Bangkok: an ode to the Hareem Pants

•••
The whole Khao San Road area seems to require a certain uniform to enter it: hareem pants, parachute pants, drop-crotched pants- call them what you like, but if you ain't wearing them, you soon get seduced by the sheer scale of availability in the billions of stalls. You're likely to find yourself convincing youself that they're exactly what you need in y[...]

Vika - the metropolitan explorer

•••
It feels weird being back in Barcelona after not beeing here for over 2 years. But once I had come to grips with how much I had missed this city, I also started realizing, once again, how travelling really is the best way to meet interesting people - and in Barcelona, that's a given. At the hostel I stayed at, I shared a room with Viktoriya, 26 from Moscow, [...]

Colombia: Getting down and dirty at Cartagena Festival

•••
The Colombians love their rumba (party) . They do it all the time, but a very special occasion happened to be last week, when they celebrated the day of their Independence from Spain in Cartagena. At 40 degrees and sweating like at an Istanbul Hamam, everyone was dancing in the streets. Don't wonder about the slightly mean-looking gangs, covered in di[...]

Barcelona: ¡Vamos a Elsa Bar!

•••
Among travelers, Barcelona is one of Europe's hot spots. As I spent 6 months living there, I can tell you the following: you will definetely have some nights you will never forget. To start off one of these infamous nights, put on your heels and take the Metro to the heart of Barcelonas beautiful district "Gracia". After having had some delicious Tapas at Pl[...]

London: a different kind of souvenir

•••
London has a lot of cool shit to offer. Anything from a huge selection of great vintage stores to some of the best club nights in Europe, there are lots of reasons to keep coming back to the English capitol. This precisely is why, after having lived in London for 18 months (before moving to Berlin in may this year) i am still exited to return every time. [...]

The Great American Road Trip: ALABAMA!

•••
Let me start by saying that, for those who are unfamiliar, in the States, the "deep south" consists of Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Antebellum homes, mosquitoes galore, southern cuisine and southern comfort (the drink and the feeling) are all included in the "deep south" package. If you're wondering why Florida is not considered t[...]

The Great American Road Trip: from Alabama to Illinois

•••
In the last post I attempted to give some ideas on how to make a clean break for a new start or long trip, and left at our departure: me and two friends, stuffed into a Jeep on the way to Alabama from Illinois. The first thing I would suggest on a long road trip would be to, if at all possible, switch up drivers from time to time. Whoever ended up shoved in [...]

World trip journal - flashbacks of a trip around the world.

•••
When in September 2005 I embarked on a trip around the world I left with great plans and ambitions. To let all my friends at home know how I was getting on and about all the stuff that happened to me along the way I would email them - first regularly, then more and more scarcely. I will publish those emails here for you guys to hear my story. Maybe it'll ins[...]

Portraits from along the way: Lolo in Buenos Aires

•••
I remember very little about Lolo. It was the early in the year of 2006 and I had just arrived in Buenos Aires planning to stay there for a couple of months. Since I didnt know anyone there I contacted a few random people via myspace to find out what's happening in BA. Lolo was nice enough to invite me over for a BBQ with her and her friends one afternoon an[...]

The great American road trip: First things first

•••
As i'm sure you're aware, travel prep can be pretty  stressful, especially when you have no clue how long you'll be on the road for. Weeks? Months? The rest of your twenties? This is when, thinking about my trip, I began to realize it is not vacation: it is life. So after careful research and consideration my master plan is Not to have a master plan. Genius,[...]
