I have traveled extensively around Europe and the world, but there has always been one country, that I have wanted to travel to for a long time, which was always thrown to the side as a holiday option mainly due to it being one of the most expensive countries in the world. However in recent years, thanks mainly to the economic crisis and new airline route competition, prices have become somewhat reasonable to get there and to also travel around. But word is out! So pack your bags now and head to the absolutely stunning country of Iceland!

Berlin Wonderland: Wild Years Revisited 1990-1996

Posted on by admin Posted in Featured Events, See, Weekend Tips, What's On Weekly | Leave a comment

Nostalgia is a common sentiment felt by many of us humans. For the people of Berlin, nostalgic thoughts seemingly consume peoples lives more than most others. But to be honest, there is a lot to be nostalgic about! Whether it be thoughts of the old wild West, the naughty nineties or even just simply 5 years ago, people have imagines of freedom, chaos and liveliness that they believe may never be seen again. However, physical images of the past often remain through photographs, and such images, of the chaotic few years post the fall of The Wall, are currently being displayed at Gestalten (Mitte) as part of the exhibition Berlin Wonderland: Wild Years Revisited 1990-1996.

After six years of living in Berlin, I finally managed to get myself over to the historical centre of Berlin to catch a glimpse of the aptly named Festival of Lights. I have honestly never bothered with it, as I thought it would be quite boring. But I must admit, it was actually quite nice. Below are a few photos I took at this years Festival of Lights 2014.

Best Food in Berlin: Zsa Zsa & Loui

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

I have had something on my mind of late. And that something, is big tasty deli sandwiches! I already have a couple of favourite sandwich spots around town, but the majority of them require a decent journey to get to, something that isn’t exactly wanted when your stomach is screaming out to be filled. However, recently I stumbled across the very trendy Zsa Zsa & Loui cafe in Neukoelln, which more than satisfied my desires for a decent sandwich close to home.

Best Burgers in Berlin: BurgerBar61

Posted on by admin Posted in Burgers, Eat | 1 Comment

With new burger joints seemingly opening up weekly in Berlin, it isn’t surprising that some of the new good ones slip through the cracks and don’t get the attention they deserve. One such place that the burger enthusiastic bloggers haven’t got a hold of yet, is the less than a year old and super un-hyped BurgerBar61.

Berlin Street Art #2

Some months ago now, I threw together a selection of photographs, that can be seen here, that I had recently taken for my other side project Berlin Street Art. Now it is time for round two, with a post that includes both new pieces on the streets and a couple of not so new pieces.

Bruce Springsteen: Rocking The Wall

Posted on by admin Posted in Learn, Read | Leave a comment

This November marks the 25th anniversary of the Fall of The Berlin Wall. 25 years on and there is still conjecture as to who actually brought down The Wall. Ronald Reagan‘s ‘tear down this wall’ speech may have had something to do with it. Maybe Mikhail Gorbachev and his political reforms are to be accredited for it. And then there is obviously Günter Schabowski and his botched travel restrictions-“immediately effective” media conference, which certainly must have had something to do with it. But a new (2013) book by Erik Kirschbaum suggests that there may have been someone else who helped bring down The Wall. That person being a very famous musician, who isn’t known as The Hoff, but rather, The Boss!

Surfing in the river Spree

Posted on by admin Posted in Learn, Read | 2 Comments

It was some time ago now that I heard about the optimistic plans of the Flussbad Berlin project that wishes transform part of the dirty, muddy and dubious looking river Spree into an inner-city swimming hole, like it was once before.

Although I do personally adore the plans, I’m sure the cash-strapped Berlin government doesn’t exactly have money to throw at such projects, although saying that, at the same time, that same cash-strapped city government is bidding for the 2024 Summer Olympics! Anyway… If you thought Flussbad Berlin’s idea was out there, check out what Germany’s neighbours are up to.
