Located in Lesser Poland.  Czestochowa is a place of deep history engraved into the fabric of the land rich with color. In the village of Olsztyn the ruins of King Kazimierz Wielki 14th century castle still stand as the tower overlooks the rolling hills. Where many come to see the Black Madonna in the Pauline monastery of Jasna Gora there lies an abandon train depot encased with graffiti, and durning this time of halloween with thick fog on a cold night, this spot is kinda of eerie. But never the less a sick landscape.

Paia, North Shore Maui

The Hana highway surf shop located in the small town of Paia, a popular stop for many surfers and water sports enthusiasts.Starting out as a sugarcane boomtown now has a artsy, eccentric vibe perfect hangout for artists, surfers and wind sport enthusiasts. Not as well know as Oahu’s North Shore, daily side shore winds that shred the lineups most afternoons means that there are a lot of waves for everyone.
