Nicaraguan Volcano Sledding is something out of our childhood dreams. Imagine sliding down the side of a volcano at 50 mph with dust flying all around. Sounds good to us! The NY Times has an awesome article on emerging sport. As they report: “This was my introduction to volcano boarding, a young adventure activity that has popped up, most notably at Cerro Negro, an ominous charcoal-black volcano in western Nicaragua. Boarders hurtle down the active volcano’s bald, steep slope atop a sledlike piece of plywood, at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. It’s hot, dusty, a little scary — and crazy enough to be fun.” Click Read More for additional information.
One of our favorite Parisian destinations, colette, is hosting a fantastic exhibit by The Selby. We’ve been addicted to The Selby for quite some time. Todd Selby travels to the homes of interesting people, takes photographs of them in their creative spaces and posts them to his site with a short interview. It’s so simple, but so introspective. He’s photographed the likes of Michael Stipe, Michael Dupouy and Frédéric Beigbeder.
Celebrating his book release, colette is showcasing his work with classic grandeur. Be sure to check it out if you’re in town. The exhibit runs until May 2nd, so you still have time. Click Read More for additional information and to view photos of the exhibit taken by Karl Haab.

As flickr reports: “Here you find the old neon signs that were outside casinos that have long since gone. The boneyard is a fantastic commentary on the culture and architecture of Las Vegas from its early days in the 1920’s to today.” We’ve posted a few examples below.

Tokyo’s energy is enormous. Its hyperactive ecology is something to witness. The lights, people, buildings, traffic, subways, etc. It never stops. Samuel Cockedey created a fantastic timelapse showing the city as it moves from day to night. He used a Canon DSLR to capture the footage. Sit back and enjoy.

There is a city vibe that we try to describe, but sometimes words aren’t enough. The energy, movement, feel and beauty of any metropolitan motivates a lot of our travel. Whether abroad or domestic, we love sitting in the center of it all and observing. That’s why we love this video by David Hubert. It’s London in 3328 photos all set to Daft Punk. Get ready!
Photographers Nick & Chloe present a lighthearted look at some of New York’s most well known places. Titled Little New York, the photographs resonate because every time we visit the city, a kid-like feeling jumps out. We can’t help it. There’s so much to see and get into, plus who likes sleeping anyway? I know kids and New York City don’t. Click Read More to for additional information and photos.
Eric Demay is a writer and photographer who contributes to Moco Loco’s magazine review section. He recently traveled to China and captured his trip with 50 posts. That’s it. No more no less.

From Eric: “With 50 posts in total, I’m quite glad of how it all turned out. While I was initially minded to stay away from the computer and not update the blog at all, I found the opposite – with a little planning – quite possible and rewarding…” Click Read More to for additional information and a sample of photos.
