    Every time I visit Berlin it surprises me, this time TENSTATION - the real Station for Tents in the Centre of Berlin, not far away from best Berlin district Mitte. It is very good hosting in summer time, you feel like you somewhere near the lakes, far away from the city, but here you are very close to it.

    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.

    Stockholm Public Library

    If you ever visit Stockholm, don't miss the Public Library, as Swedish call Stockholms Stadsbibliotek. One of the most modern buildings, but build in 1928! The building suffered lots of modifications, but every time Gunnar Asplund changed the plans, it got simpler. At first it was thought to be a classic-modern building, but it ended up being a functionalist one.

    The street art corner

    There is no doubt, this is the corner most involved with street art in Cali. It's extended along the Calle 5 to the Calle 6, from the Carrera 9 to the Carrera 10 containing all the walls and bridges located inside this area. To be more exact you can take a look at "El Sub", another location that I previously recommended.

    Castle Schrofstein

    Burg Schrofenstein, an abandoned castle ruin, is situated north-east from Stanz (a very old village of the Tiroler Oberland) near Landeck. To get there you need a car (it's signposted very well) and you should like hiking because you need to get up to the castle afoot. But if you arrived once you will not regret it.

    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.

    Around Bangkok

    Bangkok days have slipped into unconsciousness... can't remember which day it is anymore... stay in malls for the AC and spend hours walking in the old neighbourhoods to take photos... eating at street vendours tasting the spicy, amazing food.... hanging out with David at his apartment trying to watch Wong Kar Wai dvds on his dodgy computer...watching old Rolling Stones videos at Wong's Place with rampant laughter spilling out into the corners...Taking a nice swim at Knut's house with our cousin Lina... drinking hot coffee in the mornings...eating breakfast at au bon pain... buying t-shirts and other oddities at Chatuchak and Pratunam Market... spending hours in taxis wishing the traffic would move faster... wondering about when to do a day trip to Kanchenaburi... perhaps tomorrow... what day is that?... Monday me thinks... ah... forget it...taking the wonderful river taxi's up to Banglamphu and watching all the backpackers on Khao San Rd.. Going to the cinema and standing to attention for the King...holidays are wonderful... especially ones that drag on into months instead of simply days... when tomorrow may as well be today because it makes no difference, food is cheap, rooms are cheap, the weather is fantastic and the people are friendly.

    Palms at Indian Head Hotel

    You are in the dry Californian desert. Nothing else surrounds you than dusty hills, sandy rocks and a lonesome landscape. Some colorful wildflowers interrupt the barren countryside dominated by cacti and the famous palm trees stick out of the wide land. Nothing to hear apart some scattered coyotes but the never ending sound of silence.

    Ocean Front Cottage (Emerald Isle)

    Breezy - a stunning oceanfront cottage in Emerald Isle, NC. It has three floors, with decks on every floor, 2 bath-tubs, hot tub, elevator, 2 wet bars, 7 color cable TVs including 50" LCD with Digital & HD channels, tons of gadgets, pingpong table, granite counters, stainless steel gas grill, enclosed hot/cold outside shower, and a gorgeous outside deck. Oh, it's amazing. My family used to rent it out a lot, but lately, we're just too busy during the vacation. When we'd go, I would spend days out on the beach. The beach is my home, now I live in Raleigh.

  • Gyeongju

    2008-05-09 #places

    This city is known as an 'outdoor museum', for good reason. Everywhere you look there are ancient buildings, Buddha statues, old temples and, best of all, giant mounds called 'tumuli' in which are buried the bones of ancient kings. Most tumuli are just huge, bare, grassy hills, but one in particular draws me again and again. This tomb of a 1300-years-dead king has about six trees on it - Tim Burtony, craggy trees.

    The Parking Garage (Florida)

    For my favorite spot of lomo fun, I go to a tiny parking garage in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. When I had a class nearby I went fairly regularly and there was a lot of construction going on and a lot of fun signs all about, which I love because I always feel as though signs are shouting at me. Once I was brazen enough to slip past security (who was blaring classical music and chatting up a fairly bootylicious woman) and construction hazards and make it up to the rooftop.

    Mosque on the Mid Levels

    In this vast ether, devoid of all but allure, I am lost. The roads have all merged into one long timeline to which photographs or short poems are added to keep memories fresh. Faces appear in my memory from time to time and I have to go back to that timeline to figure out where I met them, and what we shared. The days shrivel. They pass in blurs, sometimes a few slip by while I wrestle with sleep. The clouds lay heavy. My mind is weighed down in thought. The times are strange. My ability to move forward is hindered by options. I lay swaying in the comatose condition of the condemned.

    Lake of Sainte Croix

    When we organized our little Lomo-meeting with golfpunkgirl and stoonja, we met at the lake of Sainte Croix, one of the favorite spots of stoonja. We took the A8 highway from Nice, and came out at the exit "Brignoles", then, about 50 km through little country roads up in the mountains, we suddenly we discovered the place: a beautiful blue lake in an amazing landscape full of very different colors.
