Suffolk Trip: Aldeburgh Attack

DSC_0530DSC_0555DSC_0536Be careful of this guy when having Fish & Chips on the Beach! His name is Hans-Peter and he will sit there patiently and wait until you will have the first bite of your fish. Than he’ll attack mercilessly. He is not interested in Chips.

Suffolk Trip: Clouds And Lights On The Coast

Seven years ago in Kerala/India during a night out in the empty streets of Alappuzha I met Nicky from London. We had some funny days together and connected via Facebook where we shared our life and views. Some years later she came to Berlin with a friend but I was in Sicily with my mum. So I gave her the keys to my apartment and when I came back I found a pile of presents on my dining table.

This year she invited me to her ultra fancy glam birthday party which turned out to be also her surprise engagement party. We arrived some days early to make a small holiday out of it and we had a marvellous and heartwarming time in Nickys and Johns pink house in Suffolk. Thank you so much!

As we are kind of biased against English food (you know – Asterix et cetera :-))  we have been really surprised by the quality and passion of what we have found in delis and even in supermarkets. Go to Black Olive Delikatessen or – next door – to Two Magpies Bakery if you crave for sweet stuff.

We deeply regret our former attitude and hereby we apologize officially.

Suffolk Trip: Fancy Housing And Incredible Skies At Audley End


On our first day in Suffolk we rented a car and meandered from Stansted Airport to the house of my dear friend Nicky. On our way – crossing Saffron Walden – we saw this fantastic fairy tale chateau and stopped to visit it.

It is called Audley End House and it is totally worth a visit. The staff is incredibly professional and passionate which met greatly with our curiosity.
