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[...]

New York's best outdoor offices

•••
This month I am treating myself to a special adventure because I am spending it in New York! As you can imagine this isn't an entirely cheap endeavor - flights, rent, food, it's got its price spending a lush 4 weeks in the city. I comfort myself with this splurge by the fact that I do work while I am here, I am not just out partying 24/7. I have also been ve[...]

6 sights you have to see on your first trip to New York

•••
When hitting up New York City, you can feel overwhelmed when trying to pull an itinerary together. If you're on your first trip to the Big Apple, you just have to give in to the fact that you'll barely see the tip of the iceberg and will have to head back for another good nose around. It's a magical city that never sleeps, with fun around every corner and de[...]

15 awesome things to do in San Francisco

•••
I have a thing for California, I guess I told you so already. San Francisco makes me blush, I’m that kind of girl! When I rode my rattletrap rental bike down the cities’ hills for the first time, just a few years ago it happened -  from that moment on I could not stop thinking about the gloomy clouds tenderly petting the Pacific surface. I love the hills, th[...]

Unboxing Hawaii - 10 reasons to visit the Aloha State

•••
If you pronounce Hawaii properly it's Hawai-i with a double-i, that sounds like the mating call of a colourful and rare bird - sweet, light and darn seductive. So I followed it. Graciously invited by GoHawaii, I went on a 5-day-long island-hopping trip to three of the eight main islands of Hawaii: Maui, Oahu and the Big Island. A trip to find that bird. [...]

In photos: Dream away to California

•••
     Dreamboat boat. At the canals of Venice in LA. Would not mind living here. Ever since my 14-year old self fell in love with this song song I could totally see myself with long, sandy hair, casually holding on to a surfboard somewhere on Venice Beach. I'm a bit older (and maybe wiser) now and I'm still not very good at surfing (yet), but California has [...]

16 Stops for the Perfect New England Road Trip

•••
You’ve seen the lighthouses. You’ve marveled at the fall foliage. You know that New England is a region of beauty, and this must-see destination is just built for the road trip crowd. At 72,000 square miles – slightly larger than the state of Washington – New England is an easily navigable road trip destination sprinkled with attractions and adventures j[...]

This Woman Hiked across North Carolina - TWICE

•••
Maybe you have read (or seen) 'Wild' and have been utterly inspired to give long distance hiking a try yourself. Maybe, like me, your desire to hike across a region, state or country goes back further than 2012 when the book was published. Or maybe you're still not so sure about why anybody would want to go through the pain and torture that is long-term hiki[...]

A year full of Travel and void of Regrets

•••
I have been “home” for a combined total of 14 weeks this past year. I can confidently say that I have friends all over the United States. I have been to places that I never knew existed and I have met people that have changed my life for the better. Most importantly, I have learned so much about myself and about the inspiring world around me. I have been [...]

What Makes me feel at Home in Colorado?

•••
Everyone knows that the holidays are typically when you head home. Home means different things to different people; sometimes it doesn't even mean a location, but a group of people. Sometimes it is getting away from people and heading to a place. For me, home has more than one meaning, because I have more than one home. On the one hand it's going to Target w[...]
