Travelettes TV: Road Trip Tales from the Grand Canyon

•••
Back in the month of May, I left Berlin to embark on a roadtrip throughut the United States. After stops in New York, Miami and New Orleans, I met my good friend Anthony in Austin and together we drove up all the way to the Grand Canyon which was a magical few days. To remember that time I was filming the trip all along and have now put some of the footage i[...]

Travelettes TV presents: One night out in New York

•••
Dear travelettes, during my recent trip through the United States I filmed everything and everyone and I've been working on editing a mini series of short films, each episode located in a different city. The first stop on my US itinerary was New York City, which is why there series starts here. Enjoy.

My day at the Grand Canyon

•••
Dear Travelettes, during my recent trip through the United States, me and my buddy Anthony had one very particular destination in mind, which, for different reasons was close to our hearts. While I had been craving a visit to the Grand Canyon ever since I had named my other blog Glamcanyon, Anthony had a special mission to fulfil and he made me his sid[...]

Outdoor Cinemas in Berlin, Paris, London and New York

•••
Open air cinemas are a wonderful invention. Sitting underneath the stars in a folding chair with your buddy/boyfriend/cousin/mom and dad/neighbor watching a movie you've always wanted to watch while sipping on a cool beer is a great way to spend your summer nights. My first time in an open air cinema was in Paris, where they show free movies at different [...]

Chatting to the Six Six Sick girls about New York City

•••
I first met the six six sick girls about 4 years ago when I lived in New York for a while. Back then, these (then) 3 fine ladies ran one of NYC's best clubnights called Six Six Sick, at a place called Happy Ending, ever Tuesday. I loved them right away because each week they designed their own outfits and treated all their guests as friends. These days, the[...]

Small City Love: Missoula, Montana

•••
When we travel to cities, we often opt for larger, better known destinations.  It's understandable to do this because of the time that goes into travel, language barriers, and not being sure if we'll be able to successfully find things to occupy ourselves with, but one of my favorite parts about staying in a country for a longer period of time is getting to [...]

Nomad tales - leaving the road, finding a home

•••
My love for travel always involves some serious complications because, for the most part, I don't have a "home base". This means constantly moving from place to place with a a roughly outlined plan and a frustrating amount of baggage... so maybe that makes me a nomad. Have you ever felt this way? If so then you've probably experienced some unexpected trials [...]

New York, I love you (but you're bringing me down)

•••
New York and I have been enjoying a love/hate relationship ever since I first set foot in this town at the tender age of 18, equipped with a homemade ID stating that I was 22 and a grand appetite to discover all things Americana. Before moving there in summer 2006, ending my world trip that had just taken me through 25 countries and 5 continents, I had on[...]

Kids in New York

•••
In every country and every city I travel to, I observe how kids are treated by their parents, how they live and how they act. Understanding children is to understand adults, as an adult is nothing else but the product of the way the external world impacts on him as a child growing up. But the idea is not to go too scientific on you (I hold an MSc in developm[...]
