Landwehr Canal

The heat had reached 30° so the last thing I wanted to do was stay couped up inside all day. Our roommate had told me about a nearby canal that was perfect to visit in the summer. You can sit on the bank while the swans pass by and the occasional dingy full of drunk […]

A Day in Charlottenburg

As it started to get ever so slightly warmer, I decided to take a trip to Charlottenburg – somewhere I haven’t been since we came to Berlin in 2015.

Thankfully, it was on the way to the office so I left Jordan halfway after wishing him luck and crossing all of […]

Berlin’s Diverse Districts

During our first few nights in Berlin, we stayed in the busy centre of the city. Our first hotel was the Novum Select Checkpoint Charlie and was located in Kreuzberg, just outside of Mitte. For those of you that don’t already know, Berlin is split up into separate districts that are all made popular for different […]
