I am all for a red cup with an unpronounceable long name to it, as long as it’s got my name written all over it. But sometimes, I just need to step away from the corporate coffee chains and go for the real deal: a local cafe, where the bread is freshly baked and the soups […]
Thanks to the reintroduction of Date Night and also because we had a special event to celebrate, we visited a London landmark location that so far had been off our radar. The Savoy is one of these places everybody knows in London but few actually frequent. Maybe because it seems too obvious, too touristy (it’s […]
Amazing how with two little children, you easily become a couch potato, skimming through a copy of Time Out with your feet on the coffee table, not really giving a toss what the world around you has on offer. It’s a rather sad state of affairs, given that we are living in London, Metropolis and […]
Yesterday, I had the pleasure to meet my blog friend Rosie Scribble (the one of Google+ fame) for lunch.

Where to eat?’ she asked eagerly. Knowing V’s usual stomping grounds in Munich, I realised that anything too close to […]
Nobody starts a blog with the explicit goal to make real life friends. You don’t really set up a blog and follow other blogs you like, thinking ‘one day this woman and I will be having coffee together, crying tears of laughter into our lunches’. That would be slightly creepy. However, if you stick to […]
Eat your lardy heart out, Mr Atkins, but there is no way you will ever see me on a no-bread-diet. A while ago, when my innocent ears first got wind of the idea of cutting out any kind of bread, my first instinctive reaction was to dig my teeth deep into a pretzel – an […]
