The dog who could surf

Surfing, bodyboarding and skateboarding? No problem for surfer-dog Osso. Two years ago I had the pleasure to meet this dog and the person, who taught Osso everything- his proud owner Christiano. During my travels in Peru I heard of the small surfer town Máncora, which is situated close to the border of Equador- that seemed like the perfect getaway from my ex[...]

Travel for a good cause

Let's be honest: when we travel, we do it mostly for ourselves. We travel to get out of our daily rut, to see and experience fascinating things and places, to make new friends, eat good food or just to treat ourselves with something nice. Just imagine you could do all of these things - and contribute to charity at the same time? There's always the option [...]

On my way to India...

One more day, then finally the time has come. My first time visiting the Asian Continent - I couldn't be more excited. When I picture India, I see bright colours, full markets, spices everywhere - simply a whole new world. I basically got all those ideas from Bollywood movies, so there are a lot of clichées that have to be proven right or wrong. There is[...]

Get Smart with Country Games!

Lately, we seem to be talking a lot about various ways to satiate our desire for travel when it just isn't possible to pack our bags and leave home. Looking at travel-inspired fashion editorials and blogs, shopping online for unique world wide gifts, and planning your next trip are all high on the list.

Typographic Maps

As a graphic designer you can guess I am (at least a bit) into typography. I recently discovered an interesting mapping project, made by axis maps. They used hand-placed type to create two maps, one of Boston and one of downtown Chicago and I think they came out beautifully.
