The Thingyan Water Festival to celebrate the new year in Yangon, Myanmar

Thingyan is the Burmese way to ring in the New Year. A country troubled with drought and poisonous water, celebrates by spraying an enormous amount of water each April. Smoking, meat-consuming, and drinking monks are not a rare sight. Who says that buddhists can’t lose control sometimes. 

Without knowing it would be this intense I stayed in Yangon where the festival started. I found the most unlikely group of people to have a good time with – engineers from Nigeria. A few beers, roasted crickets, and getting kicked out of the restaurant for causing a riot were documented with my friends in the streets of Yangon. 19th street aka Chinatown is the perfect place to be when...

A climb to the mount Zeus (ZAS), the highest peak in the Cyclades in Naxos, Greece

Sophocles said that “…Zeus who oversees and directs all things is still mighty in heaven” When visiting the island Naxos in Greece again this year I went on yet another religious trip onto the peak that marks the birthplace of Zeus, the God in the sky. Every time I come back to the island I make my way up to the peak for a crystal clear view from the heart of the cyclades – Paros, Ios, Donousa, Koufonisia, Schoinousa, Keros and even Amorgos just a glimpse away.

Filoti marks the starting point in your journey to heaven. As the sun was slowly ascending I made my way up a stone-path passing the only locals that I could... Read More

A weekend in Zurich at the Marktgasse Hotel

Anyone who had spent a bit of time in Zurich last summer scoping out Manifesta, will recognise that there’s a lot more to the city than cheese and chocolate. It’s the city that gave birth to the Dada movement, for one. Two: it’s home to a stunning pavilion by Le Corbusier. And, as Switzerland’s largest city, and one of the world’s wealthiest, it’s a haven for art collectors and for galleries that jostle for their attention.

Conveniently, most of which—Hauser & Wirth, Eva Presenhuber and Francesca Pia—to name but a few; not-for-profit institutes like the influential Kunsthalle, Maja Hoffmann’s LUMA Westbau; and the Read More

A visit to Los Enamorados hotel by Pierre Traversier and Rozemarijn de Wittein in Ibiza, Spain

Los Enamorados is a boutique hotel opened this summer by ex-basketball player Pierre Traversier and his wife Rozemarijn de Witte, magazine editor. They fell in love with a run-down 1960s hotel in Portinax and their project started from there. Two years of renovation, nicely curated objects and furniture – all for sale – highlight the effortless mid-century charm of the building. Low key, refined and no-kid policy for a different stay in the quiet northern part of the island.

A visit to Boris Buono’s Ibiza Food Studio – The Finca in Ibiza, Spain

A couple of years after opening the Ibiza Food Studio in Sa Penya – the former fishermen district in the old town – ex-Noma chef Boris Buono opened his newest food studio The Finca in the countryside near San Miquel. The Finca is home for Boris, his staff, and a dozen of tables for guests. Michelin star food with an island greeting.
