    Lis Na Ree Resort

    I would like to introduce the Lis Na Ree resorts to the people who plan to overnight in Cherating, Kuantan. The reason why I like this resort so much is because it is very close to the beach. Besides that, it also has a goat farm right in front of the hotel, I feel like I'm back in the nature! Just love the feeling of this resort.

  • Lake Malawi

    Lake Malawi

    Malawi is one of the least known places in Africa. It lies between Zambia, Mozambique and Kenia and was formerly attached to North Rodesia. The people there speak English, one of the poorest countries of the world, but everything there works with a smile. Their main economy- products are wood and fish. A lot of fish, because one third of the country is covered by water. That's lake Malawi! One boat, the Ilala, goes weekly from north to south, filled with people, maïs, goats, fish... and very eventually some lost tourists.

    The Promenade des Anglais (literally the Englishman's promenade) is one of the main places to see if you stay in Nice. It's the whole coastal pedestrian walk along the seafront in Nice where you can admire the beautiful landscape of what is called the Baie des Anges, the Angel's bay.

    Montauk

    If you plan on visiting New York during the summer and want to do try something different, then I recommend Montauk. Montauk is located at the very end of Long Island. A good 4-hour train ride from good old Manhattan, but well worth it. A must stop for any beach loving lomographer.

Loads of things are happening there, lots of exhibitions and other events. The name can bring us to the conclusion that this has something to do with fashion.

    Seward

    Seward Alaska lies right along the coast of the halibut capitol of the world. This means a lot of boats and a lot of fishermen (fisher people for the politically correct). A tiny little town with a lovely cosy atmosphere. For those touring Alaska, this is should be a definite location. If the skies are clear, which is rare for this part of the world, one can see the Fjords national park that lies across the bay. One can book a cruise or a tour from the park headquarters in Seward for a closer look at the walls of ice.

    Church of the Three Crosses

    From the very first time I thought traveling to Finland, one of my 'must' was the Church of the 3 Crosses, in Imatra, near the Russian frontier. For a Mediterranean guy, visiting Finland is astonishing. Things as elementary as villages are completely different from the ones I'm used to. Imatra is a clear example. The first time I was in Imatra, I missed the "city centre", so I had to get back... Finding the church is a hard mission, but it is worth it.

    Vatican Museums

    I've never been a huge fan of museums because frankly while traveling, I'd rather see the beautiful cityscape and enjoy mingling with the locals while sampling the country's speciality dishes however the Vatican museums are definitely an exception.

    Esplanade

    When one is in Singapore, there is always a strange structure looming over the horizon. Upon closer inspection this curiosity appears to be a massive architectural masterpiece that looks like one of the country's favorite fruits, albeit its stench, the durian. The Esplanade Theaters on the Bay is built to be the focal point for performing arts in the region.

One of the popular rice terraces that tourists visit is in Batad in Ifugao Province. The Batad rice terraces are beautifully formed in the shape of an ampitheater.

    Flying boat

    Starting from the Eiffel tower, The Pont Neuf, Notre Dame or Le Louvre, day and night you can have a one hour trip to see Paris from a original point of view. The 'Bateau mouche' (fly boat), is a boat with large windows and big terrace on top of it. You can walk on the sides of the ship to shoot great pictures. A voice is telling you the stories of the monuments in 13 languages, sometimes with music. Some boats have a night restaurant and allow you a romantic longer journey. Also, the river 'La Seine' cross Paris by the middle and has many beautiful bridges. If you go to Paris don't miss this experience, your Lomo cameras will love it! 11 Euros for adults and 6 euros for the children.

    Hitchhikingrs' Heaven

    If you are a hitchhiker - read further. If you're not, so this place won't be interesting for you at all. Four roads, from Kaunas, Palanga, Silale and Klaipeda cross each other here, and I call this place a hitchhikers heaven because as many times as I have hitchhiked here I haven't waited for a car to stop for more than 10 minutes. In Lithuania there are two biggest main roads and these are ViaBaltica and Vilnius - Klaipeda.

