TRIED & TESTED: WITT ISTANBUL

August 9th, 2012

Most striking feature:

The view. The shower. The interior. I can’t choose. This hotel is superb! It’s located on a steep street (take a taxi when you’re with your luggage) in a good neighbourhood. You can easily walk to Istanbul Modern for instance (down is easy, up a bit harder). The lobby is small yet beautiful decorated by Autoban. The Turkish design firm you have to love. I was lucky to get upgraded to their suite.

The elevator is decorated with a funny illustration of the bell boy. Once you arrive on the highest floor and open the door, you can only bring out the following word: wow! And then faint. The suite is so spacious and has everything you need to have. Like a couch to watch television on. An Awarded design Read more…

BEST OF 2011 IN DESIGN, HOTSPOTS & TRAVEL

December 19th, 2011

At the end of the year it’s time to look back at what you have achieved. In my case: a continuous feed of minimal 2 spots a day (sometimes 3). I’ve reached a total of 1000 posts. And, most important, I hope that I inspired you, my dear reader, to go out there and travel the world! 

Because I love making lists: here’s my Top 25 of 2011. Places I’ve visited and got my heart pounding a little bit faster :)

1. Best date. Everyone is asking me the same question day in and day out: are you making money out of Petite Passport? Not yet, is my answer (hope to turn that around in 2012) but I received something way more important by blogging my way through hotspots: the greatest man alive! And it all started with a date at Mazzo, April 2.

2. Best hotel Read more…
