Today I am throwing it back to happier times, because some people really believe that times back then (be it the summer or last year or a decade ago) were so much happier than they were now. This image was taken in late August at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. What a short but extremely long 4 1/2 months it’s been…Read More »
Travel Fever – we all know what it feels like. And what better way to cure it than to start booking away a few trips here and there? This year I am planning on taking as much if not more vacation as I did in the previous year Read More »
This past weekend has been quite cultural in many aspects: From exhibitions over a Broadway Show to exploring a whole new culture – I feel January has been quite pleasing in every aspect imaginable so far. Read More »
We are halfway through January on this beautiful weekend day. How have you guys been experiencing the brand-new year of 2017 so far?
I am off tomorrow thanks to Martin Luther King Day (a floating holiday in the US). So today is practically my Saturday, although it feels like quite a peaceful and productive Sunday, too. I managed to sleep in a bit and wake up refreshed. Read More »
Today I went to a magical exhibition at the New Museum. One of those once-in-a-while moments that kind of take your breath away without you really knowing why. Pipilotti Rist’sPixel Forest has been on display in the Lower East Side since October 26th of last year. Spread across the three main floors of the museum, she features a quite magical artistic composition of art installations made of video projections, curtains and more. Read More »
Its’ the last day of the year 2016 and you know what that means: Time for the Year in Review!
This year has been certainly one of a kind (well, aren’t they all, the years?!). It seems that the continuous line of change, which has been a very strong part of my life since 2014 perhaps, is slowly but surely progressing. Change – in every way possible – I feel that is the code word of 2016, if any. Read More »
Last month I was invited to my first Yelp Elite Event. Ever since becoming a Yelp Elite Member in October, I was seeking to finally attend some of their great events. One was ice-skating in Prospect Park, which I missed out on. Another was the opening night of a restaurant nearby, which I was also unable to attend. Read More »
It’s eleven days into December, which means there are less than 3 weeks left until the end of this year. Crazy! This month is usually the month during which all things festive start popping up. After Thanksgiving all stores have somehow let loose and are now in the right spirit for Christmas, or Hannukah, or the holidays in general – whichever is more important to you. Read More »
My 30ieth day of blogging has come around! Ever since signing up for the NaBloPoMo challenge, I knew I just had to complete it. I’ve literally only once completed a month-long writing challenge, and that was more than a year ago and only after a second attempt.Read More »
San Diego as a city managed to surprise me in every good way possible. I spent three full days in SoCal and, from what my coworkers, family and everyone else were telling me, that should have been enough to bore the heck outta me. Well, surprisingly, I found these three days just the right amount of time to get to know this lovely town and, contrary to my previous beliefs, I wouldn’t mind spending even more time here or re-visiting the city. From the first day, I saw quite some diversity in SD. Read More »
Mission and Pacific Beach were pretty nice by itself. But after seeing some pictures and hearing stories, I knew I had to check out La Jolla. So on my last day in San Diego I made the trip over to the coast again (altogether about an hour of a bus ride from the Gaslamp District). Read More »
