Straight out of a Fairy Tale

Prague is an old city straight out of a fairy tale -- with small cobbled alleyways, quaint houses with cobbled roofs and four-framed window panes, a large Gothic church towering over a large market square, an old astronomical clock that dates back to the 15th century, and a pastry that has a long tradition and looks like a hollowed-out log, hence its name, trdelník....

Christmas is Coming

Winter is here in Berlin. I just came out from an 8-hour AM shift and I am so happy to see the sun shining. Never mind that it is 4 degrees. It is a luxury! Caught this view on my walk home. Christmas Markets are alreads sprouting like mushrooms all over Berlin, and Germany or … Continue reading Christmas is Coming

The Paris I Visited

I just saw Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in IMAX yesterday, and oh I fell in love ♥️♥️♥️. Not to be over cheesy whatsoever but my heart did skip a couple of times throughout the presentation and it did surpass my expectations. Was that a rhyme? I don't care. And … Continue reading The Paris I Visited

Lake Tegel

Who cares? It was also our anniversary. Though we wanted to make it more intimate, just … Continue reading Lovers in Paris

Yes, she was overreacting. She said why Brussels when there are more interesting places in Europe that I have to … Continue reading A Day in Brussels

Alexanderplatz

Buildings and malls surround it. Tram lines, buses and trains circuit through it. Located in the middle of the middle (Mitte) of Berlin, this is considered the busiest part of the city. Last month it was just covered with stalls of the Christmas Market, and everyday it is covered with people going on with their … Continue reading Alexanderplatz

Rakotzbrücke

Kromlau's version of a devil's bridge is famous for its semi-circle arch which mirrors itself against the waters of Rakotz See into a perfect circle. It really is a perfect circle at any angle. There is something repulsive, at the same time beguiling about this bridge. Perhaps because it is also known as a "devil's … Continue reading Rakotzbrücke
