    Wapping

    A secret area in London with excellent views for history lovers. Wapping is an area in east London, part of the former Docklands, about which lots of Londoners don't even know. And the ones who know, appreciate it a lot.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Ilha de Marajó

    Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

    Surfin' Munich

    "If everybody had an ocean/Across the U. S. A./Then everybody'd be surfin'/Like Californi-a" Well, when the Beach Boys sang this "Surfin' USA" 1963, they surely didn't think that it would be possible to surf in Munich, hundreds and hundreds km far away from the sea (and more from California of course...)

    The Underwater Halloween Pumpkin carving

    During Halloween time, we're used to buy a nice pumpkin and have fun by carving it and create strange, funny or very frightening faces. Often we make this in our kitchen or anywhere else, but did you ever try to do this by diving 6 meter deep? I'd like to share with you a very funny and unique halloween experience I had the chance to live...

    Magic Doubtful Sound: Is this Norway or New Zealand?

    Exploring the beauty of a Fjord...I thought that this was only possible in Norway but in fact, you can explore the surprising Fjordland in southwestern New Zealand! We went to the Doubtful Sound and despite it's name, there's no doubt that it's one of the most amazing places I've ever seen.

    The most significant body of water surviving from the historical London Docks. Development in the Shadwell area was encouraged by an enterprising speculator named, Thomas Neale who built the chapel, St. Paul's by Shadwell Basin in 1656 (which was rebuilt in 1821).

    Ilford Pan 100: Panchromatism Galore

    I don't remember how I came across this film-gem. But nonetheless, I took this film-gem on a trip to Sweden last summer and I can proudly say that the Ilford Pan 100 is one of the greatest black and films I ever got to try.

    Lake District

    Fairy-tale looking mountainous region in Cumbria, North-West region of United Kingdom. Lots of people think of the UK as a babylon country of hustle and struggle, and eternal fog (you name it). They are always surprised to see the photos of enormously beautiful landscapes this country possesses. Lake District is one of its treasures.

    The 3 Waterfalls of Raiatea

    Raiatea is a volcanic island and besides the beautiful lagoon there are also some impressing huge mountains in the center of it. And as it is raining a lot, there are also some beautiful waterfalls to discover in the mountains. The most famous walk to do inside the island is the one called "the 3 waterfalls".

    The Sea Swimming Pool of Uturoa

    Going to the swimming pool is always cool, but I don't like it when the place is closed and smelling strong chemicals... open air pools are much better, but the chemicals in the water are still there... and what about an open air swimming pool that is open on the beautiful waters of a logoon? That's what I want to show you now, the open air sea-pool of Uturoa!

    A quick guide on a relaxing escape in London. A lot of people think of London as Babylon City of struggle. Not if you have a Plan B in mind. The city is so huge, there's always something for everyone.

    Boulders Beach, South Africa

    Boulders Beach - the African penguins' paradise. Started in 1982 by Adam and Eve of the Penguins, it has grown to about 2200 in recent years. This is partly due to the reduction in commercial pelagic trawling in False Bay, which has increased the supply of pilchards and anchovy, that is so adored by the penguins. They like to eat squid as well. The African penguin is listed in the Red Data Book as an endangered specie.

    More London Square

    One of the most entertaining and panoramic squares of London. It is one of my favorite places in London. Not only because it only takes me 30 minutes to walk here, but because it's new, futuristic, contemporary, facing Tower Bridge and just next to City Hall.

    Sunset Watching at Camps Bay, South Africa

    The best sunset spot in the entire world. If you are into sunsets like me, you would definitely appreciate Camps Bay Beach in Cape Town. It's easy to reach, there are lots of restaurants and bars where you can savor your drinks while enjoying the magnificent scenery of the Atlantic or you can spend hours on the beach itself.

    El Cabanyal: A Former Fishermen's Quarter in Valencia, Spain

    First there was a fishermen's village, then there was a spa, and now I say, 'enough is enough, let's declare this place a national heritage site!' Valencia has developed into one of Spain's coolest cities but some of the old areas are under constant threat.

    Jardine Majorelle - high-fashion cacti in Yves Saint Laurent's private paradise. What a way to start your encounter with Marrakech! Jardin Majorelle was in my top 5 things to do anyway, so it was even better when our hotel's porter gave us complimentary admission tickets to this garden. Anywhere you go in Marrakech, it's worth taking a taxi.
