    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Summer Hot Spots: Ons Island

    "The island wants you back…" No, this isn't a new Lostseason, just the feeling that remains after loving and leaving the island. I don't mind if the island actually wants me back, I'll go back anyway because I want it.

    Last Camping Trip in HK!

    It was 2009, and I was leaving Hong Kong to migrate to the US and best friends and I went for a last camping trip before I go. I joined a Boy Scouts group in Hong Kong 10 years ago and I had a lot of fun with my friends. In these 10 years, we turned from friends to brothers; we went camping, hiking, barbecue, and did all kinds of stuff. I feel like we've spent time with each other more than with our own families.

    Analogue Travels: The Beauty of Hiking

    In the last 200 years or so, modern modes of transport shrunk the Earth, until traveling to the other side of the world can take as little as a day. But to me, the best way of traveling is still on foot. It's the most analogue way to travel.

    Le Gurp is a beach near the village Montalivet in south west France. This part of the French coast is famous for surfing and oysters. The whole area is surrounded by the so called _French badlands_ of only sand an pine tree woods. The Beach itself is fairly shallow but getting deeper about 15 meters into the water; a big wave is the result.
