Staying in Park Hyatt Hamburg

Last weekend, me and Alex went to Hamburg to shoot some collaborations for me and some models for him. We’ve been in the lucky position to stay in the Park Hyatt Hamburg. A real high class 5 star luxury hotel, which is located near the central station and in between the shopping area. The hotel is the perfect starting point for all activities you’ve planned in Hamburg.

When you’re entering the hotel you will be welcomed of all the staff of the hotel so friendly and courteous that you already feel overwhelmed before you’ve even seen your room. I was impressed by the look of the lobby which is equipped with a dark wooden floor like you know it of old villas.

After checking-in we went to our room, which was fantastic. We stayed in a Junior Suite with an entrance area, balcony, two Queen Size beds and a perfect bathroom with a shower and a bathtub. We were welcomed with smooth music which was played in the suite.
But I think you can write everything about a hotel room but nothing gives you a better impression than some pictures.

Unfortunately we haven’t been lucky with the weather. It was stormy, cold and rainy. So after a long day outside taking pictures we were so happy to have the possibility to go to the spa area of The Park Hyatt Hamburg. First I tried out the gym which is better equipped than any other hotel gym I’ve ever been to.
After sweating in the gym I was ready for the pool and whirlpool. Due to privacy of other guests I wasn’t able to take pictures here but I can tell you, that it’s awesome. Next to the pool there’s also a sauna area with several saunas and steam baths. Sauna is too hot for me, so I tried out the steam baths with special aroma therapies.
Yep! That I enjoyed it very much.

After our stay in the Park Hyatt Hamburg I can highly recommend the hotel to everybody who doesn’t just want to sleep in the hotel. The Park Hyatt Hamburg invites you to so much more. Like working, and not just in your room but also in the lobby or in the restaurant. When you need a time-out for a weekend the Park Hyatt Hamburg is also the perfect address, due to the huge spa area. But it’s also the perfect spot to explore the city.
All in all the
Park Hyatt Hamburg is a perfect spot to stay.
Thanks to everybody who made this trip possible.

Celebrate your father with the perfect present - James Bond 007 Cologne

Father's day is coming up. Time to thank your father for all the things you learned from him. Maybe you also thank him for all the mistakes you made when he wasn't that angry you expected, or for the advices he gave to you for not making these mistakes again. A good father, who's always there for you is not self-evident, that's why you could be so thankful to have such a  father by your side. 

In my case my father was the guy who taught me all the things my mum was afraid of teaching me. He taught me the essential things in life every kid should learn in his life. 
Well it's a long time ago but I can remember the days I went swimming with my father. Ok, I was the guy who sat at the edge of the pool or the kid who splashed around in the water, I can't remember why but I didn't like the water. But one day my father made me go into the water and taught me swimming. Since then I love swimming and diving. That's just one example of many my father taught me. 
Since I moved out I'm so glad to have a father like mine. He's always the right person to call when there are any issues at my apartment. He has always the right advice to handle the situation right. And there are many situations I have no idea how to fix things.   

Thats why I want to say thank you to my father. 

In view of this occasion I have the perfect present for you guys out there. The new James Bond 007 Cologne. This scent is really light. It's the perfect fragrance fo the upcoming summer and the perfect present for your father. James Bond 007 Cologne is inspired by James Bond, his self confidence and his style. The cologne is modern-masculine. 
For every dad who likes fresh and masculine fragrances the James Bond 007 Cologne is the perfect scent to give the daily morning routine it's special elegance. 
So try out this summer fragrance by James Bond 007 and surprise your father here.  

Garmin Virb 360°

I had the pleasure to test the 360° cam by Garmin, named Virb360°. First I want to say, that this video should have get uploaded already in the mid of december. But I wasn't lucky. Everytime I wanted to go skiing the weather was really bad. Snow all day long, that kind of weather is not the best to test an action cam, just because I wanted to show you the best result.
In the first week of January I was finally lucky and could test the camera with best mountain weather. It's always really nice to be back in the mountains when it's sunny. 

 

The Garmin Virb360° is not complicated to operate. With your phone you are able to control the whole camera, set the settings, adjust the right angle. You can choose between 180° camera, 360° camera or taking pictures. In my case I wanted to try the 360° angle. The camera is able to record 4k videos for best entertainment. Due to a switch at the side of the Virb360° you can turn on and witch off record mode with your gloves. It's not even necessary to take of your gloves to turn on the camera and set the settings on the camera thanks to the large buttons on the camera. 

The biggest problem I had was editing the videos. The Garmin camera comes with it's own editing program. It's easy to understand at the first sight but has it's problems when you start editing. For easy videos no problem but to edit a video with cuts and slomotions which should fit the music is really complicated and trying on my opinion. 

Right here you'll find my results of the day with the Garmin Virb360°
Enjoy the 360° experience. My advice, watch the first video with your smartphone. There you can enjoy the 360° at it's best.

For me a small café in a big city is the best place to work. Just because you get inspired by so many people while you are texting on your new blog entry.

JBL PULSE 3

"The JBL PULSE 3 lifts music to a new level". 

My personal story with the new Pulse 3 begins in Paris. I was one of the lucky ones who had the chance to get invited by Harman, the headbrand of JBL, to the launch event of the new Pulse 3 in Paris. The event was a blast. In every corner of the location have been standing the Pulse 3 speakers, just connected to one device. As you can see in the second picture on the right side as well in a aquarium. Since then I can't imagine how I heard music before the Pulse 3.

The Pulse 3 is an all-round talent which lifts music to the next level. While testing the Pulse 3 I recognized that the speaker is as good as a regular sound system. You have an enormous bass and a 360° sound range. The volume is great. You can fill your whole apartment with your favorite songs just with one speaker. If thats not enough and you want to hear music outside too you can connect any other JBL speakers together with the "JBL Connect App" to have the best sound everywhere you want. Also perfect for every Party is the light system of the Pulse 3. The LED-lightshow is perfect for every Party and replaces every other light system. Due to the "Connect App" you are able to change the lights individually to create your own atmosphere at your party. 

When I tried out the speaker under water for the first time I was afraid what happens. Well now I'm able to say, nothing happens. The music is still playing as well as the light show. This is my absolutely favorite feature of the Pulse 3. It's water- and dustproof. No more thoughts about protecting your speaker at the beach or in the shower. Even calling people during the shower is possible. The Pulse 3 is equipped with Siri, Google Now and microphones with noise-cancelling for call phones in perfect quality. 

To sum all the features and highlight of the JBL Pulse 3 up you can say the speaker is a perfect alternative to every conventional sound system. It's smaller and lighter, you have perfect sound and bass quality as well as a LED-light show. The speaker is connected via bluetooth to your device what makes it possible to hear music everywhere in every situation. All this up to 12 hours. 
The JBL Pulse 3 is available in Europe since August 2017 and costs around 249€.
