12 hrs

i really love the idea behind 12 hrs, a new travel site launched by The Locals photographer Søren Jepsen and writer Anna Peuckert. much like my own city guide to Cape Town, they aim to give you tips “that aren’t about money, but about great discoveries from all around the world.” i wish i could have had their guide to Copenhagen handy when i visited there in 2007, now guess i can add another reason to go again.

We love to travel. We also love design, and music, and fashion. And we were missing a website full of travel tips for people like us. Somewhere between the backpackers and the luxury hotels. To keep it simple, we organized them in itineraries. 12 hours per trip. Sweet and short. With the best to see, do, eat, dance we could fit in one short stay.

  1. Just discovered this site a little bit ago as well – I’m often moving around for work and only have a few hours somewhere so its’ great for ideas on what to see and do when you have a pocket of time before a flight!

  2. Really nice photographs, great travel blog and I recognise a lot of Antwerp (be) in it :)

    loved the site and the idea. But loved even more her glasses.

    By any chance, do you know here they are from?

    many thanks

  4. This is SO RAD. I’m heading to Portland in a few weeks, so I’m really excited to see that the Portland guide is coming May 6th!! I love that they give you lots of great ideas, yet it’s entirely succinct at the same time…


  5. Once again, thank you SO much for featuring us! You have one of our favorite websites, it’s really an honor!

  6. Thank you for this site! Such fun and I like the 12hours- reminds me of favorite Luxe guides for quick city trips. For a totally different lifestyle version of a new travel site please check out the (also) just launched last week Tiny Atlas Quarterly.

    I hope you like it!

  7. Love 12 hrs and love you guys. Your site is gorgeous, from the photographs to the typography. This maybe the inspiration I need to start my own blog about Bali. Thanks!
