Cabin fever led to several rolls of film being sacrificed and a camera nearly going overboard. On a recent trip to Amsterdam with a group of friends we took the ferry from Harwich in Suffolk to the Hook of Holland.
Eight hours on the ferry, each way was pretty boring and cabin fever led to several rolls of film being sacrificed and one camera nearly going overboard. The results are pretty satisfying, there were some great blocks of colour and angular structures on the ferry which were perfect for doubles.
The Hook of Holland itself is really interesting, it has loads of industrial buildings and chimneys puffing smoke. On a clearer day with a camera more geared up for long distance shots you could get some great photos.
I’m not going to recommend that you take a ferry, BUT if you do, take a camera and make the most of your boredom.
I visited Tibet in early June 2009. It was a group trip with three other friends including fellow lomographer, @venusattack. Tibet to me is a mysterious and untainted place. We wanted to go on a trip there because of its breathtaking mountainous scenery and monasteries.
It's been a while since we last heard from Hello America, the photographic storytelling platform created by Kristen Blanton and her partner, Matt Jozwiak. .Blanton and Jozwiak travel American roads together and document their tales strictly on film. The two have been very busy, and recently went on a road trip from Florida to California. Kristen shares the story behind their recent adventure.
My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
Unexpected detours sometimes make travel so memorable. On a stop in Spain during their tour around Europe years ago, @alexroarsatlyons and his friends took a leaf out of a fellow traveler's book and had a spur-of-the-moment trip to Terifa.

Trench, chesterfield, covert, raglan. The coat has a vocabulary of its own. And like words we use today, these styles still look current though their roots may go as far back as the mid 19th century. As if by lending these vintage snaps color and unruly hair we can easily mistake the coats to be from today.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.

We celebrated the launch of the Lomo'instant Wide camera in the Lomography Soho store with live music from Locks, a bottomless pit of mulled wine and enough tasty doughnuts to sink a battleship! We even managed to take some snaps of the night, including some rather adorable pictures of a tiny kitten.
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.
