A day at the races

2 October 2011 There’s a horse and cart racing track south of where we live, and we had won a family ticket from the Currywurst Museum, which was hosting the races there today.

Museum-y Birthday

29 September 2011 So, I had a great birthday yesterday. The husband gave me an iPad (best husband ever or what?) and my mum cooked a really lovely meal for everyone in the evening. But the best part of the day had to be my visit to the Currywurst Museum, which was my brother’s gift […] Read more…

26 August 2011 Today we went to see another museum which I’d picked mostly just because it was in the neighbourhood (though in Berlin, with its close to 200 museums and galleries, there’s always one in the neighbourhood) – the ‘Berliner Medizinhistorisches Museum’, or the Berlin Medical History Museum. Situated on the campus of the […] Read more…

{Berlin} Museum für Naturkunde

24 August 2011 Yesterday I finally visited my first Berlin museum! I did not have any expectations of the Museum für Naturkunde, I picked it because it was close by and because natural history museums generally are pretty cool places. What can I say? Wow! I only saw a fraction of it (since the boy is […] Read more…
