A few stops in the German Moselle wine-growing valley

Germany’s National Holiday “Tag der Deutschen Einheit” is celebrated on 3rd October and commemorates the reunification of Germany in 1990. Thanks to this, I had a long weekend off from work and was able to tick off one more destination from my wish list of places to visit in Germany. I’ve been wanting to visit some towns…

Snow ice @ Flockys, Berlin (DE)

I fell in love with “snow ice” during my travels in Asia: Malaysian cendol – with coconut milk and palm sugar syrup – was my first shaved ice dessert. Then more recently I tried some Korean bingsu in Bangkok. Finely shaved ice is surprinsingly delicious and particularly refreshing to eat! One of the ice cream trends of 2016 I…

Two highlights in Kassel (DE)

On my way back from a trip towards the middle of Germany, Kassel seemed like the best place to stop for a break. To be honest I knew very little about Kassel before going there. Google kindly informed me about the city’s many parks and palaces, in particular the “Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe” park, which has been…

Luicella’s Ice Cream, Hamburg (DE)

In March I had the pleasure of spending a very short weekend in the city of Hamburg, in the North of Germany. It was a rather spontaneous decision to drive there with friends who had never been there before. Although I enjoy living in Aachen, it’s nice to get out every now and then and…

December always seems to be a very busy month, with all sorts of things to do and organize before Christmas! Apart from the usual stress of finding nice presents for family, here are some of the things that kept me busy: Time to enjoy Christmas markets and decorations … in Aachen I was kept busy…

Ice cream street art… in Aachen (DE)

I will keep it short today and share some of Aachen’s ice cream street art with you! If you ever come to visit Aachen (Germany), chances are high that you will spot this smiling popsicle with a bite off! Señor Schnu is the artist behind this street art. If you’d like to eat good ice…

My very first nitrogen-frozen ice cream @WOOP WOOP, Berlin (DE)

It’s time for another recommendation in Berlin! Woop Woop makes the freshest ice cream ever! They prepare the basis of their ice cream with milk, cream, fruit, chocolate, herbs or spices before adding liquid nitrogen (-196°C) to freeze the mixture in 30 seconds, in front of customers. The most fun ice cream experience I recently…
