Life Lately :: Cooking Up a Storm with Ozeri

They say, ‘You’ll miss it when it’s gone,’ but it’s only when it’s gone that you start to rethink your ways. In this case, I’m talking about being healthy.  For the past week, I’ve been struck with a dreadful bug. I guess it was only a matter of time before it caught up with me. […] Read more…

BERLIN :: Olympiastadion

As this was my fourth time in Berlin, the boy decided that it was time to show me the historical delights of Berlin Olympiastadion. Famed as the home of the 1936 Olympics, the 2006 World Cup and the place where Usain Bolt broke the 100m and 200m world records in 2009, this was somewhere I was […] Read more…

Berlin Day Two :: Urban Exploration of The Abandoned Brewery

With the sweet taste of peanut butter bagels tempting us onto the streets of Berlin, we woke early on Monday to head to Aunt Benny, our favourite coffee bar in Berlin. Discovering it was closed, we headed central to Am Alexanderplatz for the next best thing…a Grillrunner! We chomped our hot dogs whilst deciding what […] Read more…
