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[...]

The Pale Blue Door - Dinner in a Traveling Wonderland

•••
About a week ago, I got an exited email from a friend in London telling me about something called the Pale Blue Door. A type of supper club that travels around the globe always building a magic space made of old wood and things they find or they are given to then open their pale blue door to their guests for just 12 nights during the course of 3 weeks. 3 inc[...]

Bonjour Travelettes, as I am planning a road trip to Paris I recently collected some websites and information about "the city of love" I'd like to share with you this week.

Road Trip through Spain part 2: Murcia y La Manga

•••
Day 2 of our spontaneous and utterly chaotic road trip through Spain. After spending some time in Barcelona and recuperating from the nighttime madness there via a lovely beach day in Sitges, my friends and I hit the road and drove all the way to Murcia, which is located in the southwest of Spain. It's very likely that none or very few of you will hav[...]

Sundays at Mauerpark - a Berlin institution

•••
When you come to Berlin, there are a few things you should do. Party at Berghain and Bar 25, eat a currywurst, go shopping in Mitte and if you're here during a Sunday you definitely must not miss Mauerpark on Sundays. What started out as a pretty rad and large fleamarket, has slowly turned into the most important social event of the week. Unpretentious and e[...]

Mojito lovin'

•••
Mojitos are good. And I already told you about my personal favourite Mojito bar in Barcelona. But: I recently came across a very cool tumblr blog which judges Mojitos all around that wonderful city. Mojitos en Barcelona contuinously adds more and more bars and their Mojitos, including a five star rating system, the price and address. Salut! If you[...]

Best of England - from Brighton to Liverpool

•••
Travellers visiting the UK for the first time normally follow a set route; a few days in London, a quick visit to the colleges in Oxford or Cambridge, a detour to Bath to see the Roman Bath’s and Stonehenge. Then it’s a straight journey north via York to Edinburgh. And although all of these cities are great places to hang out for a few days, there are cities[...]

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[...]
