Hotels we love: Villa Sorgenfrei & a weekend in Dresden

•••
In Germany, the city of Dresden has become the centre of political debates in recent years, take the refugee crisis, the nation's and Europe's response to it and growing right-wing extremism (like the weekly PEGIDA demonstrations).

The Joys of Travel Sketching

•••
Sitting beside a dilapidated monastery, built over a brook, I soaked in the atmosphere. I could feel the rustling of trees, chirping of birds, fragrance of pine trees, chatter of trekkers on the return, and the rhythmic music from water-propelled prayer wheels.

It can be joyous to go back and read what my 17-year-old self felt about being hit by a blanket of heat when arriving in Delhi. Or about how in my first week in Moscow I sat next to a Cossack on a Metro train who was wearing about 20 medals and smiling cheekily. Or a[...]

Our 6 favorite books this spring

•••
Spring in Berlin is currently taking a serious break, hence I've stocked up on books before summer will swallow me completely. The selection I've piled up is surprisingly deep and perhaps even dark, but every book covers an extremely important issue that I think deserves some attention and wine-fuelled discussions with friends. When I've finished every book,[...]
