Events in Berlin – September 2019

2nd September 2019 Maria Lee 0

Boys and girls, here’s presenting Cherry Cross’ first social calendar for Berlin!! I have been doing social calendars for Cologne for a couple of months now and thought that this would be no different. WRONG. SO SO SO WRONG. As Cologne is a smaller and relatively quieter city, there wasn’t […]

Cologne to Berlin, with aches, pains and bruises

13th August 2019 Shaheen Rajan 0

As I write this, sipping cappuccino at Cappuccino in Berlin, I can’t seem to remember the last two weeks. Everything is back to normal and I am loving every bit of our time in Berlin. Weather has been exceptionally kind. Coffee has been good. Food is cheap. Buildings go higher […]

Beer becomes vogue at Straßenbräu

19th February 2018 Shaheen Rajan 0

I have always associated a certain, not-particularly appealing image to the kind of people who drink beer. A big white man, who flushes crimson every time that the temperature goes above 28℃. He watches football, with a bag of Doritos on his beer belly, and hands occupied with shuffling between […]

Baywatch had its European premier at Berlin’s Sony Center, with a press conference headlined by Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson, Zac Effron and a few other members of the team.

Travelogue: Where’s the German Fashion Scene At?

17th December 2014 Shaheen Rajan 0

Being an EU state, I had solid preconceived notions about Germany before I had arrived. I had assumed it to have popular fashion streets and people in hot-off-the-runway ensembles, with their unique ‘German’ flair to it (though I had no idea what that meant). Contrary to my ideas, Germany was […]
