    Kaliningrad

    Have you been in Russia? If yes (the main part of it with St. Peter or Moscow), then try Kaliningrad Oblast, or Kaliningrad Area and especially the main town itself. It is situated near the Poland and Lithuania and still has got a pure sense of USSR. Imagine that there are still numbers on the shops, like magazine No.34 in one village and magazine No.35 in the next village just 3 kilometers away.

    The Grand Place

    Belgium is a tiny country with Brussels as its capital. I find that many people bypass it on their travels...in fact a lot of people don't even know where on the map it is! Sad! I'm sure the only thing they can relate to it is probably the actor Van Damme or Brussels sprouts.

    Lomo Days Festival

    Lomo Days Festival in Vilnius, Lithuania was organized and curated by me, Neja aka Julia Svetlova, in Lithuanian capital Vilnius for the 1st time in May 2006.

    Vacation in Amsterdam

    Amsterdam... one of my favorite cities I have ever spent my holidays! There are lots of sightseeing objects in Amsterdam, for example the Van Gogh Museum. It is the main museum with Van Goghs works, also very early ones. Also very interesting is the Rijksmuseum, where you can watch Dutch art from 16th to 19th century or the Rembrandthuis, which was the house of Rembrandt (what a surprise!).

    Hot Air Balloon Festival

    I still remember when I first encountered these giant flying balloons that carry baskets underneath. I never knew what they were until my brother told me they are called hot air balloons. Hot air compressed inside the balloon makes it float like giant picnic baskets soaring through the garden.

  • Exeter College Chapel

    Exeter College Chapel

    Although Oxford is packed full of (probably) lovely college chapels, the best one is definitely Exeter College's (although I am perhaps biased since it's my college and all, but that doesn't matter, it's definitely worth a visit). It might not be St. Peter's or the Sistine Chapel or anything, but one thing it certainly has over them is how quiet it is - it's a hidden gem of Oxford, in a college that most tourists seem (stupidly) to pass by, so you'd be very unlucky to be stuck in the middle of a big tour group.

    Brighton Town

    I live in Brighton and I have lived here for just under 1 year. I moved from London to live in Brighton because I wanted to live in a house close to the sea. Brighton is an amazing little City on the South Coast of England. In fact, they call it London by the sea. I love Brighton because it has so much to offer. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. There is also the added attraction of being on the coast. Generally, coastal areas in the UK tend to be a bit dated and scummy but not Brighton. The beach at Brighton changes every different day you visit. In the winter the waves crash against the coast and in the summer it is like a still swimming pool.

    Fort Santiago

    One of Manila's main tourist attractions is Fort Santiago. It is one of the most important cultural and historical sites in the country. It served as a military base for the Spanish, American and Japanese troops during their occupation of the Philippines. It has been carefully preserved to pay homage to the country's colorful past. Fort Santiago was once a torture chamber for dissidents and political prisoners, including the national hero Jose Rizal. Rizal spent his last moments here before he was executed. The Fort is now converted to a shrine to Rizal with different memorabilia and factoids about the hero. Fort Santiago is located at Intramuros, Manila and is easily accessible by bus and Jeepney as long as the route is going to Quiapo.

    Nou Camp Stadium

    In the summer of 2005 we all went to the Nou Camp stadium in Barcelona for a visit. It was truly impressive - it felt quite a small ground, due to the way it is constructed, but the capacity is huge - 112,000. Unfortunately we arrived 2 days after the last game of the season, so we couldn't see Barcelona play.

    Nature lover? Here is a great opportunity for you to experience the great flora and fauna paradise. Lomography lover? Here is a good spot for you to take some high quality pictures. Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) situated 600-ha site in Kepong, 16 km northwest of Kuala Lumpur is surrounded by Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve. Although it is a research institute, it has fascinating views and places which nature lover will easily fall for. Especially as a Lomography lover, you should not miss it. This place offers beautiful lakes, branches of trees and blooming flowers which turn out to be gorgeous on the pictures. As you are driving through the whole forest, you can see a lots of research buildings. Yet, those are not the things we are focusing on. The most important and special thing about FRIM, is the great view of the lakes and plants.

