How many of you use Airbnb when traveling? I've been using them for a few years whenever I stay in a city longer than a weekend and have had so many great experiences.

This past week I got the chance to try out their new Airbnb Experiences - tours by locals. I did a foodie one here in Berlin where you learn to cook some German specialities, but with a twist. It was a fun night!

NEW! I just published the latest in my series of Hipster City Guides - this time for Dallas, TX (my hometown). Dallas, Texas has a reputation for being BIG. It’s a sprawling city part of the mega Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex (one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States south). But Dallas encapsulates that southern charm and local Texas flair while promoting a modern and forward-thinking culture. There’s history in Dallas, of course. It’s home to Dealey Plaza where John F. Kennedy was assassinated, but beyond that, it’s a city that’s grown into one of the best cultural hubs in the south. Read more:

Berlin's ubahn and sbahn stations are some of the best places across the city for photography. I love the architectural designs and the mix of historic and contemporary structures. It's funny how some are so bright and light while others are dark and cavernous - but the variety makes for great photography explorations πŸ“Έ

Even as mobile phones have made phone booths obsolete, you'll still find the iconic red phone booths across England - they're too engrained into the culture (and a tourist favorite) to completely remove!

There's this cute cafe in Manchester that sells cereal-themed desserts and milkshakes called Black Milk. So many delicious ice creams and treats - the perfect place for a date!

Manchester's gay village along Canal Street is one of the world's most iconic. It's been the site of many tv shows and series and the pride festival is sometimes considered the UK's largest 🌈

Good morning from Manchester! This city may be one of the UK's largest but it feels like such a tight, friendly and welcoming community. After the terrorist attack here, the city came together and has proven that love is stronger than hate

Moxy Hotels opened up near Berlin Ostbahnhof in the past year - they're an affordable brand with a cool vibe. Personally I love their lobby and it's a great place to chill out with fast wifi, good drinks and board games.

Berlin has a number of different breweries. (This is Germany after all!). Rollberg brewery is located in NeukΓΆlln and you'll find their beers in many of the local bars. Personally I like the blonde beer but their red one is also really popular.

I visited Szczecin, Poland this weekend - just for a day and just to take some fun photos with some other Berlin photographers. (And to buy some vodka and eat pierogi, too, of course!). It's an easy day trip from Berlin and there are some cool shops and spots to see in the city! πŸ‡΅πŸ‡±

Found a vegan Asian restaurant in Kreuzberg called Soya - this was the fried avocado (not exactly fried, but still tasty!). It's a good spot for a quick lunch on Falckenstrasse
