Tour de France 1987 in West Berlin


In the summer of 1987, just 2 months after the now famous May Day Riots, the enclosed city of West Berlin, that sat in the middle of East Germany hundreds of kilometers away the French border, played the obvious host to the opening stages of the 74th Tour de

Berlin Getaways: Iceland Part 2

Posted on by admin Posted in Europe, Travel | Leave a comment

As Iceland is such an amazing photogenic holiday destination, one Berlin Getaways post simply doesn’t suffice. Berlin Getaways: Iceland Part 1 took in the first day of my journey from the capital Reykjavík, around the Golden Circle and finished up at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall. In this post, I pick up from Skógafoss and lead you further along the coast, taking in the gorgeous scenery along the way, as far as the fishing town of Höfn.

Best Food in Berlin: Dudes Delikatessen

Posted on by admin Posted in Burgers, Eat, Other | Leave a comment

In the year 2014 pulled meat sandwiches had a rise to fame in some restaurants, but more so at some of the street food markets that popped up around Berlin. Big Stuff Smoked BBQ may well be responsible for kick starting this trend, that has spawned places like Pignut BBQ, but if you’re looking to keep ahead of the game and try one of the newest, and one best in my opinion, pulled meat joints in town, I highly recommend Dudes Delikatessen.

Let’s get straight to the point. If you like good authentic American food that gets served up in typical American sized portions, unlike those “street food” market portions that barely hit the sides, put on your stretchy pants and head straight to MJ’s Foodshop in Neukoelln.

Berlin Summer 2015: Haubentaucher Urban Pool & Events Space

Posted on by admin Posted in Bars, Clubs, Drink, Learn, Read, Street Art | Leave a comment

In the summer 2013 it was the rooftop bar of Klunkerkranich and the beginning of street food craze at Bite Club. In 2014 the street food trend continued at the super popular Neue Heimat. But what will be the trend location for summer 2015 where hip Berliners can stand in long lines, pay inflated prices and be seen? Like with Klunkerkranich in 2013, Mogli Oak Berlin has a pretty solid prediction.

I’m Hungover and Bored Sundays: Do Communists Have Better Sex?

Posted on by admin Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

The Cold War was a time of competition. Capitalism Vs Communism. For the players on each side, they both wanted to show the other, and the rest of the world, that their system was indeed the superior one. This competition had many elements related to things like military, economy, power, freedoms and growth. Then there were oddities like sporting success and the space race. But competitions existed elsewhere, away from the governments and systems eyes, in the bedrooms of the people themselves. The following documentary ‘Do Communists Have Better Sex‘ sheds a little light on which systems flag rose best in a bedroom situation.

Posted on by admin Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Everybody knows of the Lichtgrenze and today’s celebratory concert featuring Paul Kalkbrenner at Brandenburger Tor, but there are a million other ways to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of The Berlin Wall. Here are 5 alternative ways to celebrate.

1. Eat Bananas… with the skin on!

Everyone has heard the joke/(story?) of how when East Germans came across to the West for the first time, people offered them bananas and because they had never eaten one before, they started eating them with the skin on! Well, why not reminisce today and see if it tastes any good!
