I really want to go to……Almeria

It’s the end of March. I know, I know. And you know what? We’re at that point in which it’s time to seriously plan the summer holidays. Ah yes, the summer holidays usually filled with beaches, good food and good wine. But I have no summer holiday plans! And I need a beach!

Teufelsberg – the weirdest and coolest place in Berlin

I always knew Berlin was a quirky place. During my last trip to Germany’s capital, I ended up at a warehouse concert in literally the middle of nowhere. And so last week, yet again, I was in the middle of nowhere along with two other friends searching for an abandoned NSA spy station. After wandering through the woods for half an hour, I was beginning to lose hope that we’d actually find it. I’d convinced myself that we’d left civilisation…
