Europe

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[...]

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[...]

Ode to frozen yogurt

•••
"I like ice cream a whole lot. It tastes good when days are hot. On a cone, or in a dish. This would be my only wish. Vanilla, chocolate, or Rocky Road, Even with pie a la mode." Remember that poem from little Vaida Saltenfuss in My Girl?  Well, now that we in Berlin are melting in temperatures that can easily compete with summer in Marrakesh or Nairobi, [...]

Restaurants we like: Orgasmic (Barcelona)

•••
When I first passed by this place after an extensive stroll down La Rambla, it wasn't just the provocative name that caught my eye (I swear!). The half-glass, half-chalk board storefront, colorfully decorated and announcing (very) cheap prices for freshly prepared organic dishes was enough to cause my little treehugger heart to skip a beat. My friends[...]

The first Travelettes Fleamarket - in photo and video

•••
Oh how lovely was our first Travelettes fleamarket! The turn-out was amazing and most of the 20 girls who sold their old vintage in support of their holiday piggy bank were able to trade rags for riches. The ladies brought on some really high end stuff which is why I invested most of the money I made straight back into new clothes. Flamenco shoes, a skirt, 2[...]
