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[...]

Hitting reset - A weekend in the Hague

•••
One of my first memories regarding the Netherlands is “Hagelslag”, colorful, sugary sprinkles in all the flavors you could wish for. We were little and pimping our “boring” wholemeal bread with the local specialty made my little sis and me fall hard. We l o v e d the Netherlands. (Also, did I mention Vla?!). Later came the fascination with all the gre[...]

A First Timer's Guide to Romania's Highlights

•••
Last spring I had an amazing opportunity to visit Romania, a country which I had not yet been able to cross off my list, but more importantly, the country where my boyfriend comes from. We had previously traveled  to London and Paris together, but this trip was different. It was not just a holiday, it was where he was from; his country, language, heritage - [...]

3 Days in Croatia: More than just a Beach Vacation

•••
Hashtag #exoticbeaches and inevitably the azure shades of Bora Bora, Seychelles or Phuket will compete with each other to get your attention. But what about those looking for a little more than just pretty beaches on their beach vacation? That’s when the aquamarine and turquoise hues of Croatia come in to sparkle and entice, as it offers a lot more than j[...]

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[...]

A Local's Guide to a Perfect Day in Oslo with Siv Jakobsen

•••
No one knows a city better than its locals. We asked musician Siv Jakobsen - who just released her debut album The Nordic Mellow - to share with us her favorite places in Oslo.  Oslo is one of my favorite cities in the world. It is perhaps my favorite city, as I was born in it, and have since been living in a suburb of it. After taking a 5 year stint [...]

Why a Trip to explore The Hague should be on your Bucket list

•••
When you think of The Netherlands, you think of Amsterdam. Its grand canals, its cute houses, its thousands of bikes and probably its direct yet friendly-in-their-own-way locals. But what if I told you that there’s far more to the Netherlands than simply Amsterdam? Sure, it’s a small country and most other, major cities are easily accessible for a daytri[...]
