The stereotypical backpacking girl is often portrayed as a 'look, I didn't take a shower for a week' kinda girl with dreadlocks and an outfit that screams 'I don't care how I look because I am a backpacker and I'm freeeee!'. Now let me tell you that I'm not that kinda girl. I'm the girl that selects her outfit thoughtfully and puts on make-up almost every day. Not excessively, but the regular tinted bb cream, powder, blush, eyeliner, eyeshadow (very natural though), and mascara seem to find my face every single day.
So now we get to the subject I would like to discuss: Do you take makeup on a backpacking trip? And if yes: which make-up do you take with you?

Sorry, it's been a while since my last post. But I'm back again with a nice little gadget which, according to my boyfriend, I really need to take with me on my backpacking trip. He wanted to give me a practical backpacking tool as a gift (for no reason, did I already tell you I have the best boyfriend in the whole world?). So he gave me a Leatherman.

FINALLY there is a great new online competition. A contest with which you can win some awesome stuff. Curious yet?
Samsonite has come up with a fun contest in which students can design their own print which will actually go in production on a limited edition Samsonite Curv suitcase. How amazing is that? The reason why they are doing this contest is the introduction of a new print proces. Very interesting, but what is that great prize you can win?

Tattoos: you either love 'em or you hate 'em. I absolutely love (most) tattoos and I like the idea of telling a story with the ink on one's body. I have got one tattoo myself and I got it about 7 years ago after graduating high school. I already knew back then that someday my tattoo would have a little friend.
Since I am a travel addict, a travel tattoo seems like a good plan to me. So I've been surfing around the internet for quite some time now to find a suitable design to match my personal ideas. I came up with the following travel tattoo ideas, but I am not sure yet which one I will turn into a real tattoo....

I absolutely love eating a good lunch on a sunny terrace in the city. One of my favourite lunch places of all time has an amazing dish on the menu: The Carpaccio Tortilla. I never would have come up with the idea of putting carpaccio in a tortilla, but it actually makes a very nice lunch dish.
|Beef carpaccio tortilla with rocket lettuce. Deliciousness!|
So I tried the recipe at home and I would like to share it with you. Well, it's actually not really a recipe because it doesn't involve any cooking or mixing ingredients whatsoever. Anywayz..
Today's recipe: Carpaccio tortilla.
