My October in a few photos…

I started October in Stockholm, exploring an incredibly beautiful city.

My hotel was near T-Östermalmstorg, a vibrant part of the city. I’d planned to spend Saturday morning taking a free walking tour of the city, but the tour group was excessively large and there was only one tour guide, so I skipped out and […]

Wandering through Domäne Dahlem

A random piece of art at Domäne Dahlem.

Chickens at Domäne Dahlem.

Wheat at Domäne Dahlem.

If I were a plant person, I could tell you what this is.

Domäne Dahlem is a farming museum for families in Berlin – a nice place for a wander on the […]

Don’t have a lot time to explore Berlin and Brandenburg? Then ModellPark!

A couple weeks ago I spent an afternoon after work exploring ModellPark Berlin – Brandenburg.

Located in the middle of Volkspark Wuhlheide – or something vaguely in the middle – ModellPark is a collection of something like 60 miniature replicas of buildings from Berlin and Brandenburg, ranging from the places I know, to […]

Baby… #Berlin is Porn That Way; #glbt porn that is…

So Saturday I found myself looking at a gigantic picture of what was undeniably a man. With a pussy.

Yes, it was a naked Buck Angel, and as I’ve heard him described himself, while listening to the Savage Love podcast, he’s a man with a pussy. Never having seen him naked before (not my thing), […]

25 Years Later: I have no idea where I was when the Berlin Wall fell.

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall falling.

It’s interesting – for the first time, that I can recall, I was asked what I was doing when I heard that the wall had opened – and it occurred to me that I really have no memory of the event, when it happened.

King Kong — my drink at the Monkey Bar

Yesterday one of my ex-Jena colleagues and still cool friend, AK, arrived in Berlin in order to attend a workshop. Instead of bumming around and wasting her evening alone, she and I met up and bummed around and wasted her evening together.

Her hotel – […]

Recently Seen in Berlin

Berlin’s fernsehturm — Berlin’s iconic tower. Sometimes photogenic, but not always.

The Schӧneberg gasometer – in my ‘hood. Visible for miles.

This is Potsdamer Platz on a brilliant Sunday morning. Could not look better.

A week ago I popped in to Tastees, Berlin’s Jamaican restaurant, for dinner. Amazingly good food.

I’ve […]

I’ve ridden all six BVG Ferry Routes, from End-to-End

As I noted two weeks ago, Berlin’s public transportation network includes ferries – and in my first three years of living here, I never had occasion to take one. But then, once I learned that F24 is a rowboat, I decided to ride.

And some how, since I rode two ferry routes that back on […]

Ask Adam: Awesome Answers Assured.

Today was an odd day.

This past fall I bought myself a Jack Wolfskin jacket, thus completing a critical step in the process of becoming fully assimilated into Things German®. When I wear it, I become virtually indistinguishable from the thousands of Germans who wear their jackets every single day.

It’s a nice jacket, perfect […]

Slowly touring Berlin: looking at the architecture of East and West

Today is slow travel day, or something like that, and to celebrate I took an architectural tour of Berlin, one that compared the architecture of East and West Berlin.

Before I go a bit further, slow travel is an echo of the slow food response to fast food – in that, “encourages people to resist […]
