Driving through Miami

•••
Miami is a total car city. Without one, you are pretty screwed (unless of course you have a hord of friends that can take you crusing.) Driving between the island of South Beach and Downtown and the other neighborhoods of Miami located on the mainland there are some pretty impressive things to see. Especially at dawn, when the sky is so blue and the air is h[...]

Miami beach impressions

•••
Dear travelettes, I am in florida. Miami, to be precise. Miami is a bit weird. And nothing as I had expected. I'm pretty sure I don't like Miami too much, because it's very touristy and overpriced. I'm missing a certain big city feel here. Howver, that said, the people I have met here are among the best I've met in a while. Miami-residents are super laid-[...]

New York: Boxing Kitten fashion

•••
Dear travelettes, the other day, my blogger-friend Susie G took me to a fashion party of the NY-based label Boxing Kitten presenting its latest collection. The clothes are vintage inspired with colorful print reminiscent of Africa. Boxing Kitten designs have recently been spotted in Rihanna's Rude Bow video, on Solange and Beyonce and many other fab pop s[...]

NYC - 5 coffeeshop favorites

•••
Something I tend to obsess about in any major American city are coffee shops. In Europe we have cafes, which are just as great, but nothing beats a lazy afternoon with a large vanilla latte and a cream cheese bagel while staring at your laptop for 2 to 3 hours and possibly getting some work done. It's a perfect place to daydream and refuel on caffeine. Wh[...]

Brunching with Anna Wintour

•••
Dear travelettes, New York is full of surprises. Just the other day I was googling good brunch spots in Manhattan and after carefully circling in my options I eventually decided to go for the Sullivan Bistro on 169 Sullivan Street in Nolita. Even though it hadn't got any ratings, its brunch menu much more suited my tastebuds than many of the Soho p[...]

NYC - visuals of a lazy saturday

•••
Dear travelettes, after spending my first few days in New York frantically trying to take in as much as possible, see as much as possible and do as much as possible I could not help but do something incredibly boring yesterday - sleep. After meeting a friend for brunch and hanging out at another friend's bar for a bit I went home and fell asleep just to w[...]

New York: I'm here

•••
Dear travelettes, for the past few weeks I have been announcing that I was going on a trip throughout the United States and finally i'm here ready and waiting for all adventures to come my way. Today is my 3rd day and - what can I say - I am aching everywhere. My feet are welcoming new blisters every day and my entire body is sore from walking as much as[...]

NYC to MONTREAL - bus? train? plane? car?

•••
Dear travelettes, this morning i woke up early and still a little tired, i stayed in bed reading in my Lonely Planet USA, feeding my exitement over my 4-week-America-trip coming up in may. A little while back I told you I was going on a road trip, but what I did not tell you was that I will also be in New York before I launch on the road trip from Austin,[...]
