Ushuaia is the southernmost continental place in the world. It is the usual departure point to Antarctica. In Ushuaia you may see many different types of flora and fauna and is the only place on Earth (besides Antarctica) where you can experience Southern Lights (Aurora australis). You can take there…

El Chalten

El Chalten is famous for it's renowned mountains, Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy. From photographers angle, I always recommend taking with you all the water-proof gear, e.g. raincoats and protection for your camera. Up in the mountains, in the base of Fitz Roy it is super-windy there and you can…

Jemaa El-Fnaa

Jemaa El-Fnaa is the most magical place I have seen so far. Best moment to get there is just before the sunset and to stay long after it. To compensate bad lighting, take your tripod and fast lenses along. In Jemaa El-Fnaa you will see snake charmers, fire swallowers, all…

Lisbon Old Town

Lisbon is one of the most beautiful European capitals with particularly hospitable inhabitants. I recommend taking a Portugese tram to get to the Old Town and have a romantic walk among fado singers, flamenco dancers. You might also want to sit in a barge-bar to listen to local jazzmen, have…

Jerusalem Old Town

Jerusalem Old Town has a very special and unique climate which probably comes from the history of Jesus Christ. In terms of photography, there are many dark interiors, in most of which tripods are forbidden. Therefore I recommend taking high ISO capable camera, fast and stabilized lenses. (more…)

Nikko

Nikko is a UNESCO world heritage site, for good reason. It houses a large complex of historic temples with a very ornate architectural style that is not widely seen in the rest of Japan. Unlike the Western perception of minimalist "Zen" architecture, these temples are encrusted with brightly painted carvings.…

Girnar Hills Trek

Girnar hills isn’t literally a trek (no camping grounds), but a climb of over 9999 steps carved into the mountain, which ends up at the summit that hosts a Hindu temple. On reaching the summit, you can see many mountains further but they are usually not scaled. The entire trekking…

Cherai Beach

Cherai beach is amongst the must-visit places for anyone touring parts of South India. Having a coastline of 15 kms, the Cherai beach is different from many beaches in the sense that it is very clean and shallow and thus, ideal for the purpose of swimming and sunbathing. Being so…
