My adventure eating Vietnamese food in Hamburg

When the soup arrived, I understood why people eat it for lunch. The massive soup bowl contained at least five litres of soup in it. Now I moved on to the next challenge, that is, what to eat it with. It was too watery with floating vegetables and tofu in it.

A day trip to Moelln

A day trip to Moelln from Hamburg

You can’t just stroll around Moelln without stopping every few steps to gasp at the dreamy landscape. The tiny lakes streaming through the town, dotted with swans and lined with charming houses cast a spell on its onlookers. It is best to visit Moelln in spring or summer, for you can choose a bench in one of the many beautiful parks and enjoy a scenic view of the dense forest from across a lake while licking a cone of ice-cream.

A day trip to Schwerin castle from Hamburg

I’m a sucker for scenic castles and the legends that entail them, and Germany is full of them, 20,000 castles to be precise, and I’m still counting the legends.

A trip to Marzipan Museum in Luebeck, Germany

Marzipan Museum in Luebeck During my first University excursion, strolling on the damp streets of Luebeck, trying to digest all the information I gathered about the queen of Hanseatic cities, I first discovered Marzipan. “You must have heard of the famous Niederegger Marzipan”, my guide, a proud local, bragged. “Here’s the Marzipan museum”, pointing at, […]

My favourite 10 things to do in Berlin

Amidst the quintessential chaos of a sought-after city, Berlin shines as bright as the midday sun. Once a war-torn capital speaks volumes to all those who listen.  Even if you are averse to cities, Berlin, infused with so much history, culture and art scene can make you think differently about cities.
