This year was quite a Harry Potter experience: we’ve visited Gloucester Cathedral, used magic at the Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour, went to Leadenhall Market (where you can find the Leaky Cauldron) and watched Daniel Radcliffe acting at theatre. But for me something was missing… Nearly the same moment we learned that we will move … More Expecto Patronum – Part 3 (with cream, chocolate sauce, sprinkles and a flake on top)
Perhaps you’ve recognized it eventually: we don’t love every single aspect London has to offer but there is something we really really appreciate: the cultural offerings. If you like you could watch a play, an opera or a concert every day – without any repetition. It feels like we have done more cultural things this … More Is it ever enough?
I know, we are miles away from the age where you enthuse about alcoholic drinks and try to persuade others that the one you’ve tasted recently is THE drink of the summer. To be honest – I am not sure what the current ‘in’-drink is. Could imagine it’s not sprizzer anymore which I’ve prefered the … More YUMMY!!!
On Sunday we had our first holiday hinking tour of this year’s holidays at the Lake District (the 5th time by the way). We decided to do an easy tour over Walla Crag – the fell we Germans would call ‘Hausberg’ of Keswick, the town we are staying at currently. After having reached the top … More As you find it
Eventually, THE day had come: the day when we went to Watford to visit the Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour. It’s exaggerated of I would say I couldn’t sleep the night before but I was extremely excited and pushed Alexander even more than usually getting out of the bed and having breakfast very, very rapid. … More Expecto Patronum – Part 2
Last week we had to celebrate something: 20 years of Harry Potter! As some of you know I am an extremely huge Harry Potter fan. Harry, Hermione and Ron accompanied me since I was a teenager and I am so so grateful that Joanne K. Rowling invented this creative, colourful and amazing Hogwarts world. For me … More Expecto Patronum – Part 1
I think nearly everyone of us has already tasted Alexander’s scones: they are fluffy, look great and (mostly) taste delicious. Today it was my choice to have a try at baking scones – I have to admit that all other scones I brought to work in the past were prepared under Alexander’s charge. The result … More Culinary world novelty
This is not a post about London or any cultural event. This is a post about one thing I’ve never thought that this would be one of my biggest learnings during the last months. When we decided to move to London we obviously knew that we will be more or less alone. Not lonely because … More Something to be really grateful
This is the look of my beloved husband after booking our summer holidays. Guess where we want to “travel“! Germany? Not this time! USA? No, of course! Teneriffa? Never again! Lake District? Absolutely yes! Since we had/have a lot of change this year we also decided to book a flat we already know: We don’t … More Pure happiness
Does anybody remember the story of my 30th Birthday which we spend in London? At about half past 4 in the morning of my birthday night the fire alarm turned on. It was a very cold night and took some minutes to grab all our important things (shoes, winter jacket, trousers, socks, scarf, money, mobile … More Fire!!! Or not?
