Welcome to Fotostrasse

Here you will learn everything you need to know about us.

Fotostrasse is a travel blog focused on bringing cool people to different places. It’s written by 2 Brazilian friends living in Berlin surrounded by three crazy cats.

Fotostrasse started as a photography project by Marcela Faé and Felipe Tofani. Our idea was to inspire people from all over the world that live in Berlin and don’t really know the city.

Our idea was to mix our passion for photography together with the fact that, since we never lived in Berlin before, we needed to explore where we decided to call home.

We started everything with photo meetups, but Fotostrasse became more than just a photo meetup really fast after we started getting invitations to explore other cities and so we decided to transform the project into the travel blog you all know.

With our blog, we can document our trips and explorations around the world and share our experiences with our readers.

Our first blog trip started right after we started blogging. Umeå was our first destination but we didn’t stop there. Bari, Polignano A Mare, Castellana, Alberobello, Dresden, Poznan, Viena, Bratislava, Porvoo, Helsinki, Manila, Belo Horizonte, Tagbilaran, Panglao, Oslob, Baguio, São Paulo, Wroclaw, Cebu City…
