Keen for some real New York insider tips? Here you go - finally out the ultimate Elephant guide to NYC from an almost real New Yorker!

Does the world need another New York guide?

That is a question I asked myself before sitting down to write one of my own. And the honest answer is – probably not.

I love New York, and I think you will either love it (or hate it) too no matter what you do. Then again, I know I like guides and inspiration myself. I also know that I am pretty good at finding cool places, you may even call me a truffle pig when it comes to finding restaurants, hotels, and things to do. And no, I am not just very full of myself, my mother said it first! You know that mothers are always right

Just before I slipped off to Lapland and China I spent a sneaky 15 minutes to book yet another flight. This one will take me to my old home, all time favorite big city and a very special wedding location: New York. I am beyond thrilled actually, it will be the first time visiting my old hood(s) in years. I am looking forward to not only reconnect with all of my friends there and go back to some of my favorite spots but also to discover some new treasures. Any recommendations of must dos and must-eats please let me know!

Favela tour yes or no, that was the big question when I came to Rio. I decided to go for it, but left with more questions than answers.

Usually, I feel quite strongly that there are right and wrong ways to travel. Sometimes though it becomes more of a murky gray zone and I am not so sure myself. Elephant riding? No! Eating a spider leg? Yes! (at least once). Photographing the tooth seller at the Jemaa El Fna for some change? Yes! Photographing the monkeys next to him? No

Remember I promised you to come back from Brazil with a great Caipirinha recipe?! I took that job very seriously and drank A LOT of them, just for educational purposes of course.
To be quite honest I never much liked Caipirinha before. If I had the choice I would always go for a Mojito instead. Even when I drank my last one in Germany for picture purposes I was a bit underwhelmed and not really looking forward to them
That all changed with my first sip of a real Brazilian Caipirinha and the realization that it is the best dish I would find here. Yes, that’s right I am calling it a dish
