Hiking in Norway

•••
Ever since I moved away from Norway I find there is something magical about returning to the fjords and the mountains. After spending time in the ”concrete jungle” or in small green spots in the city it is liberating to go walking for hours and get some fresh mountain-air. Sometimes you can also find a nice spot to take a (freezing) bath. When I go back t[...]

Berlin - Open-mic night at Madame Claude

•••
Dear travelettes, living in Berlin a lot of people always email me asking where they should go out in Berlin. I've already introduced my favorite club HBC a couple months ago. It's time to tell you about my new favorite bar - Madame Claude. This cosy Kreuzberg hangout that is owned by a bunch of French people has great cocktails, cute bartenders and furni[...]

From New York to San Francisco - My USA trip itinerary

•••
Dear travelettes, I am stoked, exhilerated, breathless with exitement for my upcoming trip through the United States. Even though I've spent a little over 2 years in that country, I still feel like I barely even know it and that the world existing between San Francisco and New York (the 2 cities I spent those 2 years in) holds a lot for me to discover. [...]

Mini-break by bike: Lisbon - the Alentejo coast

•••
What do you do when you have about 30 euros (and a week until you get your next salary), 3 days off and a strong urge to travel? I was complaining to a good friend about this, and got this e-mail back: be ready at 7AM tomorrow, have about 10 euros ready, your bicycle and two changes of clothes. The morning after we were ready for 3 days of pedaling in Por[...]

Recyclart: a little bit of 'underground' in Brussels

•••
Before visiting Brussels last summer, I innocently reduced the small nation of Belgium to a row of clichées, namely french fries (oh, the irony...), exquisite chocolates and comic books. I was more than happy to revise my opinion, especially since I've disliked Tintin, Lucky Luke and their compatriots for as long as I can remember.Truth be told: Brussels has[...]

The 101 on Open-Air Festivals

•••
Coachella. Glastonbury. Roskilde. Summerjam. The list of open-air music festivals is seemingly endless, and with a great variety of opportunities comes the difficulty of choosing one that meets all expectations in terms of music genre, size, location and personal budget. Once you’ve made your pick and rounded up a group of friends to come along for a week[...]

Must-Do's in Istanbul

•••
The first impression you get when going to Istanbul is the view of the city from above. I arrived early in the morning, the sun was about to rise and I was happy to insist on my window seat for what I saw was simply A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!! Located between both the Black and the Mediterranean Sea, the lights of Istanbul lingered around the Bosporus reminding me of [...]

Budapest on a Budget: Accommodation

•••
Hungary’s capital city is known for many things: classic architecture, abundant Turkish baths, pornography, cool night life, and sweet sweet prices. While I studied abroad in Budapest, I paid about $150 per month for my own room with a beautiful loft in a shared flat with a huge kitchen and bathroom. But okay I get it, not everyone is living in Budapest and [...]

Nina's to do list for London

•••
As I told you before I am going to a London trip with a friend (her name is Vivien) and I did a to do list to make use of every minute we have. Along with some spots Vivien wants to check out, this is what I came up with: SHOPPING: Oxford Street (Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Miss Selfridges, All Saints, Primark, New Look) Vintage at Beyond Retro ([...]

The Road Trip Survey

•••
Dear travelettes, About a week ago I announced to you guys that I would be going on a road trip through half of the Unites States in about 6 weeks. This has been a long-time dream I have so I want to plan and prepare as much as possible. For this I need your help. I would love to find out about your experiences on road trips, so I, and everyone else inter[...]
