    Castle Street (Vilnius)

    Vilnius is proudly named the European capital of culture in 2009, so this is why I just have to tell you a lot of good things about it. And if starting about the old part of the town, the first place you must see is the old Pilies g-ve (or Castle Street).

    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.

    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.

    Chocolate Museum (Köln)

    "Enjoy an expedition through 3,000 years of chocolate history, either in reality by coming to the Chocolate Museum in the heart of Cologne" - this is what you get, when you walk in the riverside in Koln and stop just in front of the ship-like place, called the Chocolate museum.

    Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple

    I recently made a visit to the Sri Ganesha Hindu temple in Nashville, TN and it was quite the experience. The amazing and unique building stands a top a hill off on the side of the road and it is so unlike anything in that area that it is impossible to miss.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Breezy - a stunning oceanfront cottage in Emerald Isle, NC.

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.

    Cultural Center Georges Pompidou – Beaubourg

    The main modern art collection in Paris is to be seen in the Center Georges Pompidou - Beaubourg: it's the second most important collection of the world after the famous MOMA in New York. But "Beaubourg" as the Parisians like to call it is also an important cultural center with a huge library, many cultural events (concerts, thematic movie retrospectives and other cultural representations) and is also a fascinating building of a very "futuristic style" of the 70's.

    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.

    Scilly Isles

    The isles of Scilly are amazing, they make no sense to at all, they are 30 miles (approx.) of the coast of the UK and yet they have tropical gardens on the island of Tresco - outdoor ones and all unlike the indoor Eden project, just a few miles away on the mainland. They pretty much all have sandy beaches.