    Trains - “Die Bahn”

    What do we do when we have to get from point A to point B? We choose the vehicle... Options are endless, but we all know, that planes are fast, but expensive, and on the other hand - cars are cheap, but slow... What to do? Choose trains!!! There is a huge railway web all around Europe, and lots of companies offer different "good deals" for traveling at the very low cost. My favorite is the German Railway, or "Die Bahn" as it is called in German.

    Grande Corniche

    The Grande Corniche is one of the 3 coastal roads going from Nice to Menton and the Italian border. There's the Basse Corniche (lower coastal road), the Moyenne Corniche (middle coastal road) and the Grande Corniche (High coastal road) also known as the road D2564 (see this link for the exact location of the road: "http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html":http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html). This road was constructed by Napoleon the 1st at the beginning of the 19th century and was the only way to go from Nice to Menton. Take the beginning of the road in Nice, near of the port, and follow the signs "Observatoire" or "Grande Corniche". It's climbing until 500-800m above the sea and that's why it's one of the best places to admire the beautiful Mediterranean landscapes of the Cote d'Azur. The whole area around this road is a natural park with beautiful forests and a lot of walking possibilities through the park.

    Kaunas Days Festival

    Kaunas - is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club "Žalgiris", basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the "Kaunas' Days" festival (sometimes it is called only the "Day", not "Days").

    Blue Ridge Mountains

    Right before school had resumed, my father and I took a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. We went hiking every day in the mountains. These pictures are from when we reached the summit of Sugar Mountain. It was a gorgeous day as we ate wild blueberries and braced ourselves from the fierce winds against the sharp boulders.

    Tell me who doesn't like water? Or maybe swimming? Everyone in the world once in the lifetime goes for a swim, so did I and my friends. Of course it wasn't first time for us but still we had a very good time. If in the other life I would need to choose what kind of animal would I like to be, then I would choose to be a fish.

    Mingė village

    Ok, this story is very funny. First of all, I am going to talk about a little village in south western part of Lithuania, near the Minija river, which flows through the Klaipeda town (third town in Lithuania, near the Baltic Sea). The village is really small, there are about 30 houses and the same amount of native families, living there... so where is the whole fun? First of all, there are no streets in this village.

    Saint Clair Convent Cemetery

    The Franciscans funded the Saint Clair Convent back in 1673 and their cemetery is on the right side of the convent complex. It's very peaceful place, where Taubaté's people commemorate their loved and missed ones. It's one of oldest cemeteries of the city. On that same cemetery were they buried lots of important Taubaté's historical characters, we can see many Christ's statues, cool stone tombstones and the richest families mausoleums that are very creepy at night (ok, I can walk inside the cemetery at night, but shhhhh, don't tell to anyone), but very cool to shot at daytime.

    Ravello has the most divine panoramic view of Italy! Ravello is situated near the Amalfi coast, in Italy, near Naples, on a splendid position, on a rocky spur astride the Dragon's and Reginna's Valleys. Ravello was an important town of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200. But when the people from Pisa attacked and sacked it, a slow decline began.

    Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife

    Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife is an ecological sanctuary within the city. It has mini zoo, lagoon, amphitheater, fishing village and vast areas of greenery's. This is my personal favorite spot to take pictures. The relaxing atmosphere and the serene manmade lake are just the extras. It has an enormous park land area hence there are plenty of sceneries to choose from. Great place to go for picnic and test your new rolls of film and cameras nevertheless.

    Arles

    Arles is an ancient city in the south of France, in the Bouches-du-Rhône county. Arles was established by the Greeks as early as the 6th century BC. The Romans took the town in 123 BC and expanded it into an important city, with a canal link to the Mediterranean Sea being constructed in 104 BC. However, it struggled to escape the shadow of Massalia (Marseille) further along the coast.
