Berlin – a short love story

Berlin was never a favorite destination on my weekend escape list, especially in winter, but as people say – shit happens, and I’m glad it did. It was a rare occasion of the thirtieth birthday, that made twelve of us come from the east and wild wild west bearing gifts. I was the last one […]

The Hipsters’ Paradise

The other day I took the glorious walk from Andrews Road corner through Broadway Market down magnificent London Fields to Lower Clapton Road and I thought to myself: what a beautiful life.
