The Pale Blue Door - Dinner in a Traveling Wonderland

•••
About a week ago, I got an exited email from a friend in London telling me about something called the Pale Blue Door. A type of supper club that travels around the globe always building a magic space made of old wood and things they find or they are given to then open their pale blue door to their guests for just 12 nights during the course of 3 weeks. 3 inc[...]

Sundays at Mauerpark - a Berlin institution

•••
When you come to Berlin, there are a few things you should do. Party at Berghain and Bar 25, eat a currywurst, go shopping in Mitte and if you're here during a Sunday you definitely must not miss Mauerpark on Sundays. What started out as a pretty rad and large fleamarket, has slowly turned into the most important social event of the week. Unpretentious and e[...]

My day at the Grand Canyon

•••
Dear Travelettes, during my recent trip through the United States, me and my buddy Anthony had one very particular destination in mind, which, for different reasons was close to our hearts. While I had been craving a visit to the Grand Canyon ever since I had named my other blog Glamcanyon, Anthony had a special mission to fulfil and he made me his sid[...]

A love for Italy

•••
Italia. Nothing to say about Italia that is not dipped in admiration, longing and pure love. Italy is the one country I can never get enough of. A place where I never get a feeling of "ok that was nice, and now i want to go back home". I think it's safe to say that one day I will purchase a beautiful apartment somewhere in Naples where I will spent those mon[...]

Modern pilgrimage routes

•••
What is a pilgrimage? In former times, pilgrimages were mostly inspired by religious beliefs, for example the Way of St. James to Santiago in Spain, the city of Mekka or the journey to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Modern pilgrimages do not focus on religious beliefs, but on places we know from movies or books or places where a famous person has lived or[...]

‘Flying by the Seat of my Pants’ and other great travel books

•••
I recently read this collection of short travelling stories compiled by Don George for Lonely Planet, and it was truly inspirational for me to take chances and plunge into the unknown of the world! Some of the funniest experiences can come from when you are running loose in a foreign country and the anthology includes tales from unusual destinations and circ[...]

Outdoor Cinemas in Berlin, Paris, London and New York

•••
Open air cinemas are a wonderful invention. Sitting underneath the stars in a folding chair with your buddy/boyfriend/cousin/mom and dad/neighbor watching a movie you've always wanted to watch while sipping on a cool beer is a great way to spend your summer nights. My first time in an open air cinema was in Paris, where they show free movies at different [...]

Chatting to the Six Six Sick girls about New York City

•••
I first met the six six sick girls about 4 years ago when I lived in New York for a while. Back then, these (then) 3 fine ladies ran one of NYC's best clubnights called Six Six Sick, at a place called Happy Ending, ever Tuesday. I loved them right away because each week they designed their own outfits and treated all their guests as friends. These days, the[...]

Gringo Trails - a Documentary

•••
I stumbled across this today on Vagablogging and really felt like I should repost here and share. Gringo Trails is a documentary in production about backpackers and their impacts on the places they visit. Pegi Vail, an anthropologist at Columbia University, explores these impacts on locations in Thailand, Mali, and Bolivia. Though the segment on Bolivia h[...]

Radisson Blu is offering just that to the person who can get as many people as possible to vote for them. Obviously I signed up and in m[...]
