Trof - the best hangout in Manchester

•••
Anyone who's ever been a university student will be familiar with those mornings after long and eventful nights out: all you want to do is  crawl back under the sheets, but both the sunlight beaming through cracks in the curtain and the heap of books at the foot of your bed, waiting to be read, prevent you from doing so. Get up and out of bed and an incredib[...]

My powder snow paradise

•••
Dear travelettes, Ever since I moved from Norway to Berlin, I've found the winter a little bit more boring and a little harder to deal with, mainly due to the lack of mountains. When the leaves start falling off the trees is when I start daydreaming about snowboarding and cross-country skiing in my native winter wonderland. Ever since I was a little girl,[...]

Paris Nostalgia - Part II

•••
The thing about Paris is that it never gets old. Or older. Or younger. Somehow, in Paris time stands still. That's part of what makes it so special. The streets are filled with life, food and smells and on every corner there is a photo waiting to be taken. When you go to Paris and really see it, you'll know why it's called the city of love. And the beauty of[...]

Paris Nostalgia - Part I

•••
Visiting Paris is always a slice of magic. I once lived in here for 3 years and I still get enchanted by the pittoresque streets, the little cafes and the charms of French people. After an almost 2 year-absence I went back last week for Paris Fashion Week. However, I ended up spending next to no time at shows but wandered the streets of the French capital[...]

Visiting Versailles in the fall

•••
As one of the largest and beautiful palaces in the world Le château de Versailles should (hopefully) be high on the list of places to visit when you are in Paris. The royal reign at Versailles ended in the late 1700's around the time when the French were in the mood for choping off some heads and thus decapitated their King and Queen (Louis XVI and Ma[...]

On getting a tattoo ... in Prague

•••
Cut back to last August. I’ve just vacated my apartment, given away or packed up all of my possessions, broke up with my boyfriend, and flown to Prague to begin what would become a 9 month stint abroad. The reality of things is that I was heartsick, homesick, and feeling existentially confused about why the hell I was doing this whole thing anyway. I phoned [...]

The most beautiful beach in the world

•••
If I were to ask you to name the most beautiful beach in the world what would you say? Somewhere exotic in Thailand, a secluded island in the Caribbean, or maybe you’re tempted by the crystal clear waters of Mexico? Perhaps a beach in the south of France would not be a natural choice but I recently found somewhere I consider to be amongst the most beautiful [...]

How to travel Norway on a budget

•••
My dear motherland, Norway, is known as one of the world’s most expensive countries, but also one of the most beautiful (and yes, I am very objective in this case). When trying to sweet-talk Norway to people, the first thing I get asked about is if it’s true that a beer cost 10 euros and how one can afford to travel there. During my three years of studying i[...]

Aperitivo: an Italian institution

•••
If you've been to Italy, you'll be well familiar with a culinary phenomenon I have never encountered in any other country: Aperitivo. Aperitivo started to become trendy in fashionable Milan and was quickly picked up by image-councious bars and restaurants in Rome and other Italian cities. Every night, usually from around 6 to 9pm, every self-respec[...]

Topfen, a Recipe from the Austrian Alps

•••
This winter as I braved the elements across Europe, I settled for just under a month at a dairy farm a little ways out of Salzburg in Austria. I woke up every morning at 5am to help milk to 30 or so cows, spent the day doing tasks around the house, playing with my hosts’ son, taking small walks in attempts to glimpse the Alps through the fog, and desperately[...]
