Inspiration / Berlin

This is my 50’s post! I have over 50 followers! Yay, 4 months in the running and standing strong ;)…

Well, back to bloggin’
Only 3 more days untill we leave to visit Berlin. Although it is only 624km to Berlin I have never been there, but wanting for a whole lot of years. Not only is Berlin trending and full of interesting/inspirational people. This city has a history like no other city in the world.

As most of you know Berlin was the epicentrum during World War II and afterwards divided in West and East Berlin untill 1989. That is 50 years of differences, poor and rich, suppression and pure history.

Ofcourse, being Dutch I have been brougthup with stories about World War II and everything that changed after. Also first hand by my grandparents, who all live through this awfull time, but in school this was one of the main subjects during history lessons.

Logically, I need to be visiting the Holocaust Museum, checkpoint Charlie, what is left of the Berlin wall and so on…but today I want to share with you some trendy spots in Berlin which are on my list to visit. I put together a day programme, all credits go to Petite Passport.

Lunch: Aunt Benny
No words needed

Shopping: Voo
Industrial interiour combined with fashion in the Kreuzberg district

Dinner: Dudu

Sleeping: Plus One
Sleep here and get a guided tour by a local for free (choose from 28 locals)

Have you been to Berlin? Any good tips?

What’s new / Utrecht

Last Friday I went shopping in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Here are some impressions of this beautiful city in the center of Holland. Unfortunately, the weather was extremely bad in the morning so the photo’s turn out a little dark. I will show you some of my new buys soon.

Have you ever visited Utrecht?
