  • Les Femmes s’en Mêlent

    Les Femmes s’en Mêlent

    Women on the rise

    "We should all be feminists," from a powerful and progressive essay written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (2014) to a worldwide famous quote, used by Beyoncé in her single "Flawless," and recently seen on Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut show for Dior.

    Present-day it is all about women on the rise and what it means to be a feminist in the 21st century. Woman’s march on January 21st 2017, with over 5 Million female marchers worldwide and 1 Million in Washington has substantiated that the third wave of feminism is finally about to make the social change that it has so long been advocating for. Women today are more determined than ever to continue fighting for what their predecessors have been trying to attain since the 19th and early 20th century; gender equality.

    A new year, a new you, a new bucket list of magic metropolises to visit

    2017, once again a new year, and that of course can’t go without making yourself some new promises you hope to keep, but we have to admit, most of the times don’t. Those promises we like to call ‘New Year’s resolutions’. Sounds familiar, right?! Promising yourself to travel more often, is like a scout’s honor, a honorable promise you just cannot break. A new year, a new you, a new bucket list of cities you simply have to visit. Our ‘must-visit’ 2017 city bucket list is one you can’t resist. ‘Scout’s honor!’. Let us guide you and inspire your next trip, or even make you loose your hart to one of these cities and move abroad. Wherever it may lead you!

  • Winter is coming. Prepared for the city?

    Winter is coming. Prepared for the city?

    Autumn has arrived some time ago, the winter is getting closer and the signs of that are very clear. The amount of daylight is getting shorter each and each day, the cold obliges us to consume hot beverages to keep ourselves warm and we start to dress in layers. But it's also the coziest time of the year: the leaves have lovely red-orange colours, Christmas and all its marktets are just around the corner and cities get that magical look/feeling with all the lights in the streets.
