Spoonfuls of Germany

“However, since I stumbled into writing Spoonfuls of Germany, the book that is, which first came out in 2004 and was recently released as an ebook, German food has taken the role of the German cultural ambassador in our family. My husband and children don’t speak more than a few words of German, and have never been to Germany except for brief visits but they know and appreciate a lot of German dishes. Today the scent of a Pot Roast from the Römertopf filling the house means comfort food for all of us.” Read more on Spoonfuls of Germany.

My Top Five European Capitals: Number 4

by Sebastian Cuevas

Sarajevo

Volim te, Sarajevo!

Sarajevo is amazing in so many ways. It’s beauty intertwines with its tragedy, and the sight of bullet-ridden facades and lone gravestones standing in green areas against a background of mountains give the city a bittersweet atmosphere difficult to come across in other cities.

The Obligatory Christmas Market Posts

From every expat blogger everywhere! This week I found posts and pictures on The Backnang Christmas Market on Starting Over in Stuttgart, the Heidelberg Christmas Market on California Globetrotter, the Goettingen Christmas Market on About.com, the Rostock Christmas Experience on About.com, and USA Today had a list of the best 10 Christmas Markets in the United States.

The Women of Berlin

“A city’s soul lies in the people, that inhabit it. The townscape consists of the street’s faces.
But when we look closer, we ask ourselves: Who is Berlin? Photographer Ashkan Sahihi has some answers. The capital has many faces, naturally. Sahihi portrayed over 300 of them.” Read on and view a few of the photographs on IHeartBerlin.
