Stockholm (by Lars Linderoth)

In the last few years quite a few of our Spotters were interviewed for National Geographic’s cool “I heart my city” series on its Intelligent Travel blog.

Here are a few quotes from a few of the latest interviews:

Stockholm Spotter Lars

Stockholm Spotter Lars: “If there’s one thing you should know about getting around my city, it’s that the best way to explore Stockholm is by bike (there are rentals available at scores of stations all over town). In the winter you are stuck with the subway, but that is also quite nice (and a feast for the senses; the city’s metro has been likened to an art exhibit).”

Tirana Spotter Matilda: “Locals know to skip expensive, fancy places like Pepper Lounge and Tao Lounge Tirana and check out cool places like Nouvelle Vague, Unlimited Soul Cafè, and Radio Bar instead.”

Amsterdam Spotter Shawn

Amsterdam Spotter Shawn: “Summer is the best time to visit my city because Amsterdam has its own beach and outdoor swimming pool, stunning parks, happy people, and ice-cold IJwit beer from a local brewery. What’s not to love?”

Dublin Spotter Claudia: “Locals know to skip the Temple Bar area at night and check out South William Street, located a few blocks away, instead.”

Vancouver (by Pamela Olmstead)

Vancouver Spotter Pamela: “When someone comes to visit me, the first place I take them to is under the Granville Street Bridge on Granville Island. The island used to be an industrial area, but now the warehouses and factories have become galleries, studios, and artisan food shops. Visit the public market to grab something to eat, be entertained by street performers, and take in the great view of Vancouver over False Creek.”

Istanbul Spotter Sevcan: “The Bosphorus Cross-Continental Swimming Race could only happen in my city. Each July, thousands of athletes from Turkey and well beyond get together in Istanbul to cross from the Asian to the European side of the Bosphorus to experience the strait’s exquisite beauty.”
