Road Trip through Spain part 1: Sitges

•••
Dear Travelettes, I recently discovered that there are two kinds of people to travel with. There’s the über-organized traveller that plans, books and arranges everything in advance, never fails to read the map correctly and leads you to super-secret locations that even the locals don’t know. And then there are the people who will always miss their flight,[...]

Live to eat - food tastes better in Italy

•••
Vivere per mangiare - live to eat, is a famous Italian saying which is a pretty important, if not the most important, aspect of Italian lifestyle. When I think of Italy I first think of the amazing food and, especially once I had actually visited this gorgeous country, the memory of creamy gelato, flavorful pizza and delicious pasta has forever left its mark[...]

Palermo dreaming

•••
Sicily is great. And I'm not just saying that because so far no one tried to steal anything from me. I found a great hostel where I've been meeting tons of nice people (Casa di Amici, more on that soon), have taken day trips to stunning beach towns, visited catacombs and of course had an overload of the local specialities which happen to be all sweet. Cannol[...]

Skipping town: Barcelona

•••
There are few negative aspects to summer in Berlin;  yet one that definitely can’t be ignored is the amount of tourists swarming the city, taking over the streets, parks, restaurants, clubs and even my favourite street corner café. With friends on holidays and a grim-looking weather forecast for the upcoming week, I was easily convinced to join my friends fo[...]

A love for Italy

•••
Italia. Nothing to say about Italia that is not dipped in admiration, longing and pure love. Italy is the one country I can never get enough of. A place where I never get a feeling of "ok that was nice, and now i want to go back home". I think it's safe to say that one day I will purchase a beautiful apartment somewhere in Naples where I will spent those mon[...]

A Slovenian Getaway

•••
I had an interesting time visiting in Slovenia. Fresh from a few weeks in Italy and on my way to visit my friend in Austria, I decided to stop for a few days in this tiny former Yugoslav nation. Of course I had to visit the capital, Ljubljana and take a bit of a walk uphill to the castle. The castle is of medieval origin, but has been renovated over time [...]

Paris: Café Couture

•••
While having a monthly visit on my favourite DIY blog "Oustapop" I came across this great concept in Paris. In March 2010 Martena Duss and Sissi Holleis opened the fashion version of the internet café, the "café couture" called "Sweat Shop". They offer sewing machines to rent for 6€ an hour, professional advice and help included. Next to coffee and cake they[...]

Europe: Perfect for first time solo-travellers!

•••
Looking for romance? Culture? Fun? Good food and music? Diverse landscapes and plenty of historic sights? And on top of that you want to be safe while travelling? Then Europe is the place to be! Safety Europe is - despite a few places - a very safe continent. Political stable, no war, less religious beliefs that can make travelling (especially for wome[...]

Outdoor Cinemas in Berlin, Paris, London and New York

•••
Open air cinemas are a wonderful invention. Sitting underneath the stars in a folding chair with your buddy/boyfriend/cousin/mom and dad/neighbor watching a movie you've always wanted to watch while sipping on a cool beer is a great way to spend your summer nights. My first time in an open air cinema was in Paris, where they show free movies at different [...]

Lisbon, my city of “saudades” or nostalgic longing

•••
The Portuguese have their own word for expressing the feeling of nostalgic longing for someone or something that one adores and now is lost. They call it “saudades”. This is the feeling that fills me sometimes when I think about places I adore, people I love and experiences I never know if I will see or feel again. New friends, a boyfriend or a crush, new[...]
