1. This Cottage on a Paris Rooftop (for rent) Le Ribera is ideal for those looking for a peaceful hideaway to escape to after a hectic day in the French capital.
I‘ve been spending some time getting to know the secrets of Barbès as of late. Had I ever listened to those funny people on the television who called this neighbourhood a Paris “No Go Zone”, I would never have discovered one of the most surreal places I’ve come across yet in Paris. If you ever find yourself in the area, you must stop in at the most extraordinary shoe shop behind the unassuming facade of 34 Boulevard Barbès … Kata is a bargain shoe bazaar where you can shop endless piles of moccasins, pumps and boots for as little as 3 euros a pair, but that’s not why we’re here.
No one likes a visit to the car pound, it probably counts among my least favourite places to be on earth, but you wouldn’t have a hard time convincing me to pay a visit to the one hidden 150ft below a piazza in the city of Naples, sealed off after WWII and forgotten about for more than 60 years.
The permanent museum collection at the Fashion Institute of Technology currently includes something like 50,000 garments and accessories, dating from the 18th century to the present, so I suppose you could say that cleaning out their closet is perhaps overdue.
I grew up part-time near a town called Uzès in the South of France and on our way into town, we would always pass a mysterious property by the roadside. I remember my mother telling us it used to belong to a famous art collector, and she would even let us stop and sneak up to the gate on occasion to get a closer look, squeezing our little faces in between the iron bars.
To save your next dinner party (and its guests) from the curse of politically-correct small talk, set the table–and your ambiance– with a radioactive sense of irony.
“A small German town with a tricky name, which I immediately forgot. Somewhere in Eastern Germany. People have not lived here for a long time, and only occasionally tourists come to walk through the deserted, dilapidated streets.” In these photographs by Russian photographer Dmitry Chistoprudov, it looks like World War II ended just yesterday.
1. Abandoned Detroit Ballroom, host to Jazz Royalty, may get a second chance… The Vanity Ballroom hosted jazz greats including Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Dizzy Gillespie and Ella Fitzgerald.
I just got a postcard (fine, it was an email) from my favourite motel in the world, to say that they’ve opened a brand new Hicksville location!
(c) Brian Gratwicke Not a single ship visited Tristan da Cunha from 1909 until 1919, until the HMS Yarmouth finally stopped by to inform the islanders of the outcome of World War I.
I had been curious about what was behind the door of No. 6 Rue Gît-le-Cœur in Saint Germain for quite a while before I decided to Google it, half expecting to be disappointed by news that it no longer existed.
This post doesn’t require much introduction, only a question. Why is the abandoned road always the most tempting one to take?
Today I found a photograph of an ordinary German coffee shop circa 1941, with German signage above the windows that read “Soldatenkaffee Madeleine“.
Those precious moments of alone time in the bathroom are priceless to many of us, and yet strangely enough, it was one of the few luxuries the King and Queen of England could not afford.
1. A Time Capsule of Medical History Discover this amazing little museum in Indiana, found on Thought & Sight.
I think I’m ready for my first trip to North Korea. I know this because I just spent the entire afternoon researching restaurants I’d like to “experience” when I’m there– not that I’d likely have much choice in the matter.
Assuming that you’ve already mastered the art of IKEA furniture assemblage, here’s something to take your DIY talents to the next level.
I may very well be inviting the wrath of the Scientology tech department with this article (surely they have a team of hackers on sabotage duty somewhere), but that my friends, is a risk I’m willing to take in order to share these fascinating images from the 1994 Scientology handbook, recently surfaced on the web.
Between 1900 and 1930, a poor vagabond seed peddler took more than five thousand photographs of daily life in an isolated valley of the Italian-speaking Swiss territory to the south of the Alps.
