Sarah Hughes: Nelson, British Columbia, Canada

I live in a small, hippy town nestled in the mountains of British Columbia. We are on the edge of a river that opens up into a large lake that is wonderful for swimming although many people find it cold even in summer. I love swimming!  Mountains and water are very special to me. I need to get outside and have an adventure in order to feel settled into a good sense of my [...]

Jo Viljoen: Pretoria, South Africa

Greetings! Here are seven photos to give you a sense of my life in South Africa. Bikers saying farewell to Mandela from the Union Buildings.  We had a ride of honor in his memory from Houghton, Johannesburg to The Union Buildings, where we released balloons and gave him the traditional bikers farewell.  Cullinan is a small town close to Pretoria, with an active diamond mine.  Its quaint old world charm always pleases me. EFF made Thembisa Red.  [...]

Charlotte Crettenand: Switzerland

When I was a child, my family and I used to come to Sion to visit my grand-parents. While driving on the motorway, when I caught sight of the two castles, suddenly appearing, I always knew that we were close and soon, we were going to share meaningful moments with an exquisite plate of "macaronis au fromage."

I choose 5 pictures. The first is the location of Rio de Janeiro in Brasil on the globe. Brasil, Rio de Janeiro, Barra da Tijuca This one is a beautiful view of Rio de Janeiro in springtime. As you can see, Rio is a city located between the sea and the mountains. This means that too many people want to live in narrow strips of land. So it became a culture to live in buildings [...]

Zhao: China

The first three photos were taken in Meishan city of Sichuan province during the Chinese new year. People enjoyed their lives in the square, drinking tea and playing cards. It evoked me about the leisure life style in my homeland. People focused on enjoying lives more than earning money. It's a philosophy of leading a leisure life which lasts for thousands years. I once rode a bicycle from Chengdu to Meishan in a summer vacation 10 [...]
