I had a very lovely start for my holiday in Berlin with Eva and Johan, and my uncle. Yes, lots of good coffee and conversations and taking it easy. (If I lived in Berlin I could always have peonies at home!)
Eva's husband Johan works in westberlin. Coffee was very good and cakes (from Five Elephant) so delicious!
One of the best finds of the trip was Café Pförtner (thanks to my uncle!). We went for both dinner (italian home food!) and breakfast. The old bus is so charming!
I am truly blessed by Eva's friendship. And I was so at home with Eva and Johan. They share such sweet love. And I'm so excited to see what's on the next page for them!
Juha and Pete have the most inspiring home!
We celebrated my name day after fleamarkets in Five Elephant.
I love the canal in Kreuzberg. It takes me back to so many summers there and long talks with my dear old friend Matthias (whom I got to know as a penpal in 1995!)
I have to say that my new favorite was Katies blue cat. Handsome, charming service, tasty espresso (from Bonanza) and Almond toffee crunch, the most scrumptious sweet I've had in I don't remember how long (a little like Daim, but the homemade version and so much better)! Need to try to figure out the recipe!
