceland, where fire literally meets ice, not only Bjork puts Iceland on the map but also places like Jökulsárlón. Planning on going here for a trip? Well make sure to load up on film as there wouldn't be any film shops available on the way to this place. You certainly can't miss out on the amazing photo opportunities that this place offers.

    The Sea Swimming Pool of Uturoa

    Going to the swimming pool is always cool, but I don't like it when the place is closed and smelling strong chemicals... open air pools are much better, but the chemicals in the water are still there... and what about an open air swimming pool that is open on the beautiful waters of a logoon? That's what I want to show you now, the open air sea-pool of Uturoa!

    Pinchers Lagoon

    Pinchers Lagoon is a 5-minute boat ride or a 30 minute kayak paddle from the docks of Koror (the main city) in the small country of Palau. The lagoon was named Pinchers because the rock island that partially encloses the lagoon is shaped like a crab's claw on aerial view. There is no beach or land to dock on however in this lagoon.

    Kaunas Lagoon

    Tell me who doesn't like water? Or maybe swimming? Everyone in the world once in the lifetime goes for a swim, so did I and my friends. Of course it wasn't first time for us but still we had a very good time. If in the other life I would need to choose what kind of animal would I like to be, then I would choose to be a fish.

    Marin Headlands

    Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge on the Marin side (so not San Francisco for all you non-locals), the Marin Headlands offer some of the most scenic trials, beaches, and historic sites to explore in the Bay Area. Spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge are everywhere on a clear day. The Headlands are easily reached by taking the last exit before the Golden Gate Bridge if you are coming from Marin.
