The final day… it is nearly there. At the moment we are sitting in our – although furnished – quite empty and dusty flat. The relocator has packed all boxes this morning which should already be on their way to Germany (or the distribution centre). Since this last week in London has started I catch myself … More Almost there
… but without us! Today the Prince of Wales announced the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Although I am really happy for them (having wed Alexander was obviously my best decision) I am a bit miffed: Not only that the wedding will take place in spring next wear (when we are back again … More Royal Wedding…
When I started writing the ‘Expetco Patronum’ mini series I thought it will have two parts. But then I recognized that there are so many Harry Potter related things to discover in the UK. Thanks to Alexander’s colleague Tom we were able to experience beeing Harry and Ginny (or probably more realistic: Ron and Hermione … More Expecto Patronum – Part 4
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
