Hitra, Norway - no country for old men

•••
Have you ever felt the need of travelling to Goa or Bali to get that one piece of experience that changes your life? What if I told you that a tiny island in Norway can possibly inspire you to as much or maybe more than those exotic destinations. The island of Hitra was probably the most awe-inspiring and romantic place I have ever been to. On the sec[...]

Hel-Looks Weekend in Helsinki

•••
The Finnish are lovely people. They're incredibly sweet, always friendly and humble. Maybe even a bit too humble, which might be the reason why it had not come to my attention just how incredible Finland is! This past weekend, I was invited by Liisa and Sampo from Hel-Looks to give a short talk at the Hel-Looks Weekend, which happened for the first time a[...]

Berlin's urban legend - Spreepark

The Travelettes have been writing together for quite some time and during an evening at our Berlin-based Travelettes office we figured it was about time that we went on a small excursion together. When Yvonne from Just Travelous revealed that the abandoned entertainment park Spreepark would be opened for the public this weekend, it was an opportunity we coul[...]

A Must Do In Oslo: The Sunday Market

•••
Last week I went to Norway to visit friends and family, and decided that this time I was going to do some touristy stuff as well. One of the main things on my to-do-list when I visit a city is to go to thrift stores and flea markets, and Oslo was no exception. Instead of the standard souvenirs I love to find unique local, possibly weird and cheap treasures. [...]

Bavaria, the beautiful - part II

•••
Last week I got an emergency call from my dear little brother: "Nina, I got a spot at Bamberg University, I need to go there for enrollment and to find a flat next weekend. Wanna join?" Of course I would (Travelette as I am...)! So two days later I found myself on my way to Bavaria. Since I have been there only as a child I always had the typical clich[...]

Where time stands still: the Candy Museum in Morelia

•••
During my trip around Mexico I've come across a lot of different places, people and situations but none has left quite as deep an impression on me than the Candy Museum (Museo del dulce) in Morelia. I was just strolling down the street when suddenly I noticed a shop that was quite unlike all the others. Two women dressed in period gowns were tending the c[...]

Top 10 neighbourhood bars in Rio de Janeiro

•••
Dear Travelettes, Ever so often I come across something on the internet that immediately sparks my desire to escape everyday life and travel far, far away. This morning, while I was having coffee and reading the online papers, the headline "Top 10 neighbourhood bars in Rio" caught my eye. I've never been to Brazil, and I was sure that the next time my tra[...]
