A dear friend of ours was going to get married in Morocco and we planned a neat little get away starting from Paris. Nix and I availed of the fantastic promo of Qatar and even if their country is having an international diplomatic scuffle, we managed to have a really great journey. In my humble opinion, I think that Qatar is really one of the... Continue Reading

I celebrated my birthday with a special dinner at Tim Raue in Berlin. I first heard about his restaurant while watching my favourite show on Netflix, Chef’s Table. The chef has always intrigued me, and since I was already heading to the city, I thought that it would be a great birthday treat. We found the restaurant easily, at the entrance of...

Berlin is home to more than 100 museums, each giving the visitor much insight and information on a multitude of interests. Nix and I share a love of design, and one such school of design that began in Berlin is BAU HAUS. Because of this, we were both very interested in visiting the Bau Haus museum. The Museum is actually very, very small and I... Continue Reading

One of the joys I always discover when I travel is how I love to ride a bicycle. Each time I get on one I tell myself that I would get myself a bike when I get home. However, I never do. In fact, as I write this, I think about how happy I was on a bicycle and how our trip to Berlin really became more enjoyable as we began riding. At around... Continue Reading

My Berlin sightseeing continues with a visit to the Parliament building of Germany, on top of which sits this fabulous cylindrical architectural wonder. Everyone is actually welcome to visit and climb up the top of the glass, metal and silver dome. All you have to do is to cue up early in the morning for a slot/ticket number and you're good to...

One of the things on top of my to do list on my trip to Berlin was to visit the Jewish Museum. https://www.jmberlin.de/en I was deeply interested in the culture as I actually know very little about it. I was also very interested on several levels to see the museum. First to understand more about what really occurred during the war and to also... Continue Reading

One of things that I have learned in all my travel is to be open to surprises and let the place discover you as much you discover the place. Such is the case when we discovered The Leberstern Bar and Einstein Café http://www.cafeeinstein.com/en/lebensstern-cocktailbar. We randomly walked in a really chic vintage home store and chatted up the... Continue Reading

Why is everyone so excited for me to head over to a department store? However after reading about it I knew that this was going to be a must visit. So Nix and I decided... Continue Reading

On our first full day in Berlin, I wanted to get a feeling of the city and get my bearings. The first thing I realized is that Berlin is really such a large city. The sidewalks are like our main streets and the main streets are like our Highways. The city spacing is very wide and although you can actually walk around it’s easier really to... Continue Reading
