The Roundhouse was built as a steam-engine repair shed in 1846, and then became a warehouse before falling into disuse for 25 years and reopening as a performing arts venue in 1964 hosting acts like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and Pink Floyd. It was redeveloped between 2004-2006 and is one of my favourite music venues in London; it’s a beautiful building, has a great sound and isn’t too huge so feels fairly intimate. Some highlights for me this year were The Flaming Lips, David Byrne & St.Vincent and the Timepiece installation by Conrad Shawcross.
Meadow Mountain is a sweet little spot for ski or snowboard touring, paragliding and snowmobiling in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. The skiing down is quite mellow so it's a good option when the snow pack in Colorado is still unstable or when you're a beginner at ski touring.
Pack a backpack and trek all the way to the hut where you can camp for the night. Then, ski down the mountain again the day after.
A beautiful and spacious (outside of rush hour) way to get from Highbury, through east London to south of the river in minutes. The train snakes epically through Hoxton and Shoreditch and opens up the Jubilee Line via the beautiful Canada Water / Bermondsey stations.
I never heard about Havel until some friends and me checked out the google earth for a trip at the weekend. We went there in the german winter, oh yes...in the winter. I loved this place because is a small city island with a lake (which was frozen at that time) and with lovely houses and an old mill. I have never been there in the summer but i can imagine how wonderful would be.
Astar is a new café just opened around my neighborhood, and I am glad it opened! The decoration is cute, with lots of old furniture, including tables and chairs from elementary schools. The owner is only 29 years old, who had a dream of having a shop selling everything, so he started saving money since 15. It certainly brought a new atmosphere to the area, where is known for financial centre. Since the owner was a bartender at a famous bar in Taipei, don’t forget to order a customized cocktail not on the menu!
It is a charming and welcome green space in the heart of Barcelona. It has water displays including a beautiful fountain and small lake along with lots of grass verges to lie down and soak up the warm sunshine. A great spot for relaxation, a walk... the place that I like the most is a glass building full of plants inside.
Mr Kitly is a shop and gallery specialising in ceramics, books, plants and textiles. Much of the stock is from Japan, and everything makes you want to weep because it's so charming and pretty. The hanging plants are amazingly affordable too.
The Palmenhaus is located in the gardens of Schloss Schönbrunn. One hundred and thirteen meters long and 28 meters high, it features a central and two lateral pavilions. Each of the three pavilions has another climate and is filled with botanical treasures from all over the world.
Beautiful chaos. I recommend a "tour guide" your first time here as it is very easy to get lost in these tiny streets and alley ways. In 1147, the Berber Almohades conquered the city, destroying most of the buildings and rebuilding its' medina. A bustling market with different sections including tile, metal, art, scarves, jewelry, rugs, antiques, teas, oils, etc. Be careful to decipher what "shops" are authentically Berber, and which are actually just items made in china. A tour guide will also help teach you what to look out for...
