Paris when it drizzles

If you visit Paris in the winter and the weather isn't on your side, here's a few things you can do in that glorious city of lights...

Moroccan Mint Tea

Morocco is place full of memorable moments, sights, sounds, smells and tastes. Perhaps none is more memorable than the delicious mint tea that is served everywhere all day - in shops, cafes and after meals, Moroccan mint tea is hot, sweet and delicious - and relatively easy to make once you get the routine down. 
On our recent trip to Morocco we picked up some mint, tea and traditional teapots and glasses, but you can easily make the tea in a pan or in any stovetop pot or kettle.

Summer in Berlin

Some pictures from my birthday weekend spent in Berlin. The sun was HOT and the city was very very cool. Time was spent brunching, sitting by the canals in our Kreuzberg neighbourhood, lazing under the Willow tree at Club de Visionare, visiting the East Side Wall, watching the sun rise at Watergate, visiting the Our Berlin Vodka distillery and getting involved in the Mauerpark Fleamarkt Karaoke! (By 'getting involved' I mean watching - just watching - this time...)
