Upcoming Snowboard Festivals in Europe

•••
It is getting colder and colder and thoughts are drifting away from warm summer days to freezing snow days. You're stuck between sommer and winter fun times and all you can see is rain, rain and more rain. Snowboard season may not have started yet- but why not get into the vibes for it already by visiting some of the upcoming snowboard festivals, which will [...]

Introducing Nuit Blanche 2010

•••
Ladies, having trouble sleeping recently? Don’t worry, I have found the solution to your sleeping woes, well at least a fun way to spend hours of insomnia instead of staring at the ceiling counting your imaginary Jimmy Choo shoes. Nuit Blanche (which literally means “sleepless night” or “white night” in French) is a huge cultural event that helps people r[...]

Bands, boys and beer: Hurricane Festival 2010

•••
Dear travelettes, A while ago I shared my knowledge and experience on open-air music festivals with you. Just last weekend, I was able to put my tips and tricks to the test as a group of friends and I attended the Hurricane Festival in northern Germany. Since it was our third time around, we were much less worried about packing and planning, instead spend[...]

Santo António: When Lisbon turns upside down

•••
When I first saw the decorations for Santo António, one of Lisbon's national holidays, my first reaction was that it looks like a German Christmas market, the whole city is filled with lights, decorations and food stands.

Colombia: Getting down and dirty at Cartagena Festival

•••
The Colombians love their rumba (party) . They do it all the time, but a very special occasion happened to be last week, when they celebrated the day of their Independence from Spain in Cartagena. At 40 degrees and sweating like at an Istanbul Hamam, everyone was dancing in the streets. Don't wonder about the slightly mean-looking gangs, covered in di[...]

Ko phan gan - half moon party

•••
You've probably heard of Ko phan gan and you've almost definitely heard of full-moon parties before. Arriving on Ko samui I had missed the last ferry to Ko tao and so decided to spend one night on Ko phan gan. As it turned out the bi-monthly half moon party was happening that night so together with a few others I went to check it out. Not the classiest of p[...]
