A Relaxing Weekend!

The first weekend in 2016 I spent in Hamburg. It was a relaxing one… with a lot of food – a wine tasting, pizza & a wonderful cooking course at the Hamburger Kochsalon! A lot of energy for the following working days!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Stay relaxed and eat well!

Do You Smell the Fall Air?

I spent another weekend in this fantastic new hometown of mine. Fall is everywhere right now: The streets are golden, the river Elbe twinkles in the yellow sunlight and I have a strong craving for a hot cup of tea (or coffee). Oh, what a beautiful Hamburg season!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Take a deep breath and enjoy the fall air :)!

Colorful Autumn Days in Hamburg!

HH2All pics by Franzi.

I spent this Hamburg weekend with some friends from Osnabrück and their little son. I went into a musical preview (quite ok, but not a must-see), enjoyed the autumn colors on long walks and discovered a bit of Altona’s history. Alltogether, a perfect autumn weekend!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – enjoy the colors!

HH1Those days my bike has a pretty colorful parking space!

HH4The “Niendorfer Gehege“, where I went with my pal Inka and her son (who was sleeping until we were home again).

HH3Don’t worry: We didn’t eat the mushrooms ;)!

HH5A certain mister bought me an anchor button from a button machine!

HH6Sunday we made a walk in Altona (described in this book I am currently reading in my literature club) with a short break at Eier Carl.

What I Think About When I Think About … BERLIN!

BerlinPic by Franzi.

Today I came back from the city I’m born in, the city I grew up: Berlin. I never really wrote about my feelings in regard to this city. The reason is simple: It’s an ambivalent topic for me. This feels somehow strange because everyone loves his or her hometown. And so do I: I’m raised in Köpenick and spent the biggest part of my childhood and adolescence in Friedrichshagen – a district in Berlin I love more than any other place in the world. Because that’s where I came from, because it’s where I feel save. But Berlin is more than this little piece of heaven in its eastern part.

Berlin for once is biiiig. If I call a friend and tell her that I will be on my way to meet her immediately… than two (!) hours later I will be there finally. In between the cool kids in the U-Bahn (tube) are behaving like I would be the tourist and Berlin belongs only to the hipsters. Thank god I am also a fan of totes – at least they didn’t realize that I am not on my way to hang out with other cool kids in Friedrichshain. Second, some places in Berlin really smell – dog poo, garbage, pee. The odour of a big city. Some places also don’t feel very safe. You get used to strange people, to poor people, to aggressive looking people. ….Those are the low sides.

But one thing is clear: I do love Berlin:

* It’s colorful mix of people, its tons of creative power: Where else do you find as many artists or entrepreneurs as in Berlin?

* Its cultural life! Every day offers new possibilities in Berlin: New exhibitions or fairs or parties, new interesting people to meet, new chances to develop new ideas.

* I do love Berlin for even more: For its architecture, its traffic system, its culture and also for its rough  and unique character…

I just don’t know if I would love to live there someday again. My family and friends are good arguments, but I’m still not ready to conquer this city every day. Maybe the day will come again. I guess there’s hope …and meanwhile I’m enjoying myself a while longer in my comfort zone, good old Osnabrück 🙂

I wish you a wonderful start into the new week. May it be an inspirational one!

And here is the BERLIN song: Schwarz zu Blau by Peter Fox.

Happy B-Day Isa! Have a great one in a great city with an even greater guy.
