So Berlin

Another day of light rain so another afternoon stroll close to home.  This time bordered by Stargarder Strasse, Wisbyer Strasse, Schönhauser Allee and Stahlheimer Strasse. These streets were generally more residential so I took a lot less photos but I did see a meal being delivered by a waiter from a Steak Restaurant to a […]

Stolpersteine (the English translation is ‘Stumbling Blocks’) is the […]


Konnopke’s Imbiss

Konnopke’s my local Imbiss (snack outlet) so I thought it was only right that I should go there for my first Currywurst of 2012 and start what I hope will be a series of posts about Currywurst in Berlin. Currywurst is the culinary pride of Berlin and beloved by its citizens.  It is a pork sausage, […]

Naughty Bear: Street Art by Unknown Artist in Berlin

Street Art – July / August 2011

I’ve finally got around to uploading my Street Art photos from my holiday in Berlin 2011.  A return to spending more time exploring the streets means that there’s more of a selection than 2010. You can see my favourites here but here’s a little taster:
