A former mansion that was transformed into a public park. Great green area, with a stone built trail so you can walk trough nature, perfect for kids to run or to get some time off from the big city. Peaceful place, with lakes and birds. The house itself is also beautiful to see. Free entrance

The most instagramable place in the city. For sure best breakfasts are here, but better to share blackberry pancakes with a girlfriend.

June Callwood Park
1 Notts Ave, Bondi Beach NSW 2026, Australia

It's definitely the most famous and most walked track in Sydney, and with such incredible views of the South Pacific Ocean it's not hard to see why. The walk also takes in Tamarama and Mackenzies Bay, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to take an Instagram worthy snap! Don't forget to pack your swimming costume.

The art here is incredibly quirky, nothing like your ordinary art museum. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it's very interesting nonetheless. The perfect venue for taking cute pictures for Instagram, both inside and outside the building.

Münsterhof, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

This is my favorite square in Zurich! It is beautiful and spacious and I love that there are benches where you can sit and lose track of time. The square has an artsy modern water fountain that makes for a great instagram photo. But also, don't forget to take a panoramic photo of the Fraumunster church and the historic old colorful buildings lining the edge of the square. Sometimes I come here with a coffee or snacks and just people watch. It has quite the calming feeling.

Hangar Bicocca is divided into 2 different parts: the first one hosts temporary exhibitions (generally for 1 month or 2, then they changes), the second one with a permanent area with I Sette Palazzi Celesti (or Kiefer's tower), 7 cement towers between 14 and 18 meters high: crazy but absolutely inspirational.

P-hus Lüders på Helsinkigade, Helsinkigade 30, 2150 Nordhavn, Denmark
Save it
Located, in the fast-growing harbour district Nordhavn, Lüders is a new addition to urban development. It's basically a parking lot with a red recreational and training area in 24m height. You reach the top by speeding up the stairs on the side of the building. Highly instagrammable!

Freeman Alley, New York, NY 10002
Save it
At the end of an unassuming alley, you'll find a two-story restaurant with an eclectic cabin decor, a hip crowd, and delicious food. On weekends it is quiet the scene and a great place to see and be seen. Weekday Lunch is my favorite time. It's quiet, you can bring the kids (although not many people do), and catch up with friends. I highly recommend the carrot pancakes.

This translates to “loved traditions” and is a super cool café / restaurant with a classic 50’s decor. It’s known for it’s amazing waffles (very Instagram-friendly!) and the prices aren’t too bad. Such a unique space!
