#day87 – the whole ABBA story

It’s snowing and snowing. And I’m wearing Nikes. I’m still wondering at my shoe choice for the trip. But with tights and an additional pair of socks I’m quite alright. That’s the real winter experience. Retrospectively we had a nice touristy day. Despite the challenging weather and shoe wear we did a little walk through Gamla […]

#day85 – repairing a broken shower hose

House managements are assholes. No matter who you are talking to, they say the same. They’re reachable two times a week. For three hours only. And no matter what’s your problem, they pretend to help but in the end nothing happens. I made this experience several times. There’s a broken tile in my bathroom since three years. Countless […]

#day84 – sending a postsecret

Today is the day of the long awaited christmas party at the company. Memories about the last one a year ago awaken. Christmas parties are events, where strange things happen. Everyone can tell a funny story about a drunken colleague, who behaved embarassingly by dancing as a baby monkey, falling into the cake buffet or hitting […]

#day83 – nordic embassy party

Even though I have my problems with the weather conditions, I like the Scandinavian countries and their culture. They have a great sense of design, architecture, music and all these kinds of creative stuff. One great music export product is an event series called JaJaJa. Four times a year three talented young artists gave a […]

#day81 – an old toilet wisdom in a new bar

Do you know what’s the best about shabby bars? The notes in the restroom. I love going to the toilet, when I visit a bar for the first time. There’re almost always inspiring quotes, funny claims or crazy stickers – at the wall and the hand dryer, in the mirror and on the toilet. Sometimes you […]

#day80 – bouncing through Munich’s Haidhausen

Awww, I found Berlin’s Rixdorf in Munich today. It’s the area around Preysingstraße in Haidhausen, the district I’ve stayed in for the weekend. Like Rixdorf in Neukölln it’s a neighbourhood with cute tiny houses from the 19th century. Both areas were founded as suburbs once and are located in the city center today because of the […]

#day79 – visiting the gay market in Munich

They call it the star of all christmas markets in Munich: Pink Christmas in famous Glockenbachviertel. A gay and lesbian christmas market, organized by Munich’s gay community and not only for gays and lesbians. Small, colorful and allegedly the most social market in the whole city. Sounds like turning your boring christmas market visit into a cultural adventure. Awesome. […]

#day78 – midnight walk along Isar river in Munich

Long overdue my return Munich visit. I’d visited Munich several times, but actually only for Oktoberfest. Ok, and once for a job interview. This weekendtrip is going to be my first real citytrip and actually mainly for visiting a friend. It doesn’t mean I’ll run from one sightseeing highlight to the next even so. Having a good time […]
