Miss A Columnist

Adrienne Erin is an artist turned freelance writer who studied studio art and animation in a tiny town in central Ohio, but has worked in fields as diverse as career development, design, and public relations since. Now she resides in central Pennsylvania, but she takes the train or hops behind the wheel to visit nearby Philadelphia often. She blogs and ghost writes for a number of sites, but you can find some of her work on her personal blog, Pongra.

Her love of travel was ignited by her time spent studying art abroad in Paris, France. Since then, her travels have taken her across France, as far as the Czech Republic, and even to the site of the Chernobyl accident, not to mention more than a dozen US states. She is an avid road tripper, and has loved long distance driving since she first got behind the wheel of her car.

When she’s not on the go, she loves cooking, collage, and obsessing over vintage postcards. She frequently participates in mail exchanges and loves Skyping in French with her faraway friends. Please follow her on Twitter at @adrienneerin.

New Year’s Eve 2014 In Berlin, Germany To Benefit Underdeveloped Nations

Everyone knows that Germans love beer and parties, making Berlin a great spot to ring in the New Year. To add to the vibrant night-life this city already has, New Year’s Eve magnifies it to a larger-than-life scale. Enjoy an outdoor party in front of the Brandenburg Gate with live music, performances and fireworks at midnight.

If one of your resolutions for the New Year is to be a healthier and better person, consider doing the “pancake run” or “Pfannkuchenlauf” on New Year’s Eve. Expect crazy costumes from the runners and treats at the finish line to sweeten the deal. The 38th Berlin New Year’s Run, a 5k through the Grunewald forest, will coach you to feel less guilty about your consumption later in the evening and make you feel good about yourself. Sometimes nicknamed the “jelly donut run,” runners will receive a donut upon completion of the circuit. One of this event’s sponsors, Adidas, donates thousands of shoes yearly to underdeveloped countries. Lacing up your sneakers never felt so good.
