A little medieval town called Quedlinburg – part I

IMG_8209

Hey guys, how are you doing?! Over here everything is pretty chaotic because of our renovation, it started last week on Tuesday, and it’s not going on everyday, but I hope that it will be done soon. I said on the last post that I would like to move the wardrobe from the living room to the bedroom, but I think that for now that will not happen, the wardrobe belongs to the apartment, and I think that it’s not very new, lately it hasn’t been so steady, so I guess that if we try to move it, it will brake. We already wanted to buy a new and bigger one for us, but it will take time, because these things are not cheap! Even though I am a little frustrated because of that, I’m trying to remain positive, and be happy that the apartment will look much better after the renovation! I’m taking pictures of every step to share on the blog 🙂

But besides that, I’m here today to share a few pictures from our little one day trip to the medieval town, Quedlinburg, that we did in December (it’s been a while, I know…haha). Truth be told, it wasn’t our idea to go there, we’ve never heard of it before my mother-in-law told us on her visit that she wanted to go there, and I’m glad that she did!

Golden Berlin – Part II

Hello, people!!

Wherever you are, hope you are having a great day!

I was supposed to post this last week, but Rafael got sick and I’ve never made so much chicken soup in my life..hahaha (I’m going to blame it on his sickness instead of my procrastination :s ). Last week got pretty cold here in Berlin, like -3 degrees Celsius, I wish that I could say it snowed as well, but it didn’t 😦 Snow, please come soon! I’m already listening to Christmas playlists on Spotify…haha We are pretty anxious for Christmas this year, because now we can buy Christmas decorations for the apartment, different than last year, because we didn’t know if we where going to stay in Germany or not, but we did, HOORAY!! And I can’t wait to go to the Christmas markets, drink Glühwein and eat local food, and maybe buy some Christmas ornaments for the tree. Things are going to be busy around here next month, we are expecting friends and family, so basically we are saving money to buy some things for the apartment and to enjoy the city when they will be here.

Happy November!!!

I am a little bit skeptic that today is the 1st of November, and that Christmas is already around the corner…2016 you are flying right pass me 😮

One thing that I really love about Berlin is the amount of trees in this city, it’s so green, and now also red, yellow and even gold…

Funkhaus Berlin

IMG_7677

Three Sundays ago, Rafael and I went to an open air event hosted by Bite Club at Funkhaus, as you can see here. We went of course, for the food, and also for the Funkhaus tour. Before that, I had never heard about this place, so I looked it up and found out that is was East Germany’s central radio station, we got pretty curious after that, and couldn’t wait to see it!

Bite Club BBQ

IMG_7741

As I said before, Berlin is full of fun events now in the Summer, it’s hard to choose one…but I usually go to the ones where food is involved…hahaha On Sunday, Bite Club was hosting a barbecue event at Funkhaus Berlin, an old radio broadcasting building from the GDR period. I’m going to write a special post about this amazing building, because there was a tour and Rafa took some amazing pictures of it! The location was a little far from our apartment, and the weather was not as its best…around 20 degrees celsius with a little bit of sun, clouds and windy…but I decided to embrace the “Summer day” and wear shorts! Of course I felt chilly the moment I stepped on the street, but I was trusting on the sun…it did come out a few times, kept me warm while we were sitting besides the Spree river. When we decided to come home, it was already cloudy, and as soon as we got home, it poured, we were lucky!

Around Berlin

Happy Monday, friends!

We had a really nice weekend over here, hope you had a good one as well! We enjoyed the nice weather on Saturday to walk around our neighbourhood and visit a little street market. Berlin in the spring is full of things to do on the weekend, which is tough to choose, but no matter what, you always end up having a good time anywhere.

A Little Bit of Moabit

IMG_7399

Happy Monday, friends!!

We’ve been staying for almost a month now in a friends apartment in the neighbourhood of Moabit here in Berlin. Our apartment was rented until May 15th since we didn’t know when we were coming back. Luckily, our landlord decided to rent it for us again, so we are moving back to Neukölln this weekend. It’s been very interesting to know a “new” neighbourhood, Moabit is much more quiet than Neukölln, more like a family place. Today, everybody wants to live in Neukölln, its become kinda of a hipster neighbourhood, with a lot of young people, bars and countless places to eat. I like to live in Neukölln because Tempelhofer Feld is basically my backyard, but in a near future I wouldn’t mind moving to a calmer place…let’s face it, we are not that young and we don’t party all the time…hahahha
