I thought that when I saw a photo of the duo behind 365 docobites via the brilliant Humans of Amsterdam Facebook page (which of course is influenced by the mahoosively popular Humans of New York) that was the first time I’d heard of the project.

With Debra from Humans of Amsterdam.

But a quick navigation around their website and I realised I’d seen some of their work before on Sailing HR’s Facebook …

Not many old buildings still stand in the centre of Rotterdam, a city all but flattened by the Second World War, but there are a few. What is spooky is that the ones that remained, standing tall above the rubble, were arguably the most important buildings; the post office and St Lawrence Church in the centre of the city, and over by the water, the port’s customs house and gatehouse, …

Walking into Bestival, a four-day music festival on the Isle of Wight, for the first time felt reminiscent of walking into my very first big-girl sleepover. I remember the sheer excitement of having a whole night of lax parental supervision that would be filled with eating too much ice-cream, playing truth or dare and talking to that cute boy.
It was this feeling (x 1000) that welled up inside me at the sight …

Most girls I know have a certain special item of clothing they can’t bear to travel without. A go to dress; some comfy shorts; that perfectly battered pair of trusty Converse that are just about to fall apart… Well, for Jennifer Salvage that item happens to be a little bit more unusual. You see, Jennifer travels with her wedding dress.
It all started on March 19th 2008, when Jennifer and Jeff said …

“I really admire how you can walk in heels on these streets”, I say to Isabelle while I try to catch up to her on the crumbling sidewalks of Essaouira. Isabelle is the owner of La Maison des Artistes, the riad I am staying at, and is wearing chic Chloé pumps while I am in Havaianas. She turns to me with a somewhat confused look, “Excuse me, I’m from Paris.” …

They say your friends are the family you choose and if that’s the case, I’m more than happy to take all the credit for the family I’ve built around me and in particular, the girls I’ve welcomed into my life. My female friendships have always held a special place in my heart. Good girlfriends will see us at our best and worst, will laugh and cry with us, will reserve …

Melbourne is arguably, and most rightly so, one of the top most liveable cities in the world! I lived there for nearly three years and it is definitely a place that stole my heart – I’ll always think about it with affection and hope of returning. One of the many reasons why I love it is that it is so diverse with a multitude of suburbs that would suit any …

As Caroline showed with her love letter to London, clearly the idea of being in a love with a city like you would be in love with a person is not an unknown concept. I too, have at least in my mind written love letters to or thrown plates at cities at one point or another. If you look at my track record I am not quite promiscuous, but I …

Valentines month may be nearly over but romance certainly ain’t dead in these beautiful and unique shots depicting idealized love around the globe. New York based photographer Braden Summers spent six weeks travelling the world in order to recreate the images of romantic perfection we are bombarded with constantly in mainstream media, only this time using exclusively gay couples.

Summers, who identifies as gay himself, travelled through the UK, France, India, …

The motorcycle – a symbol of freedom, adventure and youth ever since the 50s spawned those early rebels without a cause and Ted Simon hit the road to pen Jupiter’s Travels. But so often in pop culture do women seem relegated to perching prettily on the back of the bike despite the fact that all around the world I’ve witnessed ladies fearlessly manning their own machines; perhaps not in heels …
