What we ate (or thought about eating)

We ate so much in Berlin. So much. It was glorious, a gastronomical festival. We had ice cream every day (no photos, too busy eating it) and literally satisfied every hungry whim we had. Amazing.

Willkommen in Berlin!

As expected, I had a fantastic time in Berlin. These shots are from Neukölln, an area in the southeast of the city. Bethany and I took a walk along the canal and into the Türkische Markt. So many more photos to come! I’ve got a crazy couple of weeks in terms of work but I’ll do my best to post on the regular. In the meantime, do check out Bethany’s new fashion blog, The Arched Eyebrow. I think you’ll all approve.



Long walks

Melie came with me on one of my long walks last week. We walked from Islington to Waterloo and it was a beautiful day. Usually I go off trekking the city on my own but it was great to bounce off someone along the way.

I just got these disposable camera shots back. I love how valuable each shot is, especially in comparison with digital ones that can be scrutinised and kept or deleted accordingly. Insanely busy this week, but I can see 2 weeks off work on the horizon, which can only mean more photos (+ sleep)!



Yalla Yalla

I’d been meaning to go to Yalla Yalla for a long time. My brother and I planned to meet up for late lunch yesterday so I decided I should finally get round to it. It’s fantastic. Everything tastes really fresh and delicious (and never overseasoned). We ate so much between us but the food wasn’t so rich that we regretted any of it. It’s tiny and cosy and really friendly. I really can’t sing its praises enough. Lebanese is one of my favourite types of world cuisine, and Yalla Yalla is a really good place to try if you’re also a fan.



Hearty food

Czech food is fantastic. The perfect mix of stodge and flavour, it’s hearty food at its finest. We went for Chinese on our second night (to give our stomachs a break from all the dumplings – see last photo) but otherwise attempted to have a fully Bohemian experience. We certainly drank a lot of beer, which helped.



Kung Hei Fat Choi!

I spent quite a lot of time in Chinatown over the Chinese New Year weekend. I know I haven’t been around much recently, but I haven’t forgotten this little blog! I’m hoping to get back into taking photos over the coming weeks. I just got a new 18-105mm lens the other week, and it’s been mainly gathering dust since then so I should really take it out for a proper runaround. I’m going to Prague at the end of the month, which should really help. In the meantime, here are a handful of shots I took last weekend.
