    World's Largest Dinosaur - Summer Road Trip - LomoStop #1

    In July 2009 I took an 8000 km road trip with my wife, two young children, and my mother- and father-in-law. Yes. That sounds a little crazy - but in order to keep my sanity (and test theirs) - I took along 10 cameras and 40 rolls of film. We passed through 10 American states and 3 Canadian provinces, and only ran over 1 wild pheasant. This was our first notable stop.

    Ride the Duck in London

    In many of the places I've travelled, I've seen small, yellow amphibious tour buses -- the ubiquitous 'Ducks.' In some places the pleasure cruisers are encouraged to blow duck whistles, but everywhere they tour on land before descending into the city's waterway. I decided to become a tourist in my own town and ride the London duck.

    High Tatras (Tatranska Lomnica)

    The High Tatras are one of the smallest and, let's be honest, one of the cheapest to visit mountains in the whole Europe. But, mister Criticism, let's start things from another side. It has high altitudes, huge snow and brilliant skiing routes in winter, and it can offer beginner-intermediate routes for hiking in summer. What is more, the places are clean, beautiful and capturing the breath.
