    Kazimierz

    A few minutes walk south of the Old Town of Krakow, and separated from it by the Jozefa Dietla Street, lies the old district of Kazimierz. Until 1880, Dietla street was a tributary of the Vistula river, and Kazimierz an island.

    Capri

    As long as I remember I've always wanted to visit this island. I finally had the chance last April while on a trip with friends. We stayed in Sorrento, so Capri was easily accessible by ferry boat. We were rushing about enjoying the other sights of the Campania region and just managed to catch the last boat to the island.

    My journey to the Yellowstone National Park started from Salt Lake City in Utah although the park mostly belongs to Wyoming. It took about 6 hours to drive up north to the park from Salt Lake City.

    Rome

    AH, Roma the eternal city! Always one of the most visited cities in Europe. What's not to like? The gorgeous cobbled streets, the ancient architecture, the history, the Italian culture, the food, wines, gelato! Best thing to do is to throw away your tourist guide, and hop on the metro or buses and discover the city on foot.

    Holker Garden Festival

    Us Brits like nothing more than a grand day out in a posh person's backyard. One such event is the Holker Garden Festival held in the parkland at Holker Hall, near Flookburgh in south Cumbria, just a stone's throw from Morecambe Bay.

    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.

    Canadian Vimy Memorial

    During the First World War, my region, the Pas-de-Calais was the place of many battles. In Vimy (my city), on April 1917, a great offensive was launched by Canadian Corps, the battle was terrible and many soldiers were killed there, but the Canadian succeeded in taking the ridge of Vimy to the Germans.

    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.

    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.

    Klaipeda is the third largest city of Lithuania. It is situated in the Western part of the Lithuania. It is an ice-free port with favorable geographical position on the coast of the Baltic Sea and Kursiu Lagoon, within close distance to other Baltic Sea ports like Kaliningrad (in Russia) and Riga (in Latvia).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The desert museum is similar to a zoo, but a bit different. Everything that they have on display is from the desert, and is from the nearby vicinity.

    Stadionbad (Vienna)

    One of my favorite summer locations in Vienna, the Stadionbad is located in the heart of Vienna's Prater. Be sure to drop by this amazing swimming area under the blue sky, including 4 or 5 pools, lots of trees and green, a real wave-simulator and most importantly amazing Lomographic objects: right here the center of young proletarian-Austrian bathing culture is at home.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's a sad story really, not far from the excellent Vancouver Aquarium, just a short walk of about 100 meters you will find an abandoned Polar Bear Pit which was once a part of the now defunct Stanley Park Zoo.

    Zeche Zollverein – World Cultural Heritage

    Zollverein in Essen was the largest modern colliery of the world. This industrial complex was designed in symmetrical Bauhaus Style, and formed the heart of Essen's quarters - Katernberg and Stoppenberg, where most of the miners lived in small houses or flats, with gardens on the back to cultivate potatoes and vegetables, have a goat for milk (this goat they called "miners cow"), and sit there after work to smoke a pipe and talk with the neighbors.

    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".
