Chillin’ at Mauerpark

A strange and lovely day. Broke out the bike and headed for the Mauerpark flea market with big visions of a DIY project I spotted on Pinterest this morning. Homemade lampshades from upcycled materials like old photo slides and vintage lampshade wireframes. Unfortunately I didn’t find what I was looking for, and had to hide […]

Urgent Veterinary Care and Pet Emergencies in Berlin

Being an expat and not speaking German can be extremely frustrating when your pet becomes sick or injured and needs urgent care. Who can help? Where can we go? Can they come to my pet? And a question that you don’t want to think about but must anyway, how much does it cost? My beloved […]

Best of Berlin Blogs: Roundup Feb 2013

During January I took a respite from my online life and as such got a big behind (oops…haha…typo..ummm…well maybe that too with all the EATING), I mean a BIT behind on reading all the awesome blogs out there about Berlin.

The Best Of Berlin’s Street Art Photos And Videos

One of the things I love the most about Berlin is the street art.  The expression of rebellious individuality and free-thinking is the very character of Berlin, and it’s graffiti is the badge it proudly wears.  With a glance around at any corner, I feel the energy and inspiration bubbling through the cobbled streets, in […]

On Public Nudity

So, I am not some kind of nudity freak, but you might at first have a different impression once you realize I have more than one blog post about the subject.  I am still shocked and embarrassed every summer at the plethora of tits and ass and even the Full Monty blatantly frolicking in Tiergarten.  […]

Getting Naked With The Doctor

My first visit to a physician in Europe…a simple physical required by my company to start employment.  Totally routine, no problem!  I was called from the small waiting room into the back, and was a bit surprised to see that I was in an actual office.  The office of the doctor, with a desk and […]

Tongue Twisting German

Foreigners to Germany attempting to speak the language are a great source of amusement for the locals – trust me, I know this for a fact. Even after one makes it past the first 2 years of monotonous-machine-gun-rat-a-tat-tat and is able to discern that there are actually spaces between words here and there, the venture […]
