A dreary summer in the north

So the Olympics started today! I am so looking forward to watching heaps of different events. Though I am glad that we are seeing them from a far. Earlier in the month we spent some time in England and Scotland. London was already quite full with tourists for the games and the traffic was bad. So if you are in London have fun at the games and good luck getting around town!

The UK weather was pretty miserable and unfortunately Berlin has not been much better. I commend anyone who can put up with months and months of sad weather.

How do you survive through long periods of cold temperatures, overcast skies and shortish, dark days? I survive by blogging, being creative (sewing, screen printing) socializing and most importantly exercising! 

A sad Berlin summer day
Haggis pie. Not my favourite Scottish treat
YUM! Cider!


  1. Looks like you had fairly good weather in Edinburgh :)

  2. Ooh I'm spending quite a while in Scotland at the end of the year- if you have any good recommendations for places to go, eat, see, then please let me know!! (by email perhaps)

  3. That haggis pie does not look tasty! Sorry you didn't get better weather for your trip to Scotland. What's the big white stately home you're standing in front of in one of the photos? it looks familiar but I can't place it.

    1. It's Brodsworth Hall. We travelled up through England visiting relatives and ended up visiting Brodsworth. http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/brodsworth-hall-and-gardens/
      It is disappointing that the UK summer is not that exciting, Berlin's summer is also pretty bad. Oh well, perhaps we will have a nice Autumn
