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 […]

Book digger

Oxfam Bookshop right in the front of Hampstead Undeground station, on 45 Heath St is worth an individual post. Usually, I leave a charity shop with one or two book(s) and a magazine or vinyl (on a good day), but this Sunday will go down in history as the best Sunday for a Book Digger […]

Gaudi, 4Gats and the sea of tourists

Short story long and not the other way around: summer vacation in Barcelona. This was the fifth time and I’m not looking forward to go back. At least not till the city clears out and Catalonians gets some deserved rest. Imagine living in a never ending treasure hunt. This is how Barcelona looks like now. […]