    Fish-market of Marseille

    40% of the fishes eaten by the French are farm fishes. When you'll go to Marseille, don't miss the traditional fish market that stands everyday on the Old Port (Le Vieux Port), on Belgian platform (Quai des Belges). The old fish-market (La Criée) has become the National Theater of the town. So, every morning, the fish-market takes place. The fishermen sell their fish on their own. They wake up very early, take fish (or not) from their nets, and go back to the harbor. Fresh, fresh fish! "Il est frais, il est frais mon poisson!" shouts the fishmonger.

    In the vicinity of the Modern and Contemporary Museum of Arts, the public library has a lot to offer: reading rooms, internet, videos, music areas and auditorium. There are exhibitions on writers, book work, artists. Since 2002, the square head designed by the artist Sacha Sosno has become the city's new landmark.

    Visiting Singapore is never complete without taking the cable car ride. Ride it from its two stations at Sentosa Island "www.sentosa.sg":www.sentosa.sg or from Mount Faber Jewel Box station "http:// www.mountfaber.com.sg/main-cablecar.htm":http:// www.mountfaber.com.sg/main-cablecar.htm The cable car provides a fantastic view of Singapore - the sweeping landscapes, the harbor, it's busy ports, cityscapes, Sentosa island - all very pretty and lomographic!

  • FC Fossombrone

    FC Fossombrone

    This football team, in my view, is a legend. Without any achievements and success. The FC Fossombrone is playing the sixth Italian league and their games are only to be seen in the stadium and on their webpage. The story behind the team is that it was bought by the Belgian designer Dirk Bikkemberg. He turned this club around and gave it a complete make over. He designed the complete gear from socks to the under-wears and shirts. He built a new stadium with the green and the flags all designed. The jersey with the blue spiral and the white ground is the prettiest in the world. I read about this team in a German newspaper and it right away strike me, that Bikkemberg finalized the symbiosis between fashion and sport. The players of the team are also the models of Bikkemberg regular collection and star of his commercials.

    Chatuchak Weekend Market

    Though there are many markets throughout Bangkok, Chatuchak Weekend Market is still pretty much the undisputed king of them all. Chatuchak is pronounced as Jatujak and simply known by the local people as JJ. This weekend market is a-must-place to visit (or to shop) if you visiting Bangkok simply because it is the biggest open air market in the world. It covers over 35 acres and contains more than 10,000 stalls selling practically everything under the sun. Such as the smallest nails, to foods, trendy fashions, antiques intricate wooden carvings, masks from far-off lands, adorable fluffy dogs, colorful fish of every hue and singing birds. Once inside the market, you will be catch up in a world of bursting crowds and stalls stretching as far as the eyes can see.

    Samos

    Samos is a small island in Greece (length: about 43 km, width: about 19 km) but nevertheless full of contrasts ... mountains where you can go hiking (but you should be in good condition), beautiful and lonely beaches, cultural highlights like antique ruins, deep forests, picturesque villages, cosy taverns but also lively cities, where you can go shopping or enjoy nightlife. People here are very friendly and open minded. It's almost necessary to rent a car because public transport is non-lined. The streets are a challenge but great for adventurers like me!

    Barigui Park

    Every city has its own attractions. One of the most visited spots of Curitiba is the Barigui Park. It's a huuuuuuuuge park inside the city with an artificial lake, museums, amusement park, restaurants, aeromodelism, bike trail, sports field, trekking, barbecue spots, gym, exposition center, and many other things to see. During the summer time or weekends, the park is crowded with kids and dogs, families, couples and tourists having fun in their favorite spots. You can get there by car, bike, bus or even helicopter! You'll have so many things to shoot that you can't decide where to start! My favorite spot is next to the lake, where people bring their kites to fly across the sky. It's a beautiful show and you can't miss it!

    The Philippines is famous for its Fiestas or festivals commemorating a particular place's patron saint. The Aliwan Festival is dubbed 'the mother of all fiestas' and rightly so. With more than fifteen representatives from each corner of the country all vying for the right to be called the best, well at least for that year anyway. With colourful floats, intricate costumes and elaborate dances, there will be no lack of interesting subjects to photograph. The event offers a

    Ahhh, the lovely fortress town of San Gimignano! It was declared a UNESCO architectural world heritage site and no doubt indeed.
