Istanbul is a gigantic city, a real metropolis. Same with the shopping malls, incredible large and diversified, they fill the heart of every shopper. And often you can make a bargain, because prices are not too expensive. After your first visit at a mall you can choose from around a dozen more. 🙂

2016-11-29 TWO TROLLS IN BERLIN

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 November 29th, 2016|Berlin|

It was during a garden exhibition where different disguised people showed themselves on the scenery. I think those were goblins or garden gnomes, however they enlivened the festivities and gave some additional photo motives. 🙂

This rollercoaster is not in the suburbs or peripherals, no, you can find it in the middle of Tokyo. From the top, you have a great view, but only for a short time, because it goes down very fast, it was a thrill ride  🙂

On a rainy day I visited the Grand Bazaar, it’s completely roofed, so no chance to get wet  🙂  And I can tell you, don’t leave Istanbul without a visit, you can get all kind of crockery, often hand made, dried fruits in all variations, carpets, clothing, and don’t forget to bargain before you buy  🙂

2016-11-24 END OF THE PHOTO WALK

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 November 24th, 2016|Vienna|

This was the end of the photo walk, St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna. We started at the exhibition center of “Messe Ried” in the second district in Vienna and went about 3 miles where we took hundreds of photos. It was already night so a tripod was a must, and it was interesting to see the different photo equipments of the other team mates.

2016-11-23 LAKE IN CANADA

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 November 23rd, 2016|Canada|

After bringing back the motor boat to the rental desk, I had a look at the lake in Baysville. There I liked the impression of the mirrored water with the waterlilies. I got on my knees and took some photos. Then I had to hurry up because the crew was already on the parking lot and ready to go to the canoe tour  🙂

2016-11-22 GREAT SIGHTS FROM CHICAGO RIVER

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 November 22nd, 2016|USA|

I would recommend to take the boat tour on the Chicago River, the sights are unmatchable. You start with a longer wait at the watergate, then you enter the part of the river which lies within the city. You get surrounded by buildings with cool architecture, can have a look at the bridges and have an entertaining guide which tells you stories and anecdotes about the city.

2016-11-21 CACTUSES AND FLOWERS IN AMSTERDAM

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 November 21st, 2016|Amsterdam|

On my todo list in Amsterdam was visiting a flower market. I could see thousands of flower bulbs, flower seeds and young seedlings. Some plants looked so cool, that I wanted take them home, too bad, that I live more von 1000 miles away. But nevertheless, walking around was great and I could bring home some new impressions. By the way, I never saw such colorful cactuses before.
