Wanderlust

Road trip!!!

•••
Dear Travelettes, the other day, as I was chatting with my homeboy Anthony over in Austin, Texas a subject came up that has long been on top of my list-of-things-to-do-before-i-die-or-get-married. For dramatic effect I will recreate the conversation. Anthony: Dude, I have girl trouble, I might need some advice on this. Katja: Dump her, Anthony, she is[...]

One night in Athens

•••
Dear Travelettes, A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to a weekend getaway in Athens, Greece. Here, I met up with German expat Anna who showed me around town in my quest for drinking, dancing and greek gods hotties. One night i took my camera along and filmed a few impressions of Athens nightlife - ladies: welcome to Travelettes TV!

SPAIN: San Sebastián - Pirate bay and surferboys

•••
During my 6 months stay in Barcelona, I found myself sitting on a plane one day, on my way to Bilbao at 6 o'clock in the morning. Our final destination would be San Sebastian, though. Our plan was to spend most of the time in "Donostia" (thats how the bask call San Sebastian) and only go to Bilbao for its Guggenheim. The moment I put my feet on Bask soil for[...]

BUDAPEST: A must see, hear, taste, feel.

•••
This is how happy I was the entire time I was there. Seriously. Let me make this very clear. When I arrived in Budapest I learned that not only did I know negative 3% about the city itself, but I knew negative 100% how to properly pronounce the name. If you can do it without sounding like a pretentious non-Hungarian, by all means begin NOW. The correct pro[...]

New year, new travels, less time than ever

•••
Dear travelettes, this is your captain speaking. This website is still so young and already it's totally got on the backburner of things with me working on a ton of new projects. Some in print, some online. This weekend I'll direct my first music video and in 2 weeks is the launch of my new club night. Sounds busy? IT IS! The good news is that I'm traveli[...]

London: Chess boxing and Hula-hoop burlesque

•••
Last weekend I went to London for the first time in ten years, with the goal to reunite with some of my best friends from Norway, party like it was 1999 and work on my British accent. Despite my modest expectations I was pleasantly surprised to get introduced to two previously unknown sports: Chess boxing and Hula-hoop burlesque. When trying to imagine wh[...]

Mexico - La Manzanillera: My personal beach paradise

•••
Earlier in the year I spent a month in Mexico, and loved it! One of my favorite spots on the whole trip was La Manzanillera on the Michoacan coast, a tiny beach in an area surrounded by some great surf spots. We stayed at a small camping site where we enjoyed fresh quesedillas before or after letting the sun shine on our bellies as we lounged around in hammo[...]

The best club in Berlin (and it's not Berghain)

•••
Before moving to Berlin for good I came here every once in a while, mostly to see friends and party like there's no tomorrow enjoy the occasional night out. On New Years Eve  2009 and with absolutely no expections a few friends and I went to a pretty new Club called .HBC. Right then, just one hour into the new year I stepped into what would become my new fav[...]

Bangkok: To Khao San Road, and step on it!

•••
I knew it would happen, it was inevitable. As I had mentioned before, I definitely hadn't faced the reality of the extent of my trip and it all just seemed like a dream that would never be fully undertaken... until I peeped out the plane window and was faced with an alien Thai landscape. Then it hit me: the inevitable fear. Cue a mini stroke with the cold ha[...]
