“London is a city of opportunities! It gives back as much as you are willing to give.

And that only seems fair…”

Best wishes from London is the latest addition to our story collection of creative city chapters! From now on, photographer Ola O Smit will capture the city’s creative spirit as our London editor by meeting creatives at their favorite places in the city. Read the first story by owner of ‘Kana’ ceramics Ana Kerin who reflects on her relationship with her city-of-choice.

“I do love cycling over the bridges at night with all the lights shining over the water of the canals.”

With Best wishes from Amsterdam, we already welcome our 3rd member to the story collection of creative city chapters – Amsterdam editor Laura Sanz Arribas will guide you through this inspiring and aspiring city, regaining its vibe with more and more creatives making this city their home. Have a look at one of the first stories by illustrator Valesca van Waveren!

“Yes Oslo may have its bad days, but season after season the city lives for the moment, cherishing these changes.”

As one of many more city chapters to come, we launched Best wishes from Oslo last week! From now on, our Oslo editor Lene Haugerud will show us around by collecting the self-written stories of creatives – starting with the story by Rebecca Hawkes, photographer & graphic designer!

What a wonderful year for Best Wishes Magazine – when spring was in full bloom, it all began with Best wishes from Berlin. By now, there are already around 25 stories on the site to capture the city’s creative spirit:

from opening pop-up backery Gourmandise Berlin and launching Flaneur Magazine by Ricarda Messner to Kiezoper and betahaus, from American Katherine Sacks and Danish Karen Sofie Egebo who made Berlin their new home to bloggers like Marta Greber of ‘What should I eat for breakfast today?’ and James Glazebrook of ‘Überlin’ – “we write to taste life twice” said Anaïs Nin once and we couldn’t agree more.

We drank a lot of coffee at The Barn and Aunt Benny, visited Tempelhof as well as Prinzessinengarten, drove outside the city to airport Berlin-Tegel one early morning and discovered the old Berlin by meeting at Karl-Marx-Allee and Gendarmenmarkt.

We couldn’t be happier about all the enthusiasm and feedback we received over the last few months and here’s to a happy 2014 with more inspiring stories and city chapters to come!

If you haven’t already followed the instagram countdown until Christmas, there are already 5 more cities to add to the story collection like Best wishes from Amsterdam, Oslo, Minneapolis, London and Melbourne – so stay tuned, stay curious and get inspired for your own creative ideas to blossom in this coming year – best wishes to all of you!
