Glamping is one of those travel trends that sounds good & looks even better. It’s the thing to do if you’re a glamorous Travelette who sometimes likes to kick off her heels in a pretty tent cabin before heading out for an afternoon in the trees. We’ve previously shared some of our favorite places to go glamping in Australia, but we’re ready to take it outta the Outback (so to …

New York summers can be tough: It’s hot, it’s humid and it feels like there is no air left to breathe.

Spending a week in the Californian desert was certainly never on my bucket list and yet it belongs to every Cali – Las Vegas roadtrip. I’m more of a forest and mountains kinda girl and my heart was aching when we had to leave the green meadows of Yosemite National Park behind us. What we were to find was a seemingly neverending desert of orange, brown and purple stone and …

On a recent trip to Los Angeles, the Madonna Inn was top of my list of California landmarks to visit. The phrases, “themed rooms”, “everything is pink”, “champagne cake” and “top 10 bathroom in the world to visit” kept cropping up and I knew I had to see the Madonna Inn for myself.

Let me tell you about a guy from New York City. He is a singer/songwriter and self-proclaimed hopeless romantic – a species of which there are quite few among the city’s 8 million souls.

In the end, …

We all know that the finest cities in the world – New York, London, Paris – are full of the finest people. And when I say “finest” I mean weirdest, of course. The strangest, quirkiest and most odd individuals who bring the city colour at night, sunshine in winter and keep the world turning.

Imagine a tiny town in the high desert of far West Texas. A place that was once established as a water stop, named after a character from a novel, and that is now famous for art installations and mysterious ghost lights. Sounds intriguing? Welcome to the City of Marfa.

I first heard about this far away place when reading an article about the Prada store in Marfa. Yes, you heard right: …

Traveling the world at few or no expenses is one of the many things that I love about New York City. There’s of course nothing like an actual trip abroad that comes with the planning, the packing, and the journey itself. And then there also is the ever growing bucket-list: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo, experience Holi, and party at the Chinese New Year. In New York, you can have it …
