The world today is a far more sinister place than you could ever image. And the future will make Wells shudder in fear. Oh it will shine and glimmer, glitter and glow in the light. But eventually it WILL consume…all.

+ the travel itch

A feeling you can never shake off, the Travel Itch is. Abandoning NYC in twelve hours, throwing the hitchhiking thumb in Cap Corse, skiing Zermatt is a blizzard, booking a flight to Tel Aviv, wine tasting in Slovakia, sleeping on night trains to Andalusia – it’s not a 1st class ticket with complimentary champagne but...

It’s time for another food post! This time Cuisine Wrangelstrasse 5 went for an all vegetarian dish. Slice sweet potatoes and purple potatoes into wedges, then place them into a large pan or baking dish along with garlic and shallots. Rub with huile d’olive and squeeze fresh orange juice over potatoes. Bake in the oven...

+ goodmorning snow

This morning was a flurry of snow, for once I walked to the U-bahn without music, to hear the crunch crunch of snow under my shoes.

+ Quinta de la Rosa

This is a beautifully crafted 10 Year Old Tawny by the leading wine maker Jorge Moreira at Quinta de la Rosa. The grapes are grown on Alto Douro on the banks of the famous River Douro. The port itself has a very intense nose of raisins but a palate that’s very refreshing and balanced; Strong...

+ Ray Ban Aviators

Ofcourse everyone knows the Aviators. It all starts in 1937 when Bausch & Lomb founded the company Ray Ban, intended for the United States Army Air Corps. The original production of “pilot’s glasses” for aviators were made of gold-plated metal frames with G-15 tempered convex glass lenses transmitting 20% of incoming light. Photos of US...

+ if ever in Vienna

In Paris, you go to a cafĂ©. Obviously as the name suggests, they have the standard array of cheap and burnt arabica coffees. But more often than not, you meet at such establishments pour un demi after work. In the UK, you’ve got pubs. No need to explain what that’s for. In Wien, or Vienna,...

+ meal plan on Austrian Airlines

If I take the Low Cholesterol meal plan, I might feel healthier…wait. How light is the light meal? But I do rather like fish. Could be nice to go with the Fish meal. But what if I’m feeling like meat that day? How am I supposed to know what I feel like eating several weeks...

+ memories of summer

This is in retaliation to all Angelinos in 15 degrees sunshine. Berliners are exempt from such numbers, but at least we can dream! So for all of us holed up in in the frigid corners of the EU…there once was a thing called “SUN-shine” in Berlin. You might glimpse this phenomenon once every 8000 years...
