I haven’t been keeping you all up to date with my endeavours and I had a dream that someone hacked into my blog and started to erase all my blog posts, which in turn motivated me to write a blog post, because clearly my subconscious is trying to tell me something about my blog.

being adelina events is super busy at this time with a corporate picnic, a Canada day celebration and potentially the planning of my own birthday! Honestly, I am super happy and excited to be surrounded by so many people that love my work and want to collaborate with me! I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship… Continue reading

vacation week (part 2 of 2)

Here it is: Part 2 of our adventures on a small rocky island called Malta!

After road trip to the southern coast, a long night’s sleep came naturally. The next day, we woke up nice and early and after a grandiose breakfast headed for a day in Valetta.


In Valetta we saw the Catheral, the Grand Master’s Palace, fortress, and came upon a magnificent restaurant in a cave which we later returned to have dinner. Continue reading

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 editing and publishing of my interview with an amazing Canadian diplomat, which by the way, can be viewed online here: http://www.dkg-online.de/2015/04/13/deutsch-kanadische-eindruecke-interview-mit-leslie-reissner/?lang=en. Continue reading


I can finally see the end of the tunnel with my event planning business.

Website is up and running – business cards are on their way and the metamorphosis process begins.

I am super excited for the fresh brand make over – and really I have to say Alexandra was a fantastic help when it came to figuring out my logo. Her suggestions worked and in the end the logo is super simple yet effective, which is what I wanted! Well Done Alex and thank you :)! Continue reading

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. We started off with a ridiculous lunch at the Adlon hotel. Why was it ridiculous? Continue reading

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 the Parisians is uncanny, however they have their very own little twists around the edges. For instance, everyone knows that crêpes are a big thing in France well they are an even bigger deal in Belgium. The twist to crêpes in Brussels is the enormous fire that surrounds the sweet and savoury treats. Just to be clear I am in no shape or form suggesting that the fire twist is a negative thing, but I am pointing out that it’s a Brussels twist that makes them stand out. Continue reading

After very careful consideration I have managed to come up with a name for my event planning business:

being adelina events

This is the best suited name! It’s me and it’s really where everything started. I have also decided to write about the process of creating this business with you to hopefully help out people that are also interested in doing something similar. Not to worry the travel/food posts will continue to be delivered in parallel!

Now I am working away at the perfect logo and have started the full write up for a separate website highlighting the events I have done so far. Such a fantastic process it is to be able to sit down and hammer away at a project that I feel so passionate and close to.

Stay tuned, more to come very soon…


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!

Everyone has seen photos and videos of the Red Light district, well so have I. However, seeing it live is a whole other ballgame. The Red Light district left me speechless, and for those of you who personally know me, you can vouch for the fact that ‘speechless’ is a rare if not unheard of characteristic of mine.

I have travelled to this place three times and each time I thought to write a blog post about my adventures. I haven’t written about Nuremberg until now because I was waiting to see the city in the winter. Even after I saw it this Christmas, this post has taken me quite a long time to publish.

So I thought the best way to start off this post is through a photographic gallery of my first visit to a small town close Nuremberg called Lauf:
