Traveling veggie on a budget: dining with the Hare Krishna

•••
If you’re from a bigger city, you might have noticed a group of people chanting “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna” dressed in some kind of peach colored Indian looking outfit your local park. I haven’t had a deeper look into their ideology, but they’re extremely friendly and I’m definitely into their cuisine. As a vegetarian, sometimes it can be a bit chall[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Homemade Espresso on the Go!

•••
Hey ladies, I have to confess I have a huge coffee addiction. And as any others with similar afflictions know, traveling can cause an upset to our caffeination routines. Before I left for Europe I was rather used to soy lattes or watery American drip coffee. Living in Budapest without a coffeemaker, I adjusted to instant coffee from a jar. In Bosnia and C[...]

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[...]

Food Blogs from Italy

•••
Dear Travelettes, Preparing for an upcoming trip usually means a lot of reading. Be it in guidebooks, articles, blogs, forums - going into your trip well prepared much increases your chances of seeing all the good stuff and not missing out on stuff the brochure from your hotel doesn't mention. And so it is that for my trip to Italy in 4 weeks I've begu[...]

They feature Oriental, African, American or Eastern European fare, have exotic interior, great athmosphere and, very important, reasonable prices. A meal and a g[...]

3 Great Art Bars in Budapest

•••
I arrived in Budapest for my semester abroad in the beginning of September. Unfortunately the glorious sunny days didn’t last for very long, and soon we found ourselves facing rain (and eventually snow) and looking for ways to do our socializing indoors. Budapest has fantastic night life, but while a crazy night out dancing is great fun, it’s not the best[...]
