As I told you before I am going to a London trip with a friend (her name is Vivien) and I did a to do list to make use of every minute we have. Along with some spots Vivien wants to check out, this is what I came up with: SHOPPING: Oxford Street (Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Miss Selfridges, All Saints, Primark, New Look) Vintage at Beyond Retro ([...]

Getting Around Germany: Mitfahrgelegenheit

•••
I first heard about mitfahrgelegenheit while driving from Innsbruck, Austria with my friend Teresa to her hometown in southern Germany. We would pick up two strangers somewhere along our way to the autobahn, they would give Teresa 10 euros each for gas, and we would drop them off in Munich before heading onward. All of this was coordinated by a website. [...]

Do drink and travel: What to Taste in Poland

•••
Growing up with Polish immigrant grandparents, I had a lot of ideas what I would encounter when I actually had a chance to visit "the motherland." Prominent themes featured in these fantasies were food, alcohol, and babushkas. When I finally visited Warsaw over Christmas, I was not disappointed in any of these departments. It would take a small novel to desc[...]

SPAIN: San Sebastián - Pirate bay and surferboys

•••
During my 6 months stay in Barcelona, I found myself sitting on a plane one day, on my way to Bilbao at 6 o'clock in the morning. Our final destination would be San Sebastian, though. Our plan was to spend most of the time in "Donostia" (thats how the bask call San Sebastian) and only go to Bilbao for its Guggenheim. The moment I put my feet on Bask soil for[...]

BUDAPEST: A must see, hear, taste, feel.

•••
This is how happy I was the entire time I was there. Seriously. Let me make this very clear. When I arrived in Budapest I learned that not only did I know negative 3% about the city itself, but I knew negative 100% how to properly pronounce the name. If you can do it without sounding like a pretentious non-Hungarian, by all means begin NOW. The correct pro[...]

New year, new travels, less time than ever

Dear travelettes, this is your captain speaking. This website is still so young and already it's totally got on the backburner of things with me working on a ton of new projects. Some in print, some online. This weekend I'll direct my first music video and in 2 weeks is the launch of my new club night. Sounds busy? IT IS! The good news is that I'm traveli[...]

London: Chess boxing and Hula-hoop burlesque

•••
Last weekend I went to London for the first time in ten years, with the goal to reunite with some of my best friends from Norway, party like it was 1999 and work on my British accent. Despite my modest expectations I was pleasantly surprised to get introduced to two previously unknown sports: Chess boxing and Hula-hoop burlesque. When trying to imagine wh[...]

The best club in Berlin (and it's not Berghain)

•••
Before moving to Berlin for good I came here every once in a while, mostly to see friends and party like there's no tomorrow enjoy the occasional night out. On New Years Eve  2009 and with absolutely no expections a few friends and I went to a pretty new Club called .HBC. Right then, just one hour into the new year I stepped into what would become my new fav[...]
