Happy Hour
One of the best things about working in a cafe (and there are good things about working as a drinks monkey, trust me) is that, when the weather is scorchio and Berlin's residents have evacuated to the many lakes in and around the city, I get to play around ...

WTF of the Week: Shit Welsh Expats Have To Do
1) Remember that, in other countries, the word 'lush' is not a catch-all adjective for everything beautiful, tasty or aesthetically pleasing. Time to crack out the thesaurus. 2) Explaining to someone that you're from Wales goes something like this: YOU: I m...

BANGIN' CHOONS: Ballet School
   All pictures shamelessly lifted from Ballet School's Facebook page. It's safe to say that, like many former nerdy teen emo children, I'm big on music. My CD collection back home consists of well over 400 albums. I lost count of how many gigs I've attende...

WTF of the Week: 5 things I will never get used to about Germany
1) The milk It just tastes...different. I can't put my finger on it. A cup of tea here tastes nothing like the tasty warm beverage I know and love at home, and I'm 100% certain that the milk is to blame. No, I'm not drinking the UHT long-life stuff. Yes, I ...

German insults I have learnt
DISCLAIMER: The following phrases were taught to me by a couple of German teenagers after a fair few amateur mojitos. I have checked and validated the legitimacy of all of the following as best I can, but cannot promise that all (or any) of them are 100% co...
