Walking the streets of Berlin you may have noticed Cherry trees here and there. Especially during spring time, when the cherry trees begin to blossom, one may be left puzzled why there are so many cherry trees, and why they seem to be planted in rather distinct places. The answer is quite simple: most of […]
In the Summer taking a walk on Tempelhofer Feld is not really my thing. You can’t really hide from the sun – and at least for my taste there is just a bit too much going on. And that is a good thing – but I prefer my walks to be a bit more relaxed. […]
Yes, weather can be nice in March – sometimes. Last Monday it was sunny. And I had the opportunity to go ‘shopping’ in Mitte.
