Water of Life at the Baltic Sea

There is currently an abundance of (super) hero/heroines. I’d always like to gloat at them all with a saying that deserves far more coverage: “I can make whisky disappear – what’s your superpower?” When I first arrived in Rostock, I didn’t find it particularly easy to find many places that offered a decent range of […]

Enjoy A Royal Garden Experience

If you ask foreigners about Rostock, you often get two replies: “What’s a Rostock?” and “Ah yes, there’s the beach!“ However, the fact that Rostock has several other beautiful natural and recreational areas in addition to the beach often remains an insider tip even for the inhabitants. The botanical garden is no exception. It is […]

Bow Wave in Warnemünde aka. Warnifornia

*Source of featured picture. (The oh so famous “Fährwelle” in Warnemünde) Would surf-riding at the Baltic Sea seem like the most common things to do? You will be surprised. Even though the Baltic Sea does not provide as clean sets as you might find at the Atlantic Ocean, there are possibilities to surf-ride. Even here […]

It’s not spooky in the ghost forest!

With the weather getting better, lots of people go to the beaches in Warnemünde to make the most out of the warm days at the sea. But if you’re not a big fan of overcrowded places (like me) and really just want to do some relaxing sun bathing without laying towel to towel, Nienhagen is a […]

Diving Dog in Baltic Sea

Spring always seems to come soon and summer even sooner. I have a very active dog and his name is Noah. He is that kind of dog that needs action to at least 2 3 times a day. We both enjoy going for a walk – he often more than I do. Noah is a […]

Day trip to Stralsund

This April I took a spontaneous one-day-trip to Stralsund. 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 […]

Stories of a Martian: On tattoos and/as souvenirs

Hey, hey! It’s me again – your favourite Martian, who is deciding on the fate of your planet. Fun, fun, fun. My friend visited me for my birthday this week. She comes from Neptun and her name is Tomomo. Yeah, it does have a ring to it, doesn’t it?. I took her sightseeing even if […]

Easter Struggle

When I got off the tram at Rostock’s Neuer Markt square, a huge sign saying “Ostermarkt” catched my eyes. I wasn’t prepared for what I saw at all. Instantly I looked at my phone to check the date. Quite confused I realized that Easter Holidays are about to come up. Didn’t we just celebrate New […]
