NYC - 5 coffeeshop favorites

•••
Something I tend to obsess about in any major American city are coffee shops. In Europe we have cafes, which are just as great, but nothing beats a lazy afternoon with a large vanilla latte and a cream cheese bagel while staring at your laptop for 2 to 3 hours and possibly getting some work done. It's a perfect place to daydream and refuel on caffeine. Wh[...]

Brunching with Anna Wintour

•••
Dear travelettes, New York is full of surprises. Just the other day I was googling good brunch spots in Manhattan and after carefully circling in my options I eventually decided to go for the Sullivan Bistro on 169 Sullivan Street in Nolita. Even though it hadn't got any ratings, its brunch menu much more suited my tastebuds than many of the Soho p[...]

Summer 2010 - bikinis or bathing suits?

•••
Dear travelettes, now that the first hot days of the year have arrived I find myself thinking about swimwear. I'm pretty sure that last year my bathing suit came out only for a short week during a trip to Thailand, but for this year I am planning on a whole lot more beach time and it is time for a sparkly, brilliant, star-of-the-beach bathing suit or bikini[...]

Through the eyes of… Kaja Paradiek

•••
Through the Travelettes flickr group, we came across another photographer with beautiful travel shots: Kaja is a 24 year old graphic design student in Stuttgart, in South of Germany. We asked her some questions about travel photography. How is traveling part of your life? I love to travel, to see new places and people. My professor once said: the stre[...]

Through the eyes of....Sarah Bernhard

•••
Sarah Bernhard's photos feel like stills from a movie. Her creative eye is delicate and sensible and creates photos that are so captivating, one wants to live in them forever. Some of her best works were taken on her travels to China. We asked her a few questions about photography and traveling. 1. What's your name, age and where do u live? My name i[...]

I love vintage clothing and whatever city I visit or move to - it is always on top of my to-do things to find out about the best local vintage stores. Having lived in vintage paradise London I have found out about some obvious stores, that are big and very popular, but I've also come across a few undergroundy ones that have great gems.

Packing Essentials: Trench Coat season is coming

•••
What's the weather like when you look outside your window? Sunny? Windy? Rain? Or maybe all of the above? Living in Berlin I'm voting for the latter and from experience I know that places like London, Prague or New York are similar around this time of year. It is hence a good idea to choose your wardrobe carefully when traveling this season. Personally, I am[...]

Drinking Around the World: Hungary

•••
This last fall I lived in Budapest for four months. “Studying abroad” was a nice way to ease into dropping out of my university for a year to bum around Europe. So I spent these four months in Hungary learning about horticultural science and Hungarian language, and I also picked up a few things about the drinking in this fine land. Unlike many of the surr[...]

Santiago de Chile is a paradise for Vintage

•••
Dear Travelettes, no matter what city I travel to, I always go around asking locals one question "Do you know any vintage shops around here?" I asked in Asia, Australia, South America, North America and Europe. I might even ask in Antartica, if I happen to go one day. The most mind-blowing Vintage strip (means a street lined up with tons of vintage sto[...]

Lisbon: Sunday brunch

•••
Eat breakfast like a king queen, lunch like a prince princess, and dinner like a pauper it is said. Even though the brunch is left out, it's my favourite meal – especially together with good friends or a magazine, sun and of course sunglasses to cover up the hangover from last night and to stare at people without getting noticed.. I’ve already found two g[...]
