If you visit Berlin, you have to go to Friedrichshain at least one time!
Once you are in Berlin, you have to visit Friedrichshain. This area is filled with clubs and bars. If you want to feel the real atmosphere of Berlin like in 80’s and B-MOVIE, you have to go there during the weekend time. Drug sellers, drunk girls and unhealthy people walk from a bar to bar and get lost in the scary lights of night club terraces. This area is one of the dirtiest places you will ever visit. Do not be scary – this kind of mood can inspire you on different things. If you go to a party, do not try to look perfect, because nothing is perfect in that area. If you want to feel like a punk boy from 80’s – you have to visit that place asap. No dress code, no party outfits – be ready for weed and beer.
“Punks used to live here a life. It was one of the loudest places in Berlin. ” – says one of native speakers. He was holding a bottle of beer and smiling with a true happiness in his eyes. “How old are you? Such pretty girls should not come here!”
If you are a true fan of new experiences in life, you can try and get inside this little hell. This place seems too freaky, but it can give an energy of an old punk generation.
Punks used to live here a life. It was one of the loudest places in Berlin.
Last November I visited Barcelona. It was my first trip to such a beautiful and charming city. I had only 2,5 days to see the every corner. But I probably did not see even the half of the city. I arrived on Thursday (people in Barcelona go out on Thursdays and parties last until Sundays), so I had no idea I would be leaving with a headache and a couple of new dresses and happy eyes of a party blogger. I booked one of pretty good looking hotels in the centre of the city, we were 1km away from the main street. The story began on the first night.
We decided to go out! I had no idea my whole gang was in Barcelona during my trip. About 6 people I know really close have been staying in the city until Friday. They invited me to a party into a club and I got back only at 6 am. In one night I made a lot of crazy meetings and had a real experience about Barcelona night life. The funniest thing was about the time of the begging of parties – people go clubbing after 3 am. Before 3 am everyone likes to do pre-drinks in bars. This is such a different situation to Russia. In my country people start at 8 pm and finish at 11 am, yes it happens all the time!
On the second day I decided to have a kind of a cultural program in the city. I am the person who’s into architecture and arts, so I picked one museum which I could not skip – Casa Batlló. That was one of the most inspirational buildings I’ve ever seen. Perfect place to visit for every person who travels.
Barcelona has an amazing climate. Even in a late November you can walk in a t-shirt and still not feel any cold. For Spanish people this weather seems really cold, but for Russian tourists it’s too perfect not to stay more.
By the end of the second day we had some time for shopping. We were lucky to stay in Barcelona during BLACK FRIDAY. That was my first real experience of REAL black friday. Spain celebrated this shopping day like one of the craziest events in the year. Thousands of people on streets and the main street is filled with the crowd. I did not expect to see so many people going out on Black Fridays in Moscow. Russians need more time to prepare (or get to used to) for this european event. It’s all different. But at the final point, I was obsessed with the spirit of shopaholic in me. I bought a lot and it was all what? I bought everything at Zara, I was surprised, because even Zara was absolutely different !
On the last day I had some time to make a street style photoshoot with Ohcaja (check out his instagram! He’s great). We picked 3 outfits and completed the shoot in 2 hours. I saw some beautiful streets which are hard to be seen for a tourist eye, thanks God I met people who live in Barcelona, I saw the most inspirational parts of it !
I had a lot of things happening with me in 2,5 days of staying in Barcelona, but that trip affected on me a lot. I got a lot of inspiration from the trip. I learned a lot and I found out new things about Antoni Gaudi, modern Bcn fashion and the best thing – I discovered new friends !
Traveling all over the world is what I live for. Thailand was the most inspirational place I’ve ever been to. Colorful cities, really delicious food, and SPA 24/7. Everything is extremely cheap and you can drink coconut juices every hour. I visited Thailand during the winter time there – it was rainy and cloudy but it did not make me feel bad at all. More than that, even if you visit Thailand during winter time you can get easily burnt and your skin looks gold and perfect. The best time to get a perfect tan is in August. You cannot swim in the ocean during winter time in Thailand but you can run into waves and get a lot of adrenaline. If you are a risky one, you can try a wind surfing, but that is too risky ! The flight from Russia (where I live) to Thailand is pretty long – about 10 hours, but you can enjoy watching to 3 of your favorite films and listen to some good music, but the best way to spend in the plain is to fall asleep. Thailand is full of snakes, so be careful if you live far from the city. Also, you can find some special ZOOs for crocodiles, elephants. If you visit Thailand during the summer time, you probably should visit any island or go to Safari. This trip will change your mind and the way of living. After spending the whole week there, I’ve got so many fresh ideas and so much inspiration! But what about fashion? If you fly to Phuket, you can easily forget about fashion trends and stuff – you are on a countryside. If you try to wear something expensive and cool, it can be so dirty later you are going to put it into a trash bag. Also, a lot of things get stolen there, so be patient with your laptops and iPhones. But to be honest, Thailand is almost the best place I’ve ever been to. You get the best food and have a high quality 2 (or more) hours massages every day. People in Thailand wear such bright and colorful clothes, it makes you almost blind sometimes (in a good way). I was inspired by seeing so many new things people wearing, they have no frames, they wear everything what gives them comfort and saves from the burning sun. Bangkok is really different about that, you can still see people cooking on roads and selling some weird products, but this city is the capital – it has its own fashion industry. Christians, buddhists, muslims and everyone make a big contrast in Bangkok, You see so many different cultures. Also, you can easily stuck in the longest traffic ever. Thailand is very beautiful and it gives you time to think about life and have a relaxation, but as soon as you stuck there on more than one month, you start transformation from a normal person to a typical native liver. You become lazy, slow and that is not that fun! So I wish you to visit this perfect place and stay there for 10 days, never take your Marni sandals even if you are the best fashion blogger in the world. Thailand will make you feel better and inspire you.
