Austin: treating your sweet-tooth

•••
Dear Travelettes, for the past few months I have been trying hard to cut down on carbs, work out and eat lots of veggies and protein. Pretty much all that went to hell once I came to Austin because there is some very awesome notsogoodforyou food to be had here. On South Congress Avenue there is a a whole range of goodie goodie stands and shops with almost[...]

New York Soho - Cafe Habana is for you

•••
New York is full of great places to eat. The art is to find one that has the food you like, the athmosphere you appreciate and the prices you can afford.Since the selection is so big, it's fun to go around and try out different spots to find the spots that you feel are yours. That you can go to again and again, that you show friends and family and that you r[...]

Brunching with Anna Wintour

•••
Dear travelettes, New York is full of surprises. Just the other day I was googling good brunch spots in Manhattan and after carefully circling in my options I eventually decided to go for the Sullivan Bistro on 169 Sullivan Street in Nolita. Even though it hadn't got any ratings, its brunch menu much more suited my tastebuds than many of the Soho p[...]

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[...]

Lisbon: Sunday brunch

•••
Eat breakfast like a king queen, lunch like a prince princess, and dinner like a pauper it is said. Even though the brunch is left out, it's my favourite meal – especially together with good friends or a magazine, sun and of course sunglasses to cover up the hangover from last night and to stare at people without getting noticed.. I’ve already found two g[...]

Cooking with Anna-Zoe - Today: Excuse my french cuisine

•••
Travelette Zoe is currently chasing fictional white rabbits around the globe and when she is not on a plane or figuring out which way is Wonderland she is recording videos. But not just any videos -she launched her own cooking show. The fact that Zoe knows as much about cooking as Berlusconi knows about fidelity does not hinder her from producing a hilar[...]

The Great American Road Trip: ALABAMA!

•••
Let me start by saying that, for those who are unfamiliar, in the States, the "deep south" consists of Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Antebellum homes, mosquitoes galore, southern cuisine and southern comfort (the drink and the feeling) are all included in the "deep south" package. If you're wondering why Florida is not considered t[...]

Bangkok: Take me home, Khao San Road

•••
One night in Bangkok Bangkok can be an awful lot of fun. Tons of young people all ready to party their pants off. In my case I made a fun German friend - Simone - on the bus from the airport and together with Dutch fella Nick the 3 of us headed out for a night of exessive drinking, dancing, and people-meeting. To give you hints of what a night out on Khao[...]

Kerala: death by chocolate and mosquitos

•••
Today was meant to be totally relaxing. My only plan was not to have any plans, apart from maybe trying the much-raved about cake called death of chocolate in my new favorite Kerala hangout - an adorably decorated cafe/sanctuary called Teapot. Since in India things almost always contrary to what you hoped it was no different today. At 4am I realised m[...]
