I’m In Paris

Guess what? I’m finally in Paris! I’ll be here until Thursday and I’m so happy to be back. The sun was even shining for a while. The purpose of this trip is a hundred percent relaxation and fun, which is everything I need right now. We’re staying at a beautiful hotel during this trip, Hotel Opera Richepanse, with the best location. This is probably the best hotel I’ve ever been to.

We arrived very early in Paris on Monday, and we decided to eat lunch at the infamous Carette. Carette is famous for their scrambled eggs, and boy oh boy, they didn’t disappoint. Carette is the perfect place if you’re looking for a good breakfast or a lunch spot, though a bit expensive!

I love walking around in this city. It’s absolutely beautiful and there’s always something interesting around the corner. I’m very pleased with the weather too. It’s five degrees celsius, which means that the walking conditions are great.

I’m also taking over Femelle.no Instagram account while I’m here so follow Femelle on Instagram for recent updates! I would also love to get some recommendations when it comes to restaurants. We were very fortunate yesterday. I think we found the best restaurant ever! The food was immaculate!

The plan today is to stop by Galeries Lafayette at Hausmann and do some shopping and then stop by Notre Dame and the Christmas Market there!

Berlin: My Top 3 Favourites

I love to travel, and Berlin has quickly climbed on my favourite destinations list. The city is hip and there’s a lot to do and see. In 2016 I’ve already been to Berlin twice. I love the city life and as New York City is expensive and further away I’ve found some replacement destinations for the Big Apple. I want to share my top 3 favourite spots in the city!

Distrikt Coffee
This place is one of the main reasons as to why I go back to the city. Not only do they serve the best buttermilk pancakes, but they also have the coolest interior and a really great atmosphere. This is a must for everyone travelling to Berlin.


Are you looking for your favourite designers? Well KaDeWe is similar to EGER or Steen & Strøm in Oslo and plays host to some of the largest fashion designers in the world!

ZEN Restaurant

This place has some of the best Asian food I’ve ever had. The spring rolls are amazing, as well as the sushi and the summer rolls. The drinks are good and the prices are cheap! We went rolling back to the hotel after the first night, and the food was so good that we reserved a table for our last night as well – and we also went rolling back to the hotel that night. I would recommend that if you plan to visit this restaurant then you should reserve a table as it’s packed every single day!

Distrikt Coffee

If you ever happen to be in Berlin at some point, I really would like to recommend a visit to Distrikt Coffee. The interior is cozy, the waiters are super friendly and the food is great, and also Instagram worthy! Distrikt is located in Mitte, and is easy accessible by u-bahn or by train.

I always order the Buttermilk Pancakes when I’m there and they are always perfect! They also have a lot of other good choices on their menu. The coffee is also very good. I know that this would definitely be my coffee spot and weekend brunch spot if I lived in Berlin.

You can visit them at Bergstrasse 68! I would recommend to visit on weekdays, as they get pretty full on weekends!

Update from Berlin

So, I’ve been in Berlin for two days now and it feels great to be back. We’re staying at Pullman Schweizerhof in Berlin which is very central and is located in Mitte.

We went back to Distrikt Coffee, my favourite café in Berlin, where we had lunch the first day. After that we did some shopping. We went to Alexanderplatz where they already had the Christmas decor up, a bit early in my opinion.

Later that evening we went to have dinner at ZEN Restaurant, which is an asian restaurant. I had actually booked a table at the restaurant two months before, because I read that you had to be early to get a table. When we came to the restaurant they had forgotten our booking so they didn’t have a table for us. At this point I was so annoyed because we made a reservation two months prior to the event and I just told them that they had to solve the issue as we had a right to have a table. Fifteen minutes later we got a table – and let me just tell you guys that it was worth the wait. It was the best Asian food I’ve had! The food was amazing, so no regrets there!

Day Three in Barcelona

The days here are passing by so quickly! Today it actually rained a lot so we weren’t able to do much outside. We went for some shopping in Passeig de Gracia again, and I have to say how surprised I am by the difference of prices at Zara in Spain/Europe and in Norway! Wow. I can actually say that I did a lot of shopping – I had to buy two new suitcases to fit all of my new clothes!

This is the last day in Barcelona before we’re heading back to Oslo. We´re planning on eating at Balmes/Rosello restaurant that we went to on our first day here. The food and the drinks are amazing.

La Boqueria Mercat

Hi! Today we’ve been shopping and walking around the city. We stopped by the BOQUERIA MERCAT near La Rambla, because we’ve never been there. We ended up buying one of the juices that they sell, but I was so disappointed; the juice was warm and the flavour wasn’t what I expected it to be. I ended up buying a macaron and some ice cream, wish I was very happy with. If you’re going to Barcelona and haven’t been to the food market before, I would really recommend it, but it’s very crowded.

We walked down Passeig de Gracia, which is my favourite street in Barcelona. It isn’t as crowded as La Rambla, and the stores are better (or it depends on what you’re looking for). We really noticed the difference between Sunday’s and Monday’s in this city. Yesterday there were almost no one here, but today it was crowded everywhere.

Now we’re at the hotel again trying to figure out where we’re going to eat tonight! The choices are many!

Bon dia, Barcelona!

Good morning, Bon dia! It’s Sunday and I’m in BARCELONA! I’m staying here for four days and I couldn’t be more excited.We’re staying at the H10 Art Gallery Hotel which is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at. This hotel is my standard hotel when I go to Barcelona. It’s in L’Eixample and is only a five-minute walk from Passeig de Gracia. I have a lot of things that I want to do in the city this time around. I have been in Barcelona before, but I didn’t take the time to explore the city as I should have done.

We’re started our Sunday in Barcelona with a breakfast/brunch at Caravelle. This place is amazing. Later on we went to the Pablo Picasso museum (Museu Picasso), but there were too many people there, so we decided to leave and explore the area instead.

Later on, we’re eating dinner at a tapas restaurant called Balmes Roselló which is in L’Eixample. They have some of the best tapas I’ve tasted.

If anyone has any recommendations regarding where to eat and what to do while in Barcelona, please feel free to comment!
