Notes on haggling

•••
Ladies, wherever your travels might take you, chances are you will come across some sort of bazaar, a market or at least a cheapjack selling fake amazingly cheap Ray-Bans in the street. I just L.O.V.E. getting lost in those gaudy allies, admiring local crafts, taking pictures, tasting local delicacies I have never even heard of and – most importantly -[...]

Tips for legitimately traveling LIGHT.

•••
Okay, let's be honest here. We've heard the screams or semi-pleasant whispers of, "less is more," and I KNOW that you probably claim to believe it, to the hilt, every day of your life. EXCEPT for when it's time to pack for a series of semi-short trips smooshed into a big, long trip. This applies particularly when you know you will be staying in a foreign pla[...]

Getting Around Germany: Mitfahrgelegenheit

•••
I first heard about mitfahrgelegenheit while driving from Innsbruck, Austria with my friend Teresa to her hometown in southern Germany.

How to... come home to a cold winter

•••
After a couple of months traveling through South America, I realised I had to come home to my mum who missed me and my empty bank account.  So I decided to fly back home, to get some love and work a little, to pay my next trip. One thing I completely forgot about, was the weather. Returning to Berlin in February, what else could I expect but grey skies an[...]

Biking in the city: this is how I roll

•••
I always found going by bike one of the best ways to discover a city, next to shopping of course.. I love biking because it is environmentally friendly, healthy (read: gives you buns of steel), and it is a great way to get to know a new city without having to smell sweaty armpits on the subway!

On Running (without heels)

•••
It's cheap, it's exotic and it's so so so good. When traveling you often find yourself surrounded by culinary goodness every step of the way. And because you're open and worldly you know that you cannot just order a salad when the restaurant you're in has just won a price for its outstanding curry or chocolate dessert.
