16 excellent gift ideas from New York’s cool MoMA Design Store

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City  is a museum that celebrates modern art and its Design Store reflects this very well! Combining inspiration from both timeless artworks and contemporary design, it offers a great range of objects for different tastes. In other words: it’s a great source for finding nice presents! It’s more fun if you can visit the museum’s shop yourselves, but if travelling to New York is not possible, there’a always the option of shopping online! Here are some cool…

10 of the most morbid tourist attractions in the world!

There are certain tourist attractions we’re all familiar with. They’ve been there for ages (and some not for that long) and they need no introductions. Sometimes you don’t even question why they are popular, because they’re simply iconic! Who cares what the Eiffel Tower was made for? It just has to be in the background of your selfie from #Paris while you’re feeling #blessed! 😀 But then there are cemeteries and attractions that don’t really bring back the fondest of memories!

Cool, modern (and free!) art for everyone at the Hirshhorn Museum

You know how at random times and at random places you come across images or conversations about certain things you never knew existed? This is what happened to me with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. It’s been some time now that I see people visiting it, posting about it and taking photos from it. I have to admit I never knew it existed or even how its name is pronounced! I mean who can pronounce it properly the first time they…

A historic exhibition restaged after 50 years in Buenos Aires

  When I was trying to plan my visit to Buenos Aires a few weeks ago, I got in touch with my friend Fran, who lives there. First I was partly hoping that he would have a plan (yes, I was feeling lazy!) and second (it goes without saying) meeting up with people in the places you go most of the times is so much better than ticking off lists of monuments. And when those people are as nice and…
