Meet the fascinating female photographer who portrays women on the streets of NYC

•••
Normally, she’s the expert in asking original questions. This time round though, I caught up with Karina Rozwadowska, who is best known from her street photography and interviews during the Women's March in Washington, D.C. I first came across her beautiful work in ZeitMagazin and have followed her Instagram account ever since. Karina was trained as an art h[...]

Can you travel Thailand as a Vegan?

•••
My recent trip to Thailand was a trip for 'firsts'. It was of course my first trip to Thailand – which ten years into my globetrotting 'career' is much later than the average. It was also my first trip to South East Asia, my first long-distance trip with my partner and my first proper holiday (not blogging-related trip) in a pretty long time. However, it [...]

The Travelettes Itinerary: Hiking in Patagonia

•••
“Don’t ask about the weather forecast, it’s Patagonia” is scrawled on a sign outside one of the campsites on the W-trek. I first saw Patagonia on Pinterest. I can't remember what I was searching for. But I remember the mountain. Ice capped, mythical, surrounded by water tinted a shade of blue all its own. But there it was amid recipes for banana muffins a[...]

Photos which will whisk you away to Chile's Rainbow City of Valparaiso

•••
Located on 44 hills which cascade into the Pacific Ocean, Valparaiso was my last stop in Chile and perhaps my favorite. I only had a day here, which was just enough time to get to grips with the rainbow city, but not quite long enough to explore every nook and cranny of the city, something which I would have loved to do, but perhaps which would take a lifeti[...]

9 Instagrammers to follow this Autumn

I won't ever get tired of talking about how much I love fall. My favorite season is finally back. With changing leaves and woollen sweaters everywhere, I finally find myself having some more time again to re-decorate my apartment, work on that huge pile of unread books that only got bigger over summer (#sorrysooonotsorry) and dream about faraway places.

How to spend 1 Day in New York as a Photographer

•••
What would you do if you had only one day to spend in New York City? Last year I had the chance to explore a bit of the United States and traveled to eight different states in one month. It's a lot of traveling, but I like grabbing opportunities whenever I can. New York City has a lot to offer and for a one-day trip, it can seem to be overwhelming. I wan[...]
