Apart from visiting all iconic sights and memorials in Berlin, which you can read about here, of course, I had to visit all the great coffee shops in the capital, as well. Being the prepared coffee nerd that I am, I made a list of all the coffee shops I wanted to visit and also … Continue reading A Trip to Berlin, Part Two: Coffee & Stationery.
Last week I went to Berlin for a few days! Although Hamburg is really close to our capital (it's only a 3-hour bus ride away), I don't go there very often... The last time I visited was for New Years Eve 2013/2014, so that's a little while ago. But as my boyfriend visited me in … Continue reading A Trip to Berlin, Part One: History.
Even though in the last two weeks my blog has been a little quiet, I don't want to miss out on the Weekly Photo Challenge! I also promise to write some personal posts soon, I've got a few ideas already. This week's theme is seasons, either related to the weather or to our current season … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons.
It's already Thursday night and I still haven't posted a photo for this weeks' photography challenge. And this is simply because this week, I somehow didn't find any inspiration for the prompt... Inspired by this quote, the prompt was to find any kind of artwork and replicate it some way; “Life imitates art far more … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Imitates Art.
So much for three consecutive days. I was supposed to post this quote yesterday, but when inspiration simply isn't kicking in, you just can't force it. So I let the challenge rest yesterday and hoped for a better mood today. My last quote is from A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by … Continue reading Three Day Quote Challenge: Day 3.
This week's topic is Time, so I decided to take a photo of the moment before I open up the coffee shop I work at. The morning shift starts at 7:15 am and the shop opens at 8 am, so when I prepare everything and get ready to open up the shop, I love to … Continue reading Weekly Poto Challenge: Time.
'... we require certain skill'. Even though the song Young Blood by The Naked and The Famous came out 5 years ago already, I can still relate to it today. I was 20 when the song was released, and now I will be turning 25 soon. For me, Young Blood is about youth, not yet knowing where to … Continue reading We’re only young and naive still…
Of course, I am posting late. I was supposed to post the second quote yesterday, but as I left the house at 6:30 am and didn't come home until past 11 pm there really was no way I could fit this in. But better a little late than just giving up, right? Today's quote comes from … Continue reading Three Day Quote Challenge: Day 2.
Hello dear blogging community! I was nominated for the Three Day Quote Challenge, and as someone who is a big fan of books and literature, this sounds like the perfect task for me. I was already nominated some days ago by the lovely Spiritualjourney17, and now I received another nomination by mariemathilda. As life goes, … Continue reading Three Day Quote Challenge: Day 1.
I recently finished A Whole Life by Robert Seethaler. Written in simple yet enchanting prose, this short book kept me captivated for an entire Sunday night; I couldn't stop reading until I had finished it at 1 am. A Whole Life originally came out in German towards the end of 2014, but somehow I only heard about … Continue reading Book Review: A Whole Life.
