What we see, what we do and who we meet: it usually happens right in our neighborhood. These little randoms make up most of our lives here in Berlin. With every little piece of the puzzle we hope to get closer to portraying an authentic picture of the city.


EatFirst: Fresh Food Delivery


Update (19.11.2015): After review­ing Eat­First ori­gin­ally in sum­mer (we left the ori­ginal review below), the start-up closed for a little break and re-appeared on Ber­lins food scene with a new concept. Ini­tially, Eat­First was avail­able two times per day, mak­ing sure you’d get fresh, healthy and hot meals for lunch or din­ner. We were asked to test

Staycation: Schöneberg

10.11.2015 · 2 comments

It was a bleak, uni­formly hun­gover after­noon, at least 4 degrees colder than now and with even less sun to be seen. The unseason­ably shitty rain-weather wasn’t par­tic­u­larly invit­ing for a walk through Schöne­berg, but Fousieh and I couldn’t be deterred from our mis­sion. Fousieh loves Schöne­berg and secretly — well, not so secretly any­more — wants to move there

Laily’s Berlin: Playground Hang Around


I think, as we get older and more accus­tomed to being inde­pend­ent, out to explore and define ourselves, the more we real­ize that decisions and dis­cov­ery really take a blow at the spon­tan­eous people we once were. Nope, that’s not okay. What has made me come to terms with this? Well it isn’t hard to take a stroll through

Guys. It was only a mat­ter of time, but now my dreams came true: a Per­uvian Ceviche res­taur­ant, only 300 meters from my liv­ing room away. Guys. Para­dise has opened its doors for me. It’s the truth. Of course, on the first day of open­ing, I had to go in and see for myself. After binge-gorging on Ceviche in

I’m a really bad Ber­lin blog­ger, as most of you know. I rarely update around here and when I do, I’m five years too late for the excit­ing stuff. I have stopped pres­sur­ing myself, though. In fact, I enjoy roam­ing the same streets every day, vis­it­ing the same res­taur­ants. Unless it’s some­thing really new, innov­at­ive and cool, I am quite happy

Berlin Against TTIP: 200.000 People Protest

12.10.2015 · One comment

Polit­ical protests are a Ber­lin sig­na­ture dish. They com­bine all the char­ac­ter­ist­ics of the city: left-wing act­iv­ism, loud music, spon­tan­eous riots and an aware­ness of polit­ical and his­tor­ical rel­ev­ance of these gath­er­ings. We have also had a his­tory of doc­u­ment­ing the most import­ant demon­stra­tions and ral­lies in the city (a few examples:

Vis­it­ing and pho­to­graph­ing aban­doned, mostly former indus­trial build­ings from the Nazi & Cold War era has become a very pop­u­lar sport in Ber­lin. There’s an eerie feel­ing to break­ing & enter­ing a seem­ingly for­got­ten place, one that actu­ally reminds you of the his­tory of the city you are resid­ing in. It’s an uncon­struc­ted, uneco­nomic

Dread­ful, dread­ful, those last days of sum­mer. Every­body is scram­bling to catch the last rays of sun­shine in Ber­lin, and where more could you enjoy them than at the won­der­ful Spree with amaz­ing street food and cold drinks?

Laily’s Berlin: Three Days Of Nelly


Once again I was able to share my bliss­ful stay with another vis­it­ing friend. She’s a German-bred woman, but had not yet given her taste-buds a bite of this city… not to men­tion the heav­enly Prin­zessinnengarten pizza we rewar­ded ourselves with when our insanely busy week­end came to an end. I’ve real­ized this trip has taught me a lot about myself;

Laily’s Berlin: Pentaprisma Photography Course


We’ve all ima­gined ourselves as the next Annie Leibovitz or Henri Cartier-Bresson…no? Not even a little? Well at least I can say we’ve all dreamt to be known for hav­ing the coolest Face­book pro­file pics. I have never been form­ally trained in pho­to­graphy; don’t get me wrong I abso­lutely love it and recently – with all this blog expos­ure and meet­ing people

10 Ways To Help Refugees in Berlin

11.08.2015 · 2 comments

The whole refugee topic is as big in Ber­lin as it should be. Hun­dreds of new shelter-seeking refugees are arriv­ing on a daily basis. Last week, many people have united to help dur­ing the heat-wave in front of the LaGeSo. It was reliev­ing to know that one could take imme­di­ate action by driv­ing up to Moabit to donate food,

Summer on Landwehrkanal

03.08.2015 · One comment

I still haven’t been on a Sch­lauch­boot on Landwehrkanal, and some­thing inside tells me that I never will. I have seen too many dead fish float­ing on top of these toxic waters, too much dog shit near the canals and one too many rats fight­ing swans. But when seen from the river­side, it does look kinda cool, and maybe
