Dresden, you beautiful place! Last weekend, my boyfriend and me spent a spontaneous weekend trip at Dresden, the capitol of Saxonia, just 180 km away from Berlin. We packed our little bags, threw our bikes in the back of the car and enjoyed the hottest weekend for a long time in this adorable historic city (ok, we did pre-book our Airbnb room a few days before, but for my standards, this was a very spontaneous trip ;)). We were really amazed about the vegan options Dresden (especially the part called Neustadt) has to offer, so I wanna share a few little pics with you. Continue reading

Vegan in Namibia
Five weeks ago, I’ve been to Namibia with my aunt to attend a friend’s wedding in Windhoek. Wow, what a week! Most of the time we were quite busy preparing the wedding weekend and catching up with all the friends and family, but we also had some time to check out Swakopmund on the coast (where the above picture was taken). It’s an amazing country and one week was definitely too short! So was my food experience, but I still wanted to share my experiences with you.
Peanut Curry Noodles or my very loose interpretation of Pad Thai
I love Asian food. And coconut milk. And peanuts. So why not throw them all together, make a dish out of it and be reminded of exotic places in the middle of Berlin winter?! I gave it a try and I’m quite happy about the result. It’s got a nice texture and will leave you warm and full of memories or dreams about the sun, traveling and foreign destinations.
Vegan Lisboa – eating vegan in Lisbon
Happy New Year! I’m gonna start the new year with a long overdue post: Eating vegan in Lisbon. About six weeks ago, I went there for work for five days. Even though it was autumn there as well and the weather kept changing, we managed to catch some sun – and eating vegan wasn’t a problem either! It’s a beautiful city and people are very friendly. This is quite a short post as I didn’t have particularly fancy food all the time, but I wanna show and encourage you to eat vegan on holiday or trips abroad, even when you don’t speak the language :)
“Bethmännchen” – traditional Christmas marzipan biscuits from Frankfurt
These indulgent, gluten-free biscuits from my home area Frankfurt turn every marzipan hater into a marzipan lover. They are crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, and taste like Christmas. Just a bit different from all the usual German “Plätzchen”: They don’t need any extra spices and they are super easy to make. Simple almonds and marzipan are enough to create these little humps of happiness.
