    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.

    Cemetery of Bruce Lee

    I didn't even know, that when legends die, that they have to lay down in a cemetery. That they are nothing but normal Earthly creatures that pass away one day sooner or later. I was recently in Seattle and after a few days I kind of got bored and flipped through the hotel-journal to find other interesting spots in town.

    White House Coffee Shop

    It is a small but famous coffee shop with an easy-to-remember name- White House. Located in front of the mosque in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. This is the place where you can have a very fine coffee and great toast with Kaya (coconut jam), and of cause you wouldn't want to miss their half-boiled eggs.

    Dali Town

    China is a huge country and with so many differences between the people and the geographics. You have sharp mountains and round mountains, Banantrees and desert and Han-Chinese and Minorities. And there are so many of them. And the perfect spot to feel this diversity is the province Yunnan.

    Congo

    The RD du Congo is that huge green spot in the centre of the African continent. It's a country with a sad past. This summer they had elections for the first time in 30 years. Kabila Jr and Bemba were the two main candidates. Finally Kabila made it. I went to Likasi, a small town (200 000 villagers), above Lubumbashi, the second biggest city of Congo (2 million people).

    Rave Festival (San Francisco)

    This is not such a nice festival for a kid to go but for me, I won't miss it if I have a chance to attend one of them. Dj, trance music, rave, light show, argon laser beam, visual - all of these elements is what I love about raves. SF is one of the cities that has a best rave event to attend.

    Viana do Castelo

    Well...I like to spend my expired, x processed, cheap rolls of film in my home town, Viana do Castelo and on the city I currently live, Braganca. They are both great places to shoot, especially during the summer. Lots and lots of people on the streets and lots and lots of light for some clear shots.

    Ipoh Railway Station is situated in the state of Perak, Malaysia. It was built in the 1800's, during the tin mining era in Malaya (the former name of Malaysia). Known as the "Taj Mahal" of Ipoh, it is an impressive landmark combining the Gothic and Moorish architecture plus modern embellishments.

    Köln Cathedral

    I am not sure if I am correct, but a lot of natives call this THING not the cathedral, but simply the Dom. And this is not a simple cathedral nor a church it is a huge and massive and saint building, that captured my breath after the first eye-glance.

    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.

    Toronto is an amazing place to visit. There is so much to see. To get your self started, I would recommend taking the open top bus tours.

    Marseille's Seaside

    I'm more a mountain boy than a seaside guy, I mean I like chilling on the beach, but I get bored after a few hours (not to say minutes)... But this seaside is different... First of all, apart for the artificial people-filled sand beaches near the town center, you will hardly find some sand around Marseilles but only limestone carved and sometimes even polished by the sea and the wind. And that's what makes it great to my eyes, the wildness of this rocky landscape diving directly into the green-blue sea, of the mistral wind which is quite always blowing in this place, and of the wave breaking on the rocks.

    Camp John Hay

    If Manila is getting too hot for you, a 6 hour drive north will give you to the cool mountain air of Baguio. It is in here that you will find Camp John Hay, the last bastion of the American occupation which was turned over to the Philippine government and made into a luxury destination.

    Mont Saint Michel St Malo and Lille

    After my Super Sampler decided that it wouldn't work in South Africa, I ripped the film out and put it in my new Fisheye (a few months later) and set off! (Note elephants seem to be now a feature at the Mont Saint Michel).

    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.

    Little India

    Little India is one of the most ethnic districts in Singapore. All these years, it has managed to retain its charm and color, hardly touched by urbanization. Interestingly Serangoon Road, which is the main artery running through the district, is one of the oldest roads in Singapore. This road was marked on ancient maps as "The Road Through the Island".

    Green Island

    As we approached the angular features of the island set against gunmetal gray skies, I tried to think about what to expect. I realized I knew little of the island, save that it was famous as a prison, had good diving, and had hot springs on the beach!

    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!).

    Prior to the settlement of Singapore the land around the inlet of Sungei Buloh, in the northwest of the main island of Singapore, was dominated by tidal mudflats and mangrove systems.

    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.

    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.

    Genting Highlands

    Genting Highlands is one of the most popular mountain resorts of Southeast Asia. This state of the art entertainment village, built on the Genting hilltop, is a much sought after tourist destination. In addition, Genting has the advantage of the proximity to the capital city, Kuala Lumpur, which helps to make it a popular convention centre. Genting is thus a self compliant destination, which can amuse people of any category, including bachelors, family, women or kids.

  • Island of Serifos

    Island of Serifos

    A small island hardly anyone has heard of, and the locals like it that way. It's mountainous, with rough roads, but heavenly hidden beaches, and villages spreading down Cliffside like medieval or fairy tale towns. Perseus is said to have beheaded the Medusa there, so she no longer has the power to turn you to stone, but too much sea, sand and ouzo could do the trick.

    Quiahuiztlan (Veracruz, Mexico)

    In Mexico`s history, this place was a city with 17,000 inhabitants before the Conquest, and it was in this place where the Spanish first set foot in Mexico more than 500 years ago. Today it is a small village, with fishermen, boats, a few houses, a good restaurant also called Quiahuiztlan and 2 or more miles of beach for yourself and some few more visitors. Even for winter days, it`s a good option for eating seafood, getting a tan (or becoming red if you`re too white), and swimming. Q: Why? A: Because it`s Mexico, and there the winter does not exist.
