A whole new world? Not!

As some of my fellow students are drowning the Frozen-Yoghurt-Shop “fröhlich” in a flood of overwhelming compliments, it looks like I am the devil of the story. To be honest, I am playing in the team of the “Eiswerkstatt”-lovers. BUT (index finger up) – those new pictures of the fröhlich-bubblewaffles made me curious – reeeeally […]

One morning friends of mine were calling me up saying they parked in front of my apartment with a full picnic basket and wanted to drive to Stralsund. Right. My exact thought as well. What is Stralsund?! I didn’t know what to quickly grab. Do I […]

Planning a day trip

The weather is starting to get better — even the sun is back in Rostock (sometimes). Perfect time to start doing more outdoor stuff again. As it can be still very windy up at the baltic sea in Warnemünde and therefore challenging to even make the walk up to the lighthouse at times (this walk […]

Basement mice (Kellermäuse)
