A Café usually means a coffeehouse where you meet up with friends, talk for hours, maybe grab a bite to eat, and enjoy a nice cup of coffee. Café Käthe is a little bit more exotic. Of course, you can do all of the above here. Don’t mistake Café Käthe for your average coffeehouse, though — it’s […]

Travelling is one of my greatest passions. You might relate. 😛 Unfortunately, one of my biggest weaknesses is being chronically broke. What usually happens when I’m at the ATM is that it either starts laughing with cynical pity or it just gives me the finger. You get what I mean. I spent the summer of […]


Going to the movies in Rostock

April 29, 2016

Watching movies is just a great act – alone or together with some friends. It was a sort of a general tradition going to cinemas a couple of years ago. These days, less and less people are doing so. We live in an age of cheap technology; I am talking about downloading music and films […]

Sometimes Rostock is just too big for me. Too many cars and too many people, too many trams and too much noise. Having grown up in a village of 62 souls, the city can still be overwhelming for me at times. That’s when I go to the Old Town. Because it feels like being in […]

Let us take a sunny Sunday afternoon for our little experiment. Setting up a big barbecue in my tiny little garden – gorgeous flavour. Argentinian rump steak; baked stuffed mushrooms; stuffed bell peppers; an ice-cold bottle of beer. Everything seems quiet perfect in our good company, but what the heck is that? Jealous and snoopy […]
