How to spend 1 Day in New York as a Photographer

•••
What would you do if you had only one day to spend in New York City? Last year I had the chance to explore a bit of the United States and traveled to eight different states in one month. It's a lot of traveling, but I like grabbing opportunities whenever I can. New York City has a lot to offer and for a one-day trip, it can seem to be overwhelming. I wan[...]

Yes, it's still OK to visit Major Tourist Attractions

•••
Yes, you read the title right, and yes I'm letting you know that contrary to what most top travel blogs will say these days, it's perfectly ok to visit whatever monument or museum you've had your heart set on, no matter how photographed and popular it may be. “But everyone says to adventure off the beaten track and now you’re saying I should still make t[...]

A Local's Guide to a Perfect Day in Oslo with Siv Jakobsen

•••
No one knows a city better than its locals. We asked musician Siv Jakobsen - who just released her debut album The Nordic Mellow - to share with us her favorite places in Oslo.  Oslo is one of my favorite cities in the world. It is perhaps my favorite city, as I was born in it, and have since been living in a suburb of it. After taking a 5 year stint [...]

Travelette of the Month: Sarah Peguine from Oh So Arty

•••
There is no better way to explore a city than through local eyes. That's why our writers always try their best to find out what the coolest local hot spots are, the trendiest bars and restaurants, and where locals go to hangout. But sometimes, not even a Travelettes Guide to a new exciting city cuts it, and you want to actually connect with a local in the fl[...]

Why a Trip to explore The Hague should be on your Bucket list

•••
When you think of The Netherlands, you think of Amsterdam. Its grand canals, its cute houses, its thousands of bikes and probably its direct yet friendly-in-their-own-way locals. But what if I told you that there’s far more to the Netherlands than simply Amsterdam? Sure, it’s a small country and most other, major cities are easily accessible for a daytri[...]

10 awesome things to make your city trip a success

•••
Early fall is here, and it's the perfect time to take a city trip. The sun isn't so hot, the storms aren't so intense, and the brilliance of autumn leaves creates a perfect backdrop for walking, sightseeing, bar/restaurant hopping, and generally drinking in the atmosphere of an urban landscape. Budget airline carriers have made city trips ever more accessibl[...]

How to spend a weekend in Paris like a local

•••
I was always scared of going to Paris. I had heard so much about it. People loved it, were raving about it, were infatuated by it. But somehow, instead of making me want to go there myself, it always just put me off. What if I didn't like it? I couldn't tell anybody that... Better not risk it. Then - out of nowhere - an opportunity arose, to speak at a[...]

Skip the Metro: Paris is best explored by foot!

•••
Perhaps one of the greatest things about Paris is the metro. It’s fast and it’s reliable. It’s wonderful. That is, if you don’t mind being underground. My first two trip to Paris lasted for about five days each - an acceptable amount of time someone would spend in the city during a vacation. When I returned to the city for a third time, I wasn’t very i[...]
