FINLAND TRAVEL JOURNAL | NUUKSIO | HELSINKI ARCHIPELAGO

Not only is Helsinki packed with nice places and neighbourhoods and cafés and museums, it also has an incredible location making it super easy to experience Finland and its beautiful nature without really having to leave the region. With water all around the city exploring the area by boat is by far the coolest thing to do (go and quickly make some Finnish friends!) and Nuuksio National Park, less than an hour away from the city, seems like the perfect picture book Finland.

HELSINKI TRAVEL JOURNAL

My first journey up north, (further north than Kiel in Germany that is).  Spending 10 days in Finland was such an amazing experience: exploring Helsinki with my Finish friend Peppi, a day trip to Estonia, hiking in national parks and cruising around the Archipelago on a speedy boat. Helsinki as a city is just beautiful, packed with cool cafés and inspiring people, cute boutiques, restaurants, museums Рand so, so much water everywhere. So here is to my first time up North, my great Finnish host and nordic summers spent on a boat.

[CITY GUIDE] LONDON

It’s been a while now but spending the last few weeks far away from my laptop, without any (well-working) Wifi and only limited mobile data I hadn’t had the chance to post anything. Until now, I’m back home for a few days, with the post-travel depressions setting in and many new posts planned.¬†London is already a month ago (feels like 5 though), but I still managed to take some notes and show you some of my favourite places I have discovered while spending the weekend there. So here we go, a small city guide to a city, where probably half a million city guides already exist for.

RECIPE: GAZPACHO – REFRESHING SPANISH TOMATO SOUP

If there is something the Spanish definitely know how to do it’s food. Think of tapas, paella, patatas bravas… But my absolute favourite Spanish (actually Andalusian) dish is Gazpacho, a refreshing cold vegan tomato soup which is so easy and quick to make you will not want to make anything else anymore for the rest of the summer.

LONDON TRAVEL JOURNAL | BOROUGH MARKET & BRICK LANE

One last exam and I was officially done with my second semester and off visiting friends in England (yes, the Brexit was the No.-1-topic of discussion and yes, everything was cheap). I had an amazing week in Brighton and the English countryside, going on long walks, napping and watching old movies, baking shortbread and generally not doing a lot due to our end-of-the-year-exhaustion. And then I took the train to London, walked 18 km three days in a row, explored approx. every street in the city and had the best time.

AMFI ATELIER SHOW

A few weeks ago I had the incredible chance to photograph back- and frontstage at the ATELIER SHOW of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. I cannot describe how much I enjoyed this, running around between the people, capturing these moments of excitement and fear, curiousness and tension, observing all the people rushing around getting ready for the show. I can finally show you my favourite photos, and yes, it’s a lot. Photographing real models is super fun, and backstage even more.

SCOPOPHILIA ARTS FESTIVAL

 Being part of the Art Committee at my uni we spent the last months organising Scopophilia, our arts festival, which took place in the beautiful garden of Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam Noord. Working on the event was an incredibly intense experience and even though there were quite a few ups and downs (and maybe more downs than ups), all the work definitely paid off in the end.

[CITY GUIDE] LISBON

I think it’s not necessary to tell you over and over again how much I liked Lisbon and what an amazing city it is and so on and so on. Just one thing: go go go, visit it, have a great time, safe a lot of money because it’s cheap (I’m speaking of 10‚ā¨ for a pretty good hostel bed and 9 for a perfect three-course-menu), it’s laid-back, it’s young and creative, and beautiful and busy and not too big but big enough. And so close to Europe’s most beautiful beaches. And after booking your flights takes notes and follow this little guide around one of my favourite cities.
