Street art in Cuenca, Ecuador – the secret of turning walls into canvas

You’ve got to admit – graffities are everywhere. It’s simply impossible to imagine yourself in a world where there’s no scratch on the public toilets, no tags on old railway carriages, or on the road signs. But it’s always puzzled me how talented street artists not only fail to get the proper consideration for their works, but are often put in the situation to pay fines.   It’s partly why I’ve always been impressed by…

Exploring the Wonderful Abandoned Architecture in Germany

If you’re thinking that Germany’s architecture is not that spectacular, well… you’re wrong! (and I have to say, so was I).

An untold tale from Central Asia – Uzbekistan in pictures

As I’ve tried to point out in other posts, there are many countries under the auspices of a more general category known as off the beaten path. I stand by the belief that not being the top-of-mind option for travelers isn’t necessarily an indicator of its actual quality as a destination. In fact, most of the times, this etiquette is all about the lack of popularity instead of the place itself. Uzbekistan is one of the many examples on the list…

The hitchhiker’s guide to Antarctica: basic tips

Antarctica is one of the world’s craziest settings in terms of good looks. It’s out of this world and not just because it’s extremely difficult to get there, but the setting looks miraculous and most certainly you are going to end up taking over a thousand amazing pictures and return home with what’s going to look like a photo-journalistic approach of the place.

North Korea how you’ve never seen it before

I’ve never heard anyone say anything positive about North Korea. And neither did the producers of this video, city-branding pioneer J T Singh and flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth. The video is presented as a need to properly inform the Western countries about what really happens there. A city vision through time-lapse photography, explained: There are numerous speculations about the way in which human rights are not respected in this country, how nothing’s popular aside from the…
