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[...]

ROAD TRIP: The perfect soundtrack

•••
I love my car. I love being out on the road, no matter for how long. You and I know how important it is to have the right play-list of songs for the ride. Whether you're singing along to your favourite tune with your friends on the backseat or just enjoying the ride alone, the right music makes every trip easy and fun. So a good soundtrack is a must. Obvious[...]

Biking in the city: this is how I roll

•••
I always found going by bike one of the best ways to discover a city, next to shopping of course.. I love biking because it is environmentally friendly, healthy (read: gives you buns of steel), and it is a great way to get to know a new city without having to smell sweaty armpits on the subway! Several cities have great possibilities to rent bikes (or at [...]
