Our favourite commenter on our blog (and so much more) passed away this early morning in Vancouver. Josh wrote some nice words in his honour.
Don’t worry, Berlin friends, it’s just for a visit. Josh and I have booked flights to spend the holidays with our families in Canada. First we spend Christmas in Regina and then New Years in Vancouver. We’ll be gone for two-point-five weeks and I’m really looking forward to it and I’ve been excitedly texting all my friends and making plans for everything. I...

Yay online shopping!
I love it when you order something online, and the next day, you look at the confirmation e-mail and you get really excited about one of your purchases. Or all of them. They’re supposed to arrive next week!

Good effort, me.
Today, I was asked to write the “World from Berlin” article that is posted on Spiegel Online International everyday. Usually, we take a subject that everyone is talking about, and simply report on what the newspaper columnists are saying about it. Sometimes, there is a clear topic of discussion. Today was not one of those days. You’ll have to check the site to see what it...
