  • Berlin, the City I Live In

    Berlin, the City I Live In

    It was in 2007 when I first came to Berlin and it was love at first sight! Unfortunately, I was only there for a 10-day vacation. Still, memories of that trip never failed to excite me even as I wandered around in my old hometown. As fate would have it, a year later, I met the love of my life, who, coincidentally, was living in Berlin! So I made the big leap - I got married and moved to Berlin! And to this day, that still holds the top spot as the best decision I've ever made!

    The Former Olympic Village

    The Olympic Games in 1936 took place a long time ago, but within the Olympic Village on the outskirts of Berlin the spirit of that time lives on. It was interesting to see such a historic site which also served as a haunting backdrop for this set of analogue photographs.

  • Kastanienallee, Prenzlauer Berg

    Kastanienallee, Prenzlauer Berg

    Ever since I live in Berlin, the Kastanienallee in Prenzlauerberg is one of my favorite walk-around-and-hangout areas (although has been suffering from gentrification). There you will find lots of shops selling cute nonsense, sweet little cafes, bars from worn to chic and all kinds of restaurants. I especially recommend a visit in autumn, when the setting sun paints golden flitter upon the pavements.
