How to Pack for a Year in Europe- the murphmans. On the Bauhaus Trail in Germany. “For many people,” said Dr.

On the Bauhaus Trail in Germany

Jaeggi, “Bauhaus has more of a negative aspect than a positive one.” Yet a closer look at Bauhaus and the German modernist architectural movement known as Neues Bauen, or New Objectivity, makes clear how little these movements had to do with the prefab obscenities of postwar modernism. Today, many Bauhaus devotees hope the centenary program will sow domestic interest and pride in the movement at a time when Germany is bitterly divided over its reception of refugees and reckoning with its cultural identity. Though small, Weimar, a leafy, picture-book tourist town about 50 miles southwest of Leipzig, has an outsized cultural significance in the country. Yet as pretty as the hometown of Goethe and Schiller is, there’s something stifling about Weimar’s cobblestone Old Town, with its faux-medieval terrace restaurants full of retirees contentedly eating fruitcake.

In the recreated studios, the atmosphere of the Bauhaus remains palpable today. Everything from the floor plan and the materials to replicas of the original furniture has been returned to its original state in meticulous detail. Some rooms evoke their former inhabitants by virtue of the furniture designs: selected rooms are currently dedicated to the Bauhauslers Alfred and Gertrud Arndt, Josef and Anni Albers and Franz Ehrlich. The studio building completed in 1926 is also known as the Prellerhaus. Morocco Travel Guide - Map, Highlights & Travel Tips. Looking for accommodation?

4 Reasons to Visit the Greek Islands in Winter

If you only like swimming and partying then you probably haven’t, but if you’re a fan of unique (and almost entirely deserted) towns, awesome scenery and warmish (but perfect for walking) weather, you should probably skip the high season and go in winter (unless you’re travelling alone and want to meet other people as some of the islands get very quiet). Here are 4 reasons why you should visit the Greek islands in winter (it was going to be 5 but I ran out of ideas…). It’s Cheap to visit the Greek Islands in winter! If you’re travelling Europe on a budget and want to check out the Greek islands, you’d better do it in winter (or at least not in the middle of summer). The islands get very quiet and while some hotels close up completely, others remain open and discount their rooms drastically.

Greek Island Hopping - Package tour or not? - Cyclades Forum - TripAdvisor

Re: Greek Island Hopping - Package tour or not? Cloud925, we've gone island hopping both ways; first time to Greece was on an organized package tour (through Transat), and subsequent trips we've organized on our own. I've compared the costs and it's definitely cheaper to arrange your own holiday; possibly as much as 25 to 30 per cent. The flights, ferries, hotels and transfers can all be arranged easily enough online. Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walking Route.

7 Ways To Live Like A Local While Traveling. 10 Reasons Why Japan is Awesome for Solo Female Travel. I didn’t go to Japan looking to test out its safety or to see if it was or wasn’t a good place for solo female travel. I’m so used to traveling on my own these days that it seems normal to me, however I have to say, I was especially blown away by my solo experience in Japan. Not only did I feel safer in Japan than I usually do back home in LA, but I also felt more respected, welcomed, and able to freely and easily explore than I have in most countries.

The people in Japan are some of the nicest I’ve ever met, and there was not one single millisecond when I thought I was in a dangerous area or situation. Macs Adventure.
