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[...]

Restaurants we like: Toca Rouge (Berlin)

Whether you come to Berlin on holiday or if you live here, there are some great restaurants to be discovered in this city with international Cuisine, some of which we would like to introduce to you.

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[...]

Inspiring women who travel - Margaret Moth

•••
I came across Margaret Moth while looking for outstanding photojournalists. Unfortunately the news of her existance came to me accompanied with the news of her recent death in March 2010. As I was very touched by this woman's story, I want to share it with those among you who might be unfamiliar with her. "Life is like tennis. You have no choice over how [...]

Portuguese temptations: Cakes in Lisbon

•••
Dear Travelettes, Let me make a confession: Since I arrived in Lisbon I’ve eaten a cake, or some kind of traditional sweet, every day. That is more than 100 cakes the last few months, something that should make me quite a cake-expert (although it’s not the best preparation for the bikini season). When that is said, I read somewhere if you leave Portugal w[...]

Austin: vintage shopping guide

•••
Dear Travelettes, I love vintage and it is something I look for in every city I go to. While most cities have a few vintage stores that might not even be too bad, it only happens relatively rarely that a place boasts a whole range of amazing vintage shopping options. One of those places is Austin, Texas. There aresome real gems over here with many origina[...]

Eating on the road

•••
Dear Travelettes, I have made it a point to avoid all Mc Donald's, Starbucks or other kinds of fast food chains while on the road. There are few better ways to experience a foreign country or culture than indulging in the local cuisine - and of course getting to know the locals; but then again, what better way to bond than over a good meal or a round of d[...]

Austin: treating your sweet-tooth

•••
Dear Travelettes, for the past few months I have been trying hard to cut down on carbs, work out and eat lots of veggies and protein. Pretty much all that went to hell once I came to Austin because there is some very awesome notsogoodforyou food to be had here. On South Congress Avenue there is a a whole range of goodie goodie stands and shops with almost[...]

Beachtime is now neon

•••
Dear Travelettes, before going to Miami I was obsessed with the idea of spending as much time as possible on the beach and obviously, buying cute beach outfits was imperative. On the lookout for a light beach dress I went to H&M and found IT. A bright neon orange wide dress, knee-length with 2 large pockets. With my pale skin in mind I stepped to the [...]
