Südpfalz treasures

HOME SWEET SÜDPFALZ. Spending holidays at home has almost become a beloved ritual of mine. One full week talking dialect, getting drunk at wine festivals and eating local asparagus. A ritual full of rituals. I love how easy-going people are at home, I even love…

Clearing the decks

IS THERE SOMETHING LIKE A CLEARANCE CRISIS? At least that’s what seems to be going on in my life: I am cleaning up. Not my apartment, not my desk, and nope, not my car either. It’s my head that needs a full-grown refurbishment. I guess 26…

Grey Berlin winter

PRETTY LATE, BUT IT’S HERE: SPRING TIME IN BERLIN. Winter in Berlin is six long months and a hundred shades of grey. Other than in the south of Germany, nobody wants to leave the house for some fresh air, when that air is colder than…

Two things only: Rice noodles & watermelon shake. At least once a week, my cravings for rice noodles get to my head. Not just any rice noodles, but the ones served at Chén Chè Teehaus in Rosenthaler Strasse. How great it is to work at an…

That kitchen in S-134

“Komune 134”. One of the best places on Instagram ever created. When I still lived in Munich, my apartment was right next to the river Isar. It was my very first very own apartment, and some of you might know: That is almost as special…
