Tourism objects

<p>I travel frequently, in most cases equipped with&nbsp;DSLR camera, tripod and some spare lens. I love to photograph places I have visited, add them to the map, so not only me, but you too can benefit from my discoveries.</p>

Kazdanga Manor

Kazdanga manor is located in Courland historical region of  Latvia. As I have already stated back when visited Snēpele manor -  Latvia is a land of old manor houses and palaces, they dates back from the times when German nobles ruled this territory. A lot of manors one (perhaps you) can find in a historical region of Courland.  As usual, I took my camera and headed here to photograph this manor. Old tree alley and cobble I spent a few minutes on this cobble playing with my gorilla pad…


Gothic Aachen Town Hall (Rathaus) in Germany

| 7 views

After a lovely breakfast at Oebel Backerei we decided to spend a few more minutes in this German town of Aachen. Since this was my first time at this part of Germany, and frankly speaking this was my first time of hearing the name of Aachen I had no idea what I should see in this city. We just started to walk on one of the narrow streets and found this Gothic Town Hall.

Keukenhof Tulip (Flower) Garden in Netherlands

| 14 views

Keukenhof is a paradise for flower lovers and especially for those ones who are into tulips. Keukenhof is located in province of South Holland in Netherlands in town of Lisse. One of the reasons people spend money and travel here from all around the world is a blooming season of tulips. I actually learnt a few interesting facts about tulips here. Like the origin of tulips comes from South Caucasus. And of course I practiced my photography skills here.  In short: Keukenhof is the most…


Marketplace and Old Town Hall in Bonn, Germany

| 11 views

One thing I like about travel photography it helps to recall those amazing places you have visited during your travels. So today looking through my travel photos I found an intereting place, I would even call it a gem - Bonn's Old Town Hall and marketplace near it. In fact during my visit there I had no clue there is a marketplace actually. Cool right? We just headed straight on Bongase street after I took a few photos of Beethoven's House of Birth, and actually we were looking for some cosy…


Beethoven's House of Birth in Bonn, Germany

| 30 views

The idea to visit Beethoven's House of birth arrived from friend of us whom we earlier picked up in city of Koblenz. Honestly speaking I have no idea why he (friend) was so eager to see this place because in fact we didn't see anything more than just a usual dwelling house and a street table on that house indicating that indeed a maestro of all times Ludwig Van Beethoven was born here a few centuries ago. No don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to deny a Beethoven after all his "Ode to Joy" is…


Poppelsdorf Palace And Its Surroundings In Bonn, Germany

| 10 views

We hadn't any plans to visit this lovely and former capital city of West Germany Bonn. Our friend who is living in Germany and we picked up him earlier this day in Koblenz insisted we should visit some place were some Mozart (well actually Ludwig von Beethoven) were born and it turned out to be a city of Bonn. We arrived here at Bonn from a lovely town on the banks of Rhine river Andernach, and parked our car in some residential area - turned out just next to a place which I latter learned is…


Andernach - A Lovely German Town On The Banks Of Rhine

| 49 views

Andernach indeed is one of the loveliest German towns I have visited lately. In fact, I haven't visited Germany a lot. We arrived here after picked up a friend in Koblenz. The town of Andernach is located just some 20 km North of Koblenz. I know some will find it strange to leave a city of Koblenz not seeing it much (just a railway station and a few elevated roads) but that;s the way I (we) like it. I believe we will return to Koblenz some other time. I was very surprised by seeing Germany…


Snēpele Manor

Latvia is a land of old manor houses and palaces, they dates back from the times when German nobles ruled this territory. A lot of manors one (perhaps you) can find in a historical region of Courland. I found this interesting Snēpele manor during a trip back from Kuldīga town. Since I'm eager to improve my photography skills, I did find just another reason to add a new post on my blog.  Snepele manor  I made a lot of shots of this manor by hand (not using a tripod) and just this one made it…


The Venta Waterfall (Rapid) - Widest In Europe

| 17 views

The Venta rapid forms a widest waterfall in Europe. It's located very close to Kuldīga town centre in Latvia. See: Flying Fish over Venta Rapid in Kuldīga I took my DSLR camera and decided to master my photography skills, couldn't say it improved drastic, but here is the thing I was told by a good friend a professional photographer:  If I may say try and get lower angles on the waterfall. Popular idea is to stand in the water if its shallow and not too cold. And if you don't mind to get…
