Descovering Desenzano del Garda

On the way to Desenzano, we changed over in Verona and everything went smoothly, which is unusual for me I didn't complain. The weather was glorious! On the first night, we just had a stroll along the lake and went for some pizza. When in Rome! (Well, north of Italy at least). On our first… Continue reading Descovering Desenzano del Garda


Austria, Italy and Switzerland

At the end of July, we jetted off (well, on a train) to various locations for our summer holidays. In total, we were actually only 10 days away, but due to us jumping from one place to another, it weirdly felt a lot longer. I've decided to write about each place in a separate blog… Continue reading Austria, Italy and Switzerland

What to do (and not to do) in Germany

I wrote a nice little post about them a few weeks ago which you can read here. But, what happens when… Continue reading A German’s first time in Britain

I'll write a more detailed post about the trip, so for now you get an overview through a random selection of photos. The first half of the… Continue reading July 2016 in pictures

May 2016 in pictures

May has been a really good month, possibly the best of the year so far. From walking around Leipzig half drunk, half hungover after my first German wedding, to sailing in the Netherlands and having some of my college friends visit. So it's this time of the month again - May 2016 in pictures! Enjoy!


Sailing in the Netherlands – Pfingsten 2016

Last weekend, I went sailing in the Netherlands with one of our authors, Susanne, who goes every year over Pfingsten (Pentecost). I'm compiled all the pictures below. There were 13 of us altogether and I was very excited as it was the first ever trip to the Netherlands (I probably drove through or something at… Continue reading Sailing in the Netherlands – Pfingsten 2016
