Five reasons to go to Sheffield

•••
Ask anyone in England what the name "Sheffield" brings to mind and the most likely answer is "stainless steel." Boring, shiny, stainless steel; simply because it was developed there. However, having lived in Sheffield for nearly two years now, I can vouch that there is definitely more to it than that. Here are five reasons why you should go to Sheffield (and[...]

5 Reasons to go to... Burning Man

•••
I’m a self-admitted festival hussie.  My parents were huge hippies and I grew up going to lots of festivals and giant outdoor concerts, and as an adult I’ve been to and worked at my fair share.  But no other week has blown my mind and changed me as much as going to Burning Man. playa hearts In San Francisco I take it for granted everyone knows about it; th[...]

The Northern Lights: The ultimate light show

•••
When I was young, one of the top things on my list of 'Things to do before I die' was to see the Northern Lights. I had heard of its beauty, seen its gorgeous colours on postcards, witnessed snapshots in documentaries but never really followed through on my aim in life, which I was so adamant about when I was twelve. I always thought they were a rare [...]

Highfield Festival 2011

•••
I love open air festivals, but I love them small. After attending the medium-sized Dockville Festival two years in a row, I thought I knew that bigger festivals weren't for me. But then a friend convinced me to go to Highfield this year, which is one of the biggest indie rock music festivals in Germany. I was a little uneasy about attending an event with 25.[...]

Sunshine seems to be quite rare this summer. This is why we should enjoy every sunny day and make the best out of it. And what makes a day be better than relaxing at the beach or getting involved in some outdoor activities such as skating, surfing or listening to some good music? Only one hour away from London you can find the cosy town of Brighton, which o[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Festivals

•••
Gone are the days when music festivals were only about pot-bellied heavy metal fans and men who didn't shower for three days in a row. I've drunk my share of 10am-beers whilst sat in a fold-up camping chair on a muddy field (and thoroughly enjoyed it, too!)... but especially in recent years, festival culture has become a lot more diverse and than that.

Celebrating Queen's Day

•••
Only one more month to go and the Dutch population will dress up in orange to celebrate 'Koninginnedag' (Queen's day), the national holiday to dedicate the birthday of the Queen of the Netherlands. But instead of a classical ceremony, the whole nation is having a huge party and more than million people will come to Amsterdam to become part of this unique eve[...]

Music and beach life - Super Rock Super Bock Festival

•••
As the summer is getting closer, so is the festival period. With so many great festival around Europe, festival passes and plane tickets must be booked soon. This is how my summer started out last year: Take a few of my favorite bands, a beautiful beach, a handful of good friends and cold beer - and you have the perfect festival experience. A weekend of musi[...]

Sonic Iceland

•••
It all started on a cold and miserable winter morning in 2009 in Cologne, Germany. Marcel is meeting Kai, his former flatmate who wants to go on a very special trip with him. A few months later, in summer 2010, they are travelling to Iceland. With the help of Icelandic partners and donations from all over the world they were able to realise their idea of a d[...]
