This is part of a photo essay on Seoul, Korea I’m working on. The image shows a lady in traditional Korean clothing, shot in downtown Seoul.

This is part of a photo essay on Seoul, Korea I’m working on. The image shows the southern half of Seoul, viewed from Namsan, a small mountain in the middle of the city. It seems that the birds somehow belong to the area, because they have always been there, every time I visited over the years, forever circling the mountain. #travel #discover #explore #korea #seoul #namsan #article #magazine #style

...in some areas behind the huts are small parks with tidy lawns, where men in white outfits play a version of bowling, though playing may be a bit of an overstatement. Most of the time, they stare very intently at balls lying in the grass, some distance away. Occasionally, one player will say something. Then the other will squint toward the balls, think for a long moment and say something in response, causing both to nod in agreement. I will never know what any of it means, but I could stand there and watch for hours.

...further back still are colorful beach huts that act as sort of a barrier between the beach and the city. Most of them are quite small, just big enough to hold a table and a few chairs. Yet, people treasure these flimsy dwellings beyond comprehension.
I saw an older gentleman painting the front of a hut and asked him how much a person might have to invest to call a hut his own. His answer: "This one is fourteen-thousand pounds, but the ones closer to the pier are more expensive." (from “A Day at Brighton Beach” published on In Michael’s World. Link in bio)

A Day at Brighton Beach
Even in summer, the turquoise water of the English channel is a bit nippy and, consequently, few people go in further than their upper thighs. However, outside of the water, your options for diversion and refreshment are positively staggering.
There is, of course, the Brighton Pier. The new one, that is. There is a historic structure as well, but it closed in 1975 and has since been left to wither away with every passing day.

Its replacement is imposing, tall, very long and a magnet for everyone from fishermen and families, to gamblers and duck-sized sea gulls, who circle the pier like warplanes, ready to dive for left-over french fries, a piece of donut or whatever people drop as they walk and eat...

Most visitors to the island of Mallorca never make it to Palma, the capital city. But even those who do, rarely venture outside the city center to see what else is there.
Take the east end of Palma, for example. Walking the beachside promenade from the city, which is particularly beautiful along that stretch, will lead you to a small port for sail boats, called Portixol. Once you’ve passed that, you enter the quiet neighborhood of El Molinar, an expanse of low, colorful houses, rarely more than two stories tall. At its heart is a crescent-shaped beach with calm, clear water and beautiful, partly submerged rocks on one side. Around its edges are small cafes, bakeries and restaurants, catering to locals and the few tourists that come here. The fish is fresh, the coffee excellent and prices surprisingly moderate.

El Molinar is sleepy by day, but gets busy in the evening. The promenade extends along its entire waterfront and has plenty of benches, where you can sit and watch the sunset or people strolling by.

In good weather, most cafes and restaurants put their tables outside and the place is abuzz with conversations in Spanish and Mallorquin, the local dialect, till the early hours of the morning.

When you spend enough time in El Molinar, it begins to dawn on you why there are so few tourists there. It’s quite simple really: no hotels. Genius! #travel #discover #explore #spain #mallorca #island #magazine #culture #style #inspiration #documentary #tourism

#travel #discover #explore #norway #oslo #street #documentary #story #article #magazine I wouldn't have thought so myself when I got there, but Oslo makes up for its first impression in unexpected ways. For one, it's by far the most diverse of all the Scandinavian capitals. Walk to the harbor from the central train station and you will see an ultra-modern part of the city. Climb up to the opera house and get your mind blown by its architecture. Or go to Grünerlokka, an easy stroll north of the city center, where men have beards, women don't shave their legs and most businesses are antique shops or cafes... (Keep reading on my site.
