The Most Unconventional Berlin Bucket List

illustrations: Berk Karaoglu.  We decided to rethink the concept of a conventional bucket list and came up with scenarios that shamelessly embrace Berlin’s potential as the backdrop of some memorable experiences. And ‘’memorable’’ is actually somewhat of an understatement here – some of these shenanigans are simply unforgettable, even if some parties involved may indeed wish otherwise. While we are by no means condoning every single one of these actions, let alone encourage anyone to draw any...

Sightseeing in Orlando: 3 Essential Tips for Travelers

Orlando is not only a major American metropolis, but also the capital of entertainment, which in the future will overshadow the famous Las Vegas. Today, Orlando is one of the fastest growing cities in the world, but until the middle of the last century, it was just a small settlement. The brilliant Walt Disney’s idea turned Orlando’s life upside down. The amusement park Walt Disney World, built on an empty place of the city, made it the country’s biggest tourist attraction. Since then the city...

Best orchid gardens in the world

Few flowering plant families are as diverse and geographically widespread as the orchid family, or Orchidaceae. Twenty-five thousand orchid species have been identified around the world. Some are dainty with monochromatic petals; others have big bulbous bodies and loud patterns like bright spots or stripes. Still others have the look, smell, and feel of a female bee (check out Ophrys to see for yourself) or resemble a monkey’s face (see Dracula aphrodes and Dracula marsupialis). For the best ...

10 Fun Activities to Get Rid of Your Winter Blues in Berlin

Crowd-Sourced Botany

Citizen scientists making observations of invasive Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) along Newtown Creek As a botanist at the New York Botanical Garden, Daniel Atha had travelled all over the world to study plants in their native habitats.  Then, one day, it occurred to him that he knew more about the plants of Belize than those of New York, the city he calls home.

Madeira: A green oasis on a blue ocean

It was discovered by the Portuguese in 1418 and is in the Atlantic Ocean, just 1h30 from Lisbon. This is made up of the islands of Madeira, Porto Santo, wild and deserted islands.

An Urban Road Trip around the Southwest of Berlin

Sponsored Sometimes when we follow our everyday life in our little neighborhoods traveling between a maximum of three districts from work, to the girlfriend, and back home, we completely forget how big Berlin actually is and how much there is to discover beyond our usual comfort zone. And as we need to soak up as much daylight as possible in the darker and colder season of the year we have all the more reason to go out and explore the city beyond the S-Bahn ring. Thanks to the multiple comfort...

Tulip or Not Tulip – THAT was the Question by Bob Hill

There is a soldiers and sailors memorial garden near the center of my small Ohio River town that also pays homage to our local police and firemen. Nobody wanted to leave anybody out. It’s just that kind of town. When we moved here to Utica, IN about 40 years ago the tilted remains of an old house were perched at that corner, an eyesore that gave way to a wrecking crew. It was followed by some local guys with a few thousand bricks who created a semi-circular wall about five feet tall, most of the...

Part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark, the goal of the Botanical Garden in Copenhagen is to add to the knowledge and understanding of the diversity of the vegetable and fungi kingdom. The centerpiece of the park is the 1874 Palm House, a Victorian era glass greenhouse that p...

10 Reasons to Visit Padua

Amongst cities in the Veneto, Venice takes center stage. But in nearby Padua, visitors can enjoy important art and architecture without jostling hordes of tourists.

It is home to one of the oldest universities in the world, a traditional open market, canals, churches and endless arcaded streets fit for wandering.
