Underneath the Skin there’s a Human

I’m all into those autumn days again … I hate that I love hiding so much. New opportunities  come with new challenges. I used to be the one to welcome those challenges, to work hard, to enjoy growing with them. Lately I’ve come to prefer holing up in my bedsheets. My small little shelter from the world outside.

Burger Begehren

Two days ago Otto’s Burger opened up just around our street, so it was about time to check it out! A lover of sixties and industrial design, I fell in love with the raw architecture of this place: run-down walls, copper pipes and academic chairs. It seems most burger diners opening in Hamburg lately bank on the retro charm. However, it’s not the interior deciding about the quality of this place, of course, but the burgers. They were good. No more, no less. The taste of my Mixed Vegetarian Burger was well adjusted. I especially loved all the beetroot on it. All in all, it was yummy but not too special. The “normal” fries (unfortunately they didn’t have sweet potato fries in the afternoon) were pretty solid, though. Homemade, crunchy and salty. That’s how I like them.

The Thing About My Own Four Walls

Happy rainy Sunday everyone. Actually my intentions regarding this blog were to leave the scope of my own kitchen and home and invite you over to my favourite places around. I’m definitely going to do that. Just not today. This rain-swept day calls for staying inside, having late breakfast in bed and enjoying the smell of wood at my new home. I’m so in love with the sixties flair all the teak furniture sheds. Maybe you will be, too. So here’s to interior design galore! Crawl away back into your bed sheets, leaf through some beautiful coffee-table books and listen to the rain dropping! At least that’s what I do.
