Talking Fussball: The Bundesliga Show is back to break down another scintillating weekend of Bundesliga action as James is joined in the heart of Bavaria by Jon and Bernie to break down a Matchday 20 that boasted dazzling and disastrous performances in equal measure.

Are we witnessing the downfall of three of the Bundesliga’s most storied Traditionsvereine? What on earth is going on with Hamburger SV? Does Robin Dutt need to be shown the door to save SV Werder Bremen? Have the wheels come off for Thomas Schneider and VfB Stuttgart? Has Henrikh Mkhitaryan finally announced himself on the Bundesliga stage in the way that was expected of him and what has been the main reason behind FC Schalke 04 rediscovering the form post-winter?

Living in Germany: Home Is Where the Dom Is

Everywhere we go, we always take the weather.  No matter where I go on holidays, it rains. Hamburg is no exception. I packed my case in sweltering heat on Thursday evening. At 9pm when I left home it was 22°Cm, and when I arrived in Hamburg in the rain with no proper clothes, let’s just say I wasn’t the happiest of bunnies. Naja, egal!

Hamburg is a lovely city, much much much bigger than Cologne, and there is a lot more going on. But I have to say I like how homely Cologne is just a smidge more. Hamburg was my first Erasmus choice for a long time, out of proximity to German friends, but when Cologne came on the cards (being much nearer to said friends and also a city I’ve always had a soft spot for) I knew it was the place for me. This time I wasn’t wrong.

A couple of weeks ago, M had to take a trip to Hamburg for work. He was going to have to drive a transporter pulling a trailer in order to pick up the item he needed. He thought it would be a great idea for us all to go despite the seven hour road trip with a 15 month old. We decided to take the chance as we were excited at the possibility of taking Monster to the Hagenbeck Tierpark.

Long Night of the Museums in Hamburg, Germany

One of the highlights of the long night of the museums was Hamburg's International Maritime Museum. An incredible museum in an incredible building with a beautiful setting.

Got museums? Hamburg sure does. I’m sad to say though, that until this past weekend I hadn’t been to a single one. Crazy? Perhaps. (But I sure know where to go out for a drink though, which is another cultural experience in and of itself.) But, now I can happily say that thanks to Die lange Nacht der Museen in Hamburg (the long night of the museums in Hamburg) I now have had a wonderful taste of the cultural life in this amazing city.
