A BLOG FREE WEEK

August 31st, 2013

ineedasixmonthvacation

This week I’m gonna take a Blog Free Week. A week where I don’t use my laptop and my smart phone, to be completely unplugged. I’ll have to admit I’m very, very attached to my devices. And I’m in a profession I can’t be without a wifi signal. I love to post pictures on Instagram to take you with me on a trip, write blog posts on WordPress, chat via Whatsapp with my friends and family to keep them updated and promote my posts on Facebook. I start the day with my phone and I end it with it. And by seeing this film I’m very well aware of how life passes you by if you only have eyes for your smartphone. Especially when you’re on vacation. So this week I’m off. Leaving Read more…

July 30th, 2013

petitepassportgooglefieldtrip

After a successful launch in the States last year, it’s now possible to download Google Field in Europe as well (on both Android and iOS devices). And, the big news is, that all the addresses of Petite Passport can be found on it as well. Next to content of sites like Time Out, Zagat and Cool Hunting

So start exploring cities you’re traveling to while the app tells you where you find that cool hotel spotted on Petite Passport earlier or that hard-to-find cafe a few meters next to where you stand.

Google Field Trip loves to Read more…

LONDON WEEK ON PETITE PASSPORT

December 3rd, 2012

It was a quick trip to London during the busiest time of the year: the countdown to Christmas. And if there’s only one city in the world to visit if you want to have that Christmas fever as soon as possible, it’s London. So where did I go? The better question is: how did my shoes – and feet – survived this trip? I went to Southbank, Kentish Town, King’s Cross, Notting Hill, Islington, Shoreditch, Marylebone, Soho, Covent Garden, and the Somerset House area. I’ve visited Read more…

IN LOVE WITH MY NEW CANON EOS M

November 23rd, 2012

I’m so excited! I’m the proud owner of a brand new Canon EOS M and I can’t wait to take this black beauty to London next week. Yesterday I learned a lot about the smallest Single Lens Reflex camera Canon has ever made during a Masterclass. And while photographing with it, it was love at first sight.

3 reasons to get just as excited as I am:

- Love at first sight usually starts with seeing each other and this small camera really caught my eye. And I wasn’t the only one. When I took some photographs in the lobby of the Andaz Hotel, the location of the Masterclass, it felt like I was carrying a newborn baby. Everyone Read more…

PARIS WEEK ON PETITE PASSPORT

October 15th, 2012

One day in Paris. Last Saturday I did my best to capture the best of fall 2012 in Paris. So you can enjoy the newest spots when you’re heading there for a city trip (or maybe I can even surprise Parisian citizens with some new things). We will start with a scoop. A restaurant opened just a week ago and is so amazing I can’t wait to show you. Furthermore I’ve discovered a lot of cool coffee places. Some shops (like the one pictured above, which is the absolute heaven if you want to treat yourself to a completely new fall outfit, for both men and women) and there was a new Aesop store with an interior so inspiring you want to get into some DIY at home right away. I hope to inspire you to go out and enjoy Paris!  Read more…
