    Teluk Chempedak Beach

    What I love about this beach is that I grew up there and this is where I'm from...not from the beach but the town called KUANTAN. This is the place like any other tropical beach minus the sun tanning craze fashion. This is a tropical beach in a fairly medium size town on the east coastline of Peninsula Malaysia. A very south-east Asian place where the locals don't strip to the max to enjoy having fun at the beach.

    Melnrage 2. beach

    If you like to walking on the beach and you are male, then all the beaches in Klaipeda are kind of small for you, but not because of the width, but because of the length. There is a silly system which I will try to explain you: every 200 meters on the beach there are beaches which are only for women.

    Derrick & Team

    It was my luck to have such a big network of friends, working in all kind of different fields. One day, a friend of mine who is working in a Media&Production company, Edan, called me up. However, he did not directly mention the reason why was he looking for me. Just kept asking if I have time on the coming Monday noon time, so I tried finding out his intentions.

    Stockholm’s archipelago - Stockholms Skärgård

    Although living in a city endowed with numerous green spaces, the inhabitants of Stockholm aspire only to one thing, as soon as the beautiful season returns: live like a Robinson, in an old wooden hut on an island.

    Tokyo Disney Sea Park

    The place to go is Tokyo Disney Sea Park in Japan. The rides are great and the Lomographic opportunities are endless. For the thrill seekers there is the "Tower of Terror", for the little ones there are lots of tiny ferry's wheels and the like. There are so many different parts of Disney Sea Park that you can easily get lost.

    Pisa

    Oh, who in the world hasn't heard of Pisa and its infamous leaning tower?! I remember my parents had one of those tacky tower lamp souvenirs from their many trips abroad (I'm from the Philippines) and knew the moment I had the chance, I too would make my way to that lovely little city and take in the tower myself. And that I did.

    Crystal Beach

    The Philippines is not that well-known for its surfing spots but ideal locations are slowly sprouting up and being discovered and unearthed one by one. The nearest one to Manila would be Zambales, a 3 hour drive north.

    Paros

    Paros is one of the biggest islands of the Cyclades. My friend and I spent most of our time in the island's capital Parikia where we arrived with the ferry from Piraeus. It's a nice town with cute little streets, all in the typical white and blue, and nice shops and restaurants.

    Missiri Mosque

    Two kilometers from the center of Frejus (south of France, Var) on the road to Bagnol (D4), you will find a replica of the Great Mosque of Djenne (Mali, Africa). It was built in 1930 by the Senegalese infantry based in Frejus. Of course, it is smaller than the original, built in concrete instead of banco, and abandoned, but with its red walls and decorated towers, it like a tiny part of Africa shinning among the pine trees.

    Naples

    The first impression when you are in Naples is 'dirt', 'chaos', 'disorder'. As you get used to it, you start enjoying the city. If you are brave enough to drive, you will probably notice that the traffic chaos is in fact a super-efficient way of moving along the city. You do not have to panic when are completely surrounded by Vespas or when in a two lane street there are three rows of car (or even more!).

    The Eagle and Child

    The Eagle and Child is a pub in Staveley, a village between Kendal and Windermere in Cumbria at the southern end of the Lake District national park. The main road carrying heavy tourist traffic from the M6 used to pass right through the village, separating the pub from its riverside garden, but the construction of a by-pass several years ago has meant that you can now get your pint across the road without too much risk of getting flattened.

    Lake Geneva

    I discovered the Lake Geneva this summer during a little week end at friend's home. Wasn't exactly at Geneva, but in the nice city of Nyons, about 20 km from Geneva but still at the lake! This lake is really huge and the panorama that's in front of you let's you think about a seaside and not the Alps!!

    The place to visit is Odaiba, Japan. Odaiba is a large artificial island in Tokyo Bay and the spot for many great Lomographic shots.

    Vientiane

    In such a short time Laos has carved its way into my heart with smiling people, beautiful nature and cheap beer. I arrived in Vientiane after a 12 hour bus ride from Bangkok which dropped me off at 4.30 am at Nong Khai bus station, I sat, waited...finally a tuk tuk driver came and told me the border opens at 6, we went, I sat and waited while the most breathtaking sunset lifted the veil of darkness from the sky...pink and yellow shards fighting for space on a bleak, blue canvas.

    Eternal Flame

    The biggest attraction on the Independence Square of Toshkent is in my view the eternal flame at just opposite to the Turkistan-palace at the right corner of the square. I don't really know about the west, but eternal flames had been a big hit and a necessity in most of the Eastern-European capitals.

    I always play it at church-garden in Lindhorst. They have two places there where you can play. When I started, I thought it was a quite boring game. You throw a little wooden ball they call piglet and a heavy metal ball. And wait. Till they tell you, it is your turn again. All balls look the same and I didn't understand who is next.

    Olympia Stadium Berlin

    The Olympia stadium in Berlin is the most beautiful stadium in the world... in the eyes of all fans of the local football club Hertha BSC. And so is my opinion. It was built for the Olympic Games in 1936 and therefore it was built majestically to serve Hitler's delight in eternal propaganda for the German Reich.
