Foreign supermarktes: my secret obsession

•••
I love travelling + I love shopping + I love food = I love food shopping while travelling. Wait, what? Ladies, it's time I confess one of my strangest habits: I take an immense pleasure in grocery shopping, especially while I'm travelling. This sounds silly, but it wouldn't be an uncommen sight to see me browsing the aisle of a french Carrefour supermarke[...]

Visiting Versailles in the fall

•••
As one of the largest and beautiful palaces in the world Le château de Versailles should (hopefully) be high on the list of places to visit when you are in Paris. The royal reign at Versailles ended in the late 1700's around the time when the French were in the mood for choping off some heads and thus decapitated their King and Queen (Louis XVI and Ma[...]

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[...]

USA on the road - Pt 1

•••
On my recent road trip through the US, I took advantage of various means of transportation inlcuding planes, buses and cars. The reason why traveling by car was my favorite is because you are free to stop along the roadside as much as you like. When you see somehting, you stop or you turn around. You get out, marvle, take photos, get back in the car and hit [...]

New York Soho - Cafe Habana is for you

•••
New York is full of great places to eat. The art is to find one that has the food you like, the athmosphere you appreciate and the prices you can afford.Since the selection is so big, it's fun to go around and try out different spots to find the spots that you feel are yours. That you can go to again and again, that you show friends and family and that you r[...]

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[...]
