All the expat bloggers went to Heidelberg, and I missed it.

A sad state of affairs.  From all of their posts about it, it looks like it was a great time.  I would love to see the Heidelberg Student Prison sometime.  Check out who was there and what they had to say about it: Charlotte Steggz, Eating Wiesbaden, Lehrer Werkstatt, Indie Rock Kid, Confuzzledom, Beer Time with Wagner, and Doin’ Time on the Donau.

Your favorite doting YG editor has started a book blog.

And she would very much like it if you got click happy all over it, or liked the facebook page.  It is all about books, specifically speculative fiction.  Reports on German books (sci fi and fantasy and sundry) will be made.  So will reports on a lot of other things.  In my spare time, I am a pretty huge book geek.  Hope at least a few of you find something to enjoy.

Sherbet and Sparkles blog relaunches.

And it looks purdy too.  Go visit while she still lives in Germany.

Kitchensurfing in Berlin!

So maybe you were imagining people doing weird surf-y moves on kitchen tables, and maybe that was funny for a second, but actual kitchen surfing is a lot cooler.

“Back in March, we were lucky enough to participate in yet another really fantastic Yelp event. The Berlin Yelp community has really started to grow in the past year or two, due in part to the acquisition of Qype, and also because of our awesome CM, Anne, who orchestrates a lot of different get-togethers and events. Meanwhile, the people are warm and friendly, and so it’s no surprise that our foray into Kitchensurfing felt more like a cozy dinner party than anything else.”  Read the entire post here.
