Top 5 Things To Do In Berlin (Besides Beer, Sausage And Techno)

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Deterred from visiting the German capital because you think it’s just for those who like beer, sausages and techno?

Top 6 Hipster Neighborhoods Around The World

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Once an evasive creature contained to their natural habitats in Williamsburg, Portland and Austin, hipster culture is now globally ubiquitous. Blame it on cultural imperialism, the undeniable twee delight of appliqué birds, or the sheer convenience of ironic facial hair, just know this: The hipster has reached these international cities, and will no doubt continue to penetrate the far-flung […]

Top 5 Requirements For A Nude Beach

Thursday, December 29, 2011

If there’s one thing in this world that’s true, it’s this: Germans love getting naked. So much so, apparently, Florida believes marketing its beaches directly to this supposed demographic of buttock-bearing Europeans will boost the state’s tourism during slower months.

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Any city can be difficult to navigate or to really get a feel for it. It’s always nice to meet or know locals so that they can take you on a tour of a different nature. Locals are able to see the small things — the trees in the forest — which keep the city […]

Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Countries For 2010: And The Winner Is . . .

Friday, November 6, 2009

Lonely Planet’s doling out accolades to these ten countries as being very topping, with El Salvador being the toppingist of them all. Okay, they don’t really elaborate as to what this list mean, other than being the “hottest countries for next year,” but I assume they mean destinations that are, or have been, under the […]

Want The Real Berlin? Try Sleeping In A Berliner’s Bed. Berliner Optional

Friday, August 21, 2009

I guess I didn’t realize that short-term/weekly rentals are far and few between in England, so imagine the shock a Londoner received when they found out they can squat in a decked-out Berlin penthouse for a full week for about the same as one night would’ve cost in a hotel. Turns out, Berlin’s student-heavy/artist friendly […]

Oktoberfest: Does Anyone Care?

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Oktoberfest is just around the corner, and just in time for this vapid event are your predictable slew of Oktoberfest “guides” that purport to help you fit in with the mostly tourist crowd that descends on Munich every year. I’m not so much against the idea of Oktoberfest — the annual event began back in 1810 […]
