Skiing and snow biking in the Austrian Alps

•••
My best friend always says she doesn't need a psychologist because she's got the mountains. And that's right, what else could you possibly need!? My last trip to more hilly spaces led me and my mum (!) to Obertauern, a ski area in the heart of the Austrian Alps. And no, that wasn't back in January, it was in late April - because it snows until May in that pa[...]

48 hours on Germany's largest island

•••
Where do you go when you live in the big smoke and find yourself a little overwhelmed by all the work and the deadlines that are piling up on your desk? In London, that place was Brighton. In Berlin, that place is the Baltic Sea. So last week when said deadlines were getting on top of me, I threw all books, magazines and electronics into my friend's car and [...]

Roadtripping Along Portugal's Coast

•••
I'm sure many of you would agree that road tripping is one of the finest ways of traveling. So when I recently hit Portugal's road to shoot a story for Volkswagen Magazine - hence getting an excuse to escape a rainy and wintery Berlin - I knew I'd be in for a treat. Bernhard Huber, a talented and hilarious photographer from Munich, met me in Lisbon and took [...]

How Valencia's Street Art is Kicking Ass

•••
The one thing I loved most about Valencia was getting to speak to a bunch of local creatives who are really passionate about both the city and their art. Jaume Gómez Muñoz is one of them, he guided me through the city's most iconic pieces of street art. He holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Valencia and is an expert in urban art and graffiti. [...]

From Tehran with Love

•••
There's this constantly growing fascination for Iran bubbling inside of me and it's so strong that I'm planning to visit Tehran in the next coming weeks or months. Part of that has been being introduced to Les Persiennes in a recent magazine article which I read on a plane. Nilufar Khalessi, the founder, is from Iran and lives in Paris. She runs the online m[...]

Why Valencia Should Be Your New Favourite European City

•••
Maybe it was because I had so few expectations or little time to think about it, but Valencia won my heart by storm. The Spanish seaside town literally had everything I could have wished for: parks, great cafes to work and read in, passionate artists who are up for talking to strangers (me), a lively street life, awesome food - and a chill atmosphere. There'[...]

Five female illustrators you need to meet

•••
I'm not just a little late to that whole illustration game... For some absolutely inexplicable reason I've always been more fascinated by either photography or abstract art until it made click a few weeks ago. Now I can't get enough of the different styles, the landscapes, the stories - and the personalities behind them. So here are five ladies whose sketche[...]

Who's in for a girly sleepover in a castle? Wait, what? Yes, I'm serious. I've just spent two hours scrolling through pictures of castles that you can actually rent, some are more affordable than others of course. Villa Sola Cabiati (Italy) via Welcome to your personal fairytale right next to Lake Como! The private pool isn't even the best thing about t[...]

What every city can learn from Ljubljana

•••
Towards the end of this summer, just when I thought I had seen all there is to see about Eastern Europe, Ljubljana happened and it blew me away within, erm, probably two minutes of exiting the train station. It had everything I was looking for: small-town lanes, laid-back cafes, that certain "everything is possible" vibe, a beautiful sunset over the canal - [...]

After Paris: Why we need to fight fear

•••
I was just about to close my laptop in a really cozy hotel room in Valencia, Spain, after what I thought was a really exhausting day, when my Twitter feed started going mental. The effect of the shootings at the Bataclan, the restaurant on Rue Bichade and the bar near Stade de France became bloodier with each breaking news push notification that made it onto[...]
