A Vegan Guide for Rostock – Part 1: The Perks of Spring

As the temperatures are finally rising after a truly extended winter, leaving the house doesn’t make you feel like you’re on an excursion to the North Pole any longer… or like you’re about to lose a limb because of a third-degree frostbite… or like the adrenaline is kicking in because you managed to ride your […]

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 […]

Been there, done that – 1

Chapter 1 – Introduction To me, it seems that writing a blog, just like writing in general, requires a certain set of skills of the text’s composer. Fundamentally, these would probably be: a general desire or drive to express one’s thoughts in a specific style, a basic capability to form a somewhat coherent narrative or […]

One of the Best Dealers!

After the little introduction to my secret peccadillo, in the coming Blogs I want to describe the best dealers of cold gold in Rostock. An awesome ice cream service shop is close to my home – right in the heart of the KTV (Kröpeliner-Tor-Vorstadt), pretty close to the Magarethenplatz. This dealer fits perfect in this […]

The smoothly Bowl

  Oh man! It’s raining again! The weather service doesn’t seem to be that honest with their forecasts. Nevermind. The fact is: the whole plan i set up for this evening with my friends will be drowned. Sigh. I don’t like to sit in a flat again and do nothing only because the weather sucks. […]

A great café in MV: the Europa in Rostock

Have you ever wondered about the building in the Friedhofsweg 44 near Doberaner Platz on which you can read “Knabenschule” on the front wall? In fact it is a building protected as a historic monument. The building, constructed in 1887, had been used as a school for boys. After the school was closed, the building contained […]

Big, Bigger, Little Money

First of all, I like beef. I like beef with tomatoes, salad and a lot of cheese pressed in two slices of bread and refined with a special sauce. As I´m writing this blog, my rumbling stomach is annoying me and I find myself longing for a tasty bite of Cyclops Burger with a thick […]

Ship ahoy – stay on a floating youth hostel ship!

We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot, Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.” (Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean)             Yet another beautiful hotel in […]

Drei, Zwei, Eis! – the “Eisscholle”

I am really, really thankful to have my flatmate (really!). Because if she hadn’t shown me the little ice-cream parlour “Eisscholle Rostock” (Eisscholle means a sheet of floating ice in German) a few weeks ago, my spring wouldn’t have been the same. It wouldn’t have been so smooth, so sweet and as creamy as it is now. The ‘Eisscholle’ […]
