On the road - Pt 2

•••
When Anthony and I embarked on our road trip, we left Austin pretty late, at 2 in the afternoon and were overambitious as to how much time we would need to get form A to B. Whatever time we planned on, it was always a few hours more and it sure didn't help that we were so in awe of everything we drove past. We stopped a lot at random locations so I could tak[...]

USA on the road - Pt 1

•••
On my recent road trip through the US, I took advantage of various means of transportation inlcuding planes, buses and cars. The reason why traveling by car was my favorite is because you are free to stop along the roadside as much as you like. When you see somehting, you stop or you turn around. You get out, marvle, take photos, get back in the car and hit [...]

Photos of New Orleans

•••
How was New Orleans? - I get asked from pretty much everyone I tell about my 1-month trip through 8 major American cities. There is a magic about this town rivalled by few others. New Orleans is home to some of the most laid-back people I have ever met. Example - I once waited on a streetcar for over 20 minutes. Asking a woman waiting with me how often those[...]

L.A. beach tales

•••
Los Angeles held somewhat of a surprise for me because this time I actually liked it. I had been here a couple of times before with friends and back then, I could not get into it. Maybe it was good that this time I came here on my own because that allowed me to take in the city on a more personal level and for a moment was able to imagine what it would feel [...]

Viva Las Vegas

•••
Vegas was not what I expected. In mind I had an image of sequin-dress wearing ladies with long cigarettes throwing dice while drinking whisky and flirting with men in suits. The reality of Vegas, however, were denim-shorts wearing, beer-drinking, balding tourists who come to gamble their lives away or get wasted on drinks, strong enough to put out the Norweg[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Laying back in Austin

•••
Dear Travelettes, coming to Austin I only knew two things. One - everyone loves it, and second, great people come from here. Some of my favorite Americans are Austinites including my friend Anthony who I was supposed to meet so we could go on a road trip together through half the US. When reading up on Austin in travel guides, one thing seems to always[...]

New York Soho - Cafe Habana is for you

•••
New York is full of great places to eat. The art is to find one that has the food you like, the athmosphere you appreciate and the prices you can afford.Since the selection is so big, it's fun to go around and try out different spots to find the spots that you feel are yours. That you can go to again and again, that you show friends and family and that you r[...]

In New Orleans, time stands still

•••
New Orleans had me at hello. Simply walking down the street, every other person says hello like you're their next-door neighbor. At the coffeeshop people come chatting, even when you're staring at your laptop. Pretty much everyone has a constant smile on their face and people treat each other with respect and social warmth. To make things even better, New O[...]
