Date with Free Willy and Flipper

Yesterday I dived into an amazing underwater world at Sea World San Diego. The shows were not only thrilling but also mesmerizing - with playful dolphins and breathtaking stunts by my favorite animals, killer whales. You can truly say that Sea World is entertainment at its best.
Nevertheless I watched the shows with mixed feelings. It's delightful to see the animals live and so close - I was even able to pet a dolphin, which was one of the greatest experiences I had in the US yet - but at the same time it's depressing to see them restrained in those tiny pools, having no chance to meet fellows, go hunting or to discover the endless wideness of the ocean. A couple of months ago I watched the movie 'The Cove' with my sister, which hit me really hard. I can highly recommend watching it because it exposes the truth about these kinds of parks and how the dolphins are captured. It really makes you think about the seemingly perfect world we live in...

Once upon a Time

Welcome to the place where imagination is the destination! I'm lucky to be able to discover the wonder of this magical, fantastical world. When you enter Disneyland Park, stories come to life around you, immersing you in tales from some of your favorite Disney films and you start building memories that last a lifetime...

Heading westward to the Golden State - let the Magic begin

Hooray, I made it! I'm in California and that is AMAZING! Spending two weeks in San Diego after the long, cold New Yorker winter is truly marvelous and just what I needed. The city is more than beautiful - palm trees, sandy beaches, exotic flowers and the golden sun as far as the eye can see - a Californian dream! Enjoy ;-)

The Orchid Show on Broadway

Have a look at the beautiful orchids Yasemin and I saw at the Orchid Show on Broadway at the New York Botanical Garden. What a relaxed day far from Manhattan's gray buildings, tight streets, and crowded places (which can also be adorable).

Sparkling, colorful, lively - welcome to SoHo

Spending most of the time in Midtown gets quite boring after a while, so why not discover a new part of Manhattan? Yesterday the subway took me to SoHo, and oh hello! Who would have thought that Midtown is NOT the most lively part of the city. I fell in love with SoHo right away - the colors, the fancy and freaky shops (check out the Lush store and hey, this is an amazing Converse store, right?), the Chinese treasures at Pearl River Mart and on top of all that the absolutely cool crowd of people that seems to think of the SoHo streets as runways.
