My Berlin hotspot-page is one that is in continuous alteration, but even I don’t really get to it to add every single new favourite place, let alone expecting you checking it our every other day to see if there is something new. So, I’ve decided I would share updates, aka my current favourites, in a blogpost every once in a while. This is part one, including Ungeheuer, Facciola and Khwan!
Shortly after Scot joined our home, we found out that he was a big fan of the wind. The Sundays we spent at Tempelhof were his favourite, with his nose high up in the air and his ears flapping in the wind (like the dog in the Neverending Story), he ran around for hours. That was actually all we needed, to decide that we’d take him to the beach. And when you’re living in Berlin, the beach almost equals the island Rügen.
I believe I’ve been bragging about the Rila Monastery and our roadtrip since my first post written about Sofia. And finally: here it is! The Rila Monastery is one of the most photographed places near Sofia and we didn’t want to miss it for the world. Because we had some other day trips planned, we decided to rent a car for two days. This way we couldn’t only see the Rila Monastery but also the amazing countryside in between, which took us to the most photogenic junk yard e-ver!
Maybe you’ve seen some snapshots on Twitter or Instagram already, but this weekend I was abducted by Joppe. As a total surprise he took me to the Sächsische Schweiz! This national park was on top of my Germany-wishlist for a long time and to be taken there during wintertime seemed the perfect moment. The falling snow made the impressive mountains even more extraordinary and my camera was my best travelbuddy this weekend. Please join me while I take you along.
Did you know that you can find the most amazing street art in Sofia? Of course there is the necessary amount in the city centre but in the north-east, a little outside the main centre, you’ll find the real masterpieces.
The quarter Hazdhi Dimitar exists mostly of sad, grey high rises and was, because of that, chosen as location for the Urban Creature Festival in 2011. During this festival a lot of these high rises were transformed into blank canvases and international and local artists were asked to display their art.
