Desert Flower - a great movie and an important subject

•••
Instead of going out last night, I decided to have a night in with some DVD's and my 2 boyfriends Ben and Jerry. For a long time I had been tiptoeing around the movie "Desert Flower", based on the life of Somali model and human rights activist Waris Dirie. In the past I had always heard nothing but rave revies about the book, so at least now I had to see the[...]

Lisbon: The thieves market

•••
Feira da Ladra, or thieves market in English, is the oldest and biggest flea market in Lisbon. This is the place to go to recover your stolen mobile, practice your bargain skills or find some incredibly cheap vintage clothes. My greatest scoop was a 70s leather jacket for 10 euros. Since I normally live in Berlin, I’m used to a great selection of flea mar[...]

Berlin stays: The Michelberger hotel

•••
The Michelberger Hotel is one unlike any other I have ever come across. Before I knew it was an actual hotel, I thought it was a night club, as, before its opening a couple of months ago, it hosted various parties including this one or that one or even that one. All those parties were pretty great, not the least due to their excellent location. When I then r[...]

Film recommendation: Into the wild

•••
Dear travelettes I realise that it's not the most forward thing to recommend a movie that is already 2 years old but in this case I will have to make an exception. I just finished watching 'into the wild' and I am still shaking. This movie is about a the true story of a 22year-old dude who graduates from college and then gives away $24.000 to charity t[...]

Ngawang: Story of a political refugee from Tibet becoming a nun in India

•••
Travel is the best time to educate yourself about what's going on in the rest of the world, it's often enough to simply keep an open mind and look at all the options out there. When I learned that it was OK to visit the Tibetan nuns in McLeod Ganj, India, I didn't hesitate to take advantage of this unique opportunity. I was eager to get to know the women the[...]

Amritsar - a different world inside a temple

•••
Amritsar came to me like eyesight to the blind. At one point during my traveling years I decided that I was not interested in temples, museums and sights in general and I regularly skipped those pages of my travel guide in favor of markets, neighborhoods and cafes which is what I enjoy and consider a better testimony of a culture as it exists in the present[...]
