About me

Teachmewhatever is a lifestyle blog founded by Kay Snels. In 2014, I packed my bags and went on a solo trip through Europe in which I asked random strangers to share their knowledge about a certain topic with me, and I’ve been living the “teachmewhatever” lifestyle ever since. I hope to inspire others by sharing my own…

1 year of everything.

This week marks one year of everything. One year living in the beautiful city of San Francisco. One year of living on my own… with amazing room mates. One year of learning tons at my first job. Exactly one year ago, I tried to fit “my whole life” into two bags, and took off to California. Turns out…

Switch between Instagram accounts.

I’m really excited to announce that Instagram now makes it possible to switch between your accounts, without having to log out one account, fill out your credentials, and log back in with another account. Exciting, right?

London.

Being away from home for a long time, I decided to treat my mom and I to a fun trip to London. Here’s a snapshot of what we did:    

Favorite spots in Europe

Barcelona To do: Don’t get on those ridiculous segways. Ever. Instead rent some Green Bikes which are way cheaper than any other bikes in the city. Only €10 /day! Shop at: A small boutique called “1er Acto” @ Carrer Avinyó and a rather unknown but huge Mango Outlet @ Carrer de Girona. Eat at: tapas bar Champañeria Can Paixano @ Carrer de la Reina Christina if…

Travel pro tips

On the very first day of #teachmewhatever I flew from Brussels to Lisbon. Up in the air, I started talking with a couple of solo travelers. Having a good feeling, I went straight to their house to join them for…

Launch iPhone 6 at Apple store in San Francisco

Talk about being spontaneous! After a nice interview with a start-up, I was walking around the Financial district and decided to check out the line at the Apple store. Around 200 people were waiting for their  new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Not only customers, but also companies are definitely taking advantage of this once-in-a-year opportunity….

Storytelling pictures (+SEO interview)

@teachmewhatever I'm gonna be in San Francisco (SOMA) tomorrow around noon, and I could teach you how to tell stories with photos. — William Sanchez (@williamsanchez_) September 10, 2014 Unexpected and random, just how I like it. One hour later I met William who was a fun-loving guy but mainly a deeply passionate (wedding) photographer. “It’s not about…
