vacation week (part 1 of 2)

I have for the past two weeks been eager to start this post with you all, but a couple of things have kept me quite busy. Having an event to prepare for required time management and getting fair bit prepared ahead of time, so naturally I had to prioritize certain things. And then came the […]

a short, yet pleasant trip

Berlin has a special place in my heart. I see Berlin as the city that not only hosted Amma while she was on her European tour, but also introducing me to her personally, which allowed me to develop a strong connection. On this last trip we went for a little culture and food, food and more food. […]

one night in brussels

Although this was my third time in Brussels, the city offered a lot of delightful activities to keep me/us occupied for two days. Taking the Thalys from Köln to Brussels is probably your best bet; in two hours you are among the French/Dutch speaking people. The Bruxellois have an interesting flair. The resemblance between them and […]

old amsterdam

Honestly, I don’t even know where to start with this post. There is so much to share and talk about! There we were all bundled up in our winter jackets and excited to hit the streets of Amsterdam, for you see we wanted to welcome 2015 with a new experience. So we did just that! […]

berlin – Amma

This past week I boarded the plane to Berlin for a spiritual wonderful experience that I will never forget! Armed with a great deal of enthusiasm and cooking skills I set off to volunteer to cook for three days for the Amma “Embracing the World” charity. What a world! And what a fantastic woman! I […]

munich

Since my new metamorphosis blog is all about food and travelling, I have to write about Oktoberfest, celebrated by yours truly in the one place where it should be celebrated – Munich! Side note, I know I am posting this a bit after fact, but I am trying to catch up slowly with all my travelling… […]

königswinter

When you read a name such as “Königswinter” you might think darkness and coldness… Well, although darkness is definitely part of the charm of this resort town one can also describe it as medieval architecture at its best. The town itself circles a beautiful castle made by an archbishop of Cologne in the early 12th […]
