Peru is the most impressive country I’ve ever been to. The most impressive place in this impressive country was Machu Picchu.
Machu Picchu is 6000-year-old ruin built by the Incas. It is located almost 2500 metres above sea level and the closest bigger city is called Cusco. To get to the ruins, you can take the train from Cusco or you can do the Inca Jungle Trail.
I went there by train and arrived in Aguas Calientes, the small touristic village at the bottom of Machu Picchu, in the evening. Then I slept a few hours in a cheap but comfortable hostel. I got up at 4.30am to make sure to catch the first bus to the top of the mountain.
Here you can see how Machu Picchu looks like in the very early morning:
I was totally impressed! Everything looked like in the pictures, even better. I cannot describe how I felt, but it was amazing.
Here is my new friend, the lama :)
I totally recommend everybody to go to Machu Picchu. I can’t stress often enough how impressive it is!
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
Last summer we were lucky to visit 4 cities in 3 different countries, just within a few days. This was reason enough to give my very first LomoChrome Turquoise a try. Afterwards I was astonished by the absolutely unexpected colors of the shots.
