Travelettes recommend - summer goals

•••
Thanks to student flair, we recently came across a wonderful tumblr called summer goals, posting pictures of the things we should aim to do this summer. Swimming in an ocean, lounging by the lake, picknicking in a field, eating rasberry ice-cream, watching the sunset from a rooftop with all your friends, going on a road trip, camping out in the woods - you g[...]

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[...]

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. 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[...]

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 [...]

Through the eyes of... Carolin Weinkopf

•••

Originally she studied journalism and political sciences, but she currently works exclusively as a photographer. She runs a blog and a website. How is traveling part of your life? My [...]
