Paris Travel Diary Day 4

Since I was not able to transfer these pictures via cable in the train I’m writing this from my home. Sorry for the delay!

We are back. Had a more chilled last day (We walked 45km in 4 days!). Got a new tattoo as I usually try to do in different cities! Thank you Kylam! Wanted to see the Maison Rouge, unfortunately it was closed on Tuesday. So we went to the UNESCO building which Marcel Breuer, Pier Luigi Nervi and Bernard Zehrfuss designed. Short visit at the new Bape store. Some quick lunch in the most awesome Algerian restaurant and back to the train station!

Thank you Paris for having us. We had a blast!

Paris Travel Diary Day 3

Went early to the city centre to visit Lafayette, Colette and a bunch of other stores. Had a little lunch at Chipotle and finally went to the Louvre. Last time I was in Paris I hadn’t the chance. Sad that 70% of the visitors are going straight to the Mona Lisa and leave. There is so much more to see. I was most exited to see a Hieronymus Bosch but unfortunately the area was under construction. Next time, right?

After 15km today we had to go back to the hotel and change to some sneakers!
Went to Pigalle afterwards to see the Hotel Amour by my favorite Artis Andre Saraiva and the famous Pigalle basketball court. The Sacre Coeur at night time was incredible! Some wine to finish the night as usual!

See you tomorrow!

Ulm – Basquiat and Beer

I’ve wanted to go to Ulm for a long time now! Finally had the time and our good friend Ben moved there some weeks ago. So we could also visit him. Thanks again for everything!

Visited the Hochschule für Gestaltung. If you don’t know anything about it, read this wiki article! Architecture by Max Bill and staff like Otl Aicher made this a very special place to learn everything about design, fonts, photography etc. Also the famous Ulm-Chair was designed right here. In 1968 the school/university closed but its legacy is still alive. Incredible place!

On our second day we went to the Weishaupt Gallery and the City Museum which also had a little HfG part which we wanted to see. As you can see the gallery had some rare rare pricey art. Incredible private collection which isn’t usual at all! Thanks Ulm! See you again!

Antwerpen Travel Diary Day 4

Here is our last day in Antwerp. But surely not the last time here. Had a great time and there is still so much to discover!

 

Strolled through the city and went to the Museum aan de Stroom. The museum itself looks incredible. But inside you have so much different collections to discover. If you ever visit Antwerp go there! Really liked the maya collection and the after death in different cultures  collection.
