Been there, done that – 2

Chapter 2 – My Rave Renaissance   Right off the bat, the headline is a bit misleading. I do not in fact, nor did I ever, consider myself a raver. The alliteration just sounded too good to not use in a headline. Nevertheless, there still is some truth in the phrase, as my party going […]

A Happy Place for Your Whole Family

It can be pretty hard for parents to keep their children amused every single day during vacation. They get bored in a split second and want to do something new and fun. If you as a parent can’t manage to organise a new activity as soon as you can, the whole day that should have […]

Who’s gonna save the world today?

Has your dream always been to turn into a detective? Well, in this case I have great news: it’s possible in Rostock! Everyone is in the know of Peter-Weiss-Haus (PWH) near Doberaner Platz. You might not only have come across the name while looking for a place to go out on a Friday night, but […]

Birds of a Feather…

…flock together. I guess that’s why Manni and I, once again (a few weeks after our trip to Karl’s), found ourselves on another outing. This time the journey went to the “Vogelpark Marlow“ (bird park). Unlike last time, we had planned ahead, though; we had planned how to get there, packed some snacks and drinks, […]

Bouncing in the sea

If you are sick of taking some exercise by being tangled up in hour-long hiking tours that your partner calls “fun”, I suggest you suggest to them to spend the day bouncing.

Climbing the Sugar Factory

Okay, let’s say you want to become more active (don’t we all?) And let’s say you don’t want to do the ordinary stuff like jogging or cycling. Here’s another way: Go climbing!
