  • Stolpersteins are small, cobblestone-sized memorials for individual victims of Nazism. Dinkelsbühl, Germany

Just look down: the memorial you may never see in Europe

If you ever take the time to look down at the ground, which, if you are like any of others in the Millennial Generation, than you are already looking down at your phone. However, if you take time to look past the latest video of kittens on Facebook, you will see one of the largest and possibly underappreciated art projects in Europe. Stolperstein at Salzstraße 2, Münster The ‘Stolperstein’ is a [...]

Czech It Out: Holešovická Tržnice

In its youth, Holešovická Tržnice served as a site for cattle slaughter – then it got married, had kids, bought mom jeans and now, lives a tamer life as a market for cheap goods, fresh produce and second-hand clothes. A little bit of everything, this marketplace probably looks something like your grandma’s attic, plus bushels of fruit and vegetables. For farmer’s market lovers, Holešovická Tržnice’s Hall 22 boasts a respectable range of [...]

Five Places to Ditch the Crowds in Vinohrady

1. Jiřího z Poděbrad Farmers Market         Mass production is for the masses – leave the packaged life behind for a day wandering rows and rows of a farmer’s market, picking your own damn avocadoes. Well, yes, not from actual trees, but from market stands, and that’s basically the same thing. Basic-ally. Open Wednesday & Friday 08:00-18:00, Saturday 08:00-14:00. 2. Baobab Why yes, baobab trees were referenced in The [...]

  • Skull in Sedlec Ossuary

A Farewell to Arms

All these bones, baby, and you still haven’t noticed mine. For if you’re ever in need of a pick-up line at the Sedlec Ossuary. The Bone Church, Kutná Hora’s claim to fame isn’t even actually in Kutná Hora, but that’s the biggest town nearby. About an hour from Prague, Kutná Hora thrives on tourism, which is no surprise considering the main attraction. Decked out in over 40,000 skeletons, the Bone Church is [...]

A Brave New (Hostel)World

Kraków, day one. I have heard so many butchered pronunciations of this city name that I tend to go as middle-of-the-road on it as my middle school hair part, and mumble Crack-Ohh(f) in a travesty of an accent. My pronunciations aren’t too popular with the locals. The middle part didn’t fare too well either. If you haven’t figured it out quite yet, let me save some time. Curly hair should not be [...]

American Broads

4th of July - the anniversary of our emancipation from British governance, the start of something new (High School Musical? No?), the birth of America - or specifically, of white America. I couldn’t find a bald eagle to make out with or a minority group to exploit, but I did my best to dress the part. High-waisted shorts because men apparently hate them, but my shorts are riding up, and my ass reports [...]

Hostel Hoes: Great Fornications

Staying in hostels is like Russian roulette except you have a mildly lower chance of getting shot. The third in a series, Hostel Hoes, detailing shit I have seen. In some cases, quite literally, shit. It is 7:30 am. The moon is out, and I don’t mean the astral body. Pale, white, round - yes - but also mildly hairy. Could use some squats. He drops something. The moon splits open, and I learn [...]

Hostel Hoes: Where the Vile Things Are

Staying in hostels is like Russian roulette except you have a mildly lower chance of getting shot. The second in a series, Hostel Hoes, detailing shit I have seen. In some cases, quite literally, shit. “Dude, yeah, I get it, but like - you shit on my bed.” Whoomp, there it is. Two British boys I would describe as on the cusp of manhood but not there yet, convene on a step right [...]

Hostel Hoes: Mopey Dick

Staying in hostels is like Russian roulette except you have a mildly lower chance of getting shot. The first in a series, Hostel Hoes, detailing shit I have seen. In some cases, quite literally, shit. “Do you have any gay friends? Like for me?” a pudgy North Dakotan says (half-screams) tipsily, as he quite literally tips over because balance is hard nowadays. He sways his hips a little sensually but he’s not Shakira [...]

  • A picture of the entrance of the concentration camp Thereisenstadt

In Remembrance Of

A week ago, I met a Czech woman in a pub whose daughter had been to Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. Auschwitz, she said, oof. It’s really sad. Theresienstadt's not that bad. At least no one got gassed. I visited. I don't agree. •   The small fortress, located in Terezín, what would go on to become the concentration camp, was not built by the Nazis. It was constructed for Emperor Joseph II who chose to name [...]
