How to Handle a Heatwave

June 9, 2014

Since Saturday, Berlin has been experiencing a heatwave, with temperatures of around 35C each day, which is forecast to last until at least tomorrow. It’s been too hot to think, let alone blog. We spent the mornings at our local open air swimming pool – a very popular summer past time in Germany – but by noon it got too overcrowded. Instead, we sought refuge this afternoon in the shady gardens of the Jewish Museum Berlin. Under a breezy canopy of leafy trees with a […]

Autumn is definitely on its way. Of course, afternoon tea was on the agenda too – the birds, which often fly from outside in to the glass courtyard, were being very forward in trying to steal cake. I felt a bit like I was in a Hitchcock movie!  And […]

A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to “Foto Frage Freitag” – an online project where Steffi from the German blog Ohhhmhhh poses 5 questions each Friday, to which anyone can then respond through photographs.

After lounging in the museum deckchairs […]
