Do you happen to know those people that always seem to have it together? I’m not one of them. I don’t intentionally look for drama, but I’m open for an adventure. In addition, I own a flawlicious, fast and furious soul, which constantly needs to feed its desire to experience. From time to time that causes some minor problems.
For example, I made an effort to choose a bus that wouldn’t …

When the Tourist Board of Colombo handed me a map of the city, they spontaneously highlighted:

The famous Colombo Fort
The National Museum
Three shopping malls.

Wait. Was that all there was to the Sri Lankan capital? Two tourist landmarks—and chain stores? Thankfully, that was untrue: by exploring a little, I actually gathered 12 cool things to do in Colombo—if you’ve got a few days planned there on your way to the inland and …

It’s no surprise to me the streets of Japan are paved with cute… And here’s the categorical proof. The past few years have seen Japanese photographer S. Morita collecting a rather unusual set of arty images – manhole covers. Yes, strange as it may seem, I have fallen in love with the manhole covers of Japan. Now before you roll your eyes and check to see if I’m writing this …

Even Shakespeare said it, something is rotten in the state of Denmark. In this case, rotten doesn’t mean anything negative, just something different. Being unique is all about standing out, and Denmark does that in a very adorable way. The happiest country in the world has room for everyone no matter the nationality, color or the gender. However, the unexpected cultural habits might shake the newcomers boat big time, if not …

The land down under is a big, beautiful place full of diversity and culture with a touch of danger thrown in for excitement. While Australia may be notorious for its vast array of land and sea animals that can kill you, it also provides stunning views and entertainment that you can’t get anywhere else. From Perth to Sydney and everywhere in between, Australia’s beauty truly is rich and rare. Here …

They say some are born travellers. Some achieve travel. And some have travelling thrust upon them. Or words to that effect, I’m sure. And so, to the latter category must belong Tippi Degré, a little girl who spent the first, incredible ten years of her life growing up in the wilds of Africa.
Born in Namibia in 1990, the daughter of French, freelance wildlife photographer and film-maker parents, Tippi experienced a …

International Women’s Day is a celebration of nebulous origins, and dubious manifestations (should we thank or punch the colleague who holds the door for us “because it’s International Women’s Day”?).
However, this annual milestone has one merit: every year, for one day, it specifically focuses media attention on issues regarding gender equality—and, in this media age, the louder a concern resounds, the most likely it is to be addressed.
International Women’s Day …

I love film festivals. The atmosphere in and around the cinemas is bursting of creativity. Film buffs and journalists from every corner of the world come together to celebrate and cherish film. Filmmakers from everywhere put forward their recent works of passion. On top of some great films there are extraordinary parties to dance instead of sleep. And the best thing: there are so many of them! In Berlin alone …

 When it comes to history of superheroes, the pages of comic books haven’t been overly friendly to the thoughts of heroines with Krypton origins and Spider-Senses. However, the idea of a woman being idolized as a superhero has recently been introduced to the mass. Neverthless, there’s still a long way to go for the more curvier superheroes to enjoy the same kind of recognition than the famous males with capes do.

Picture a wide open landscape of an endless white carpet of snow; patches of old growth forest with trees covered in lichen. Suddenly a flock of reindeer appears from between the white hills: with massive antlers on their heads, and tiny white fur-balls aka. fluffy reindeer calves roaming between their legs. The herd grows bigger, thousands of animals emerge from the forest, moving in harmony like a swarm of birds. …
