I get a feeling that a lot of us have already used Airbnb to book an apartment or a room whenever we travel. So I am always a bit surprised when I meet the occasional reluctant person. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. But I just thought by now anyone has tried it once.

Last year has been amazing travel wise. It brought so many wonderful opportunities that we just couldn’t miss. And Switzerland was just one of those. My best friend from third grate got married (YAY!) and we couldn’t be more happy to witness the happy event. She’s always said I had to visit but there’s always been something else interfering. This time there was nothing that could stop me from going 🙂

One of the biggest street art “galleries”, a huge open-air collection of street art is in NYC Brooklyn, more specific the area known as Bushwick Collective. This area expanded a lot in recent years, and Brooklyn is the most representative neighborhood for this type of art in New York. You will notice many murals spread in Manhattan streets as well, but this is a sort of organized area where local or international artists paint, spray or decorate.

I was sure I’d love Ålesund as soon as I saw the vivid architecture. Buildings details and colorful ornaments draw a lot of attention. Actually, this is how Alesund is known: the Art Nouveau town, which was destroyed by a fire in 1904. 

We reached Norway through Ålesund and this is a good starting point to see the Sunnmøre area and Geirangerfjord, the Unesco site.
