If We Were Having Coffee… On June 5

Hello, my lovelies!

I know it has been rather quiet on Study.Read.Write. recently. After the aborted A-Z Challenge, I had to focus on my studies and getting my other blog, Literati Girl, off the ground.

If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I am happy to say I have handed in all my assignments, and no it’s just my M.A. thesis between me and graduation!

If We Were Having Coffee… On April 24

Hello, my lovelies!

How are you today? Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share! As you can see, this week’s been pretty sparse on this blog. I think it’s fair to say that I had to give up on the A to Z Challenge for Study.Read.Write. I’m still going on Literati Girl, though and still catching up – as of right now I’ve got 3 reviews to go to be up-to-date.

If we were having coffee, we’d sit inside with a hot beverage. On Thursday we had 19°C here; it just started snowing today. The weather is so changeable, it’s not fun anymore.

If We Were Having Coffee… On April 9

Hello my lovelies!

How are you today? Welcome to this week’s Weekend Coffee Share! How has your week been?

If we were having coffee today, we’d have met up early to drive to Essen together. We’d have got coffee on the way and gone in my car while listening to Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book on the car stereo. This particular version is narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi and features the voice of Andrew Scott as Jack Frost. It’s a really good production!

Why are we going to Essen, you might wonder. Today I’m part of a guided tour around UNESCO World Heritage Site and former coal mining complex Zeche Zollverein. The tour is for hobby photographers and gives access to some places that are not open to the general public. The industrial complex covers an area of 100ha.

If We Were Having Coffee… On April 2

Hello my lovelies!

How are you? I’m so glad that you found time for coffee with me for this week’s Weekend Coffee Share! Come in, come in, what can I get you? I’ve just made coffee but I can also put the kettle on.

It’s a nice day out but a bit chillier than it was, so while the windows are open and letting the fresh spring air in, I think it’d be too cold to actually sit outside on the patio today – unless you want to wrap up in blankets, then I’m all for it!

If we were having coffee today, you’d notice I’m a bit giddy. Well, a few minor but good things happened this week and I’m excited.

#AtoZChallenge: Berlin

This post is part of the April 2016 A to Z Challenge. Find the challengers via the Blog Sign-Up or on Twitter using #AtoZChallenge.

Berlin, the German capital, is a multicultural, fashionable and thriving place. History, political power and optimism helped shape Berlin into the city it is today.

And yet, you can still find relics from its socialist past all over the city. Whether its Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall, Marx & Engels statues… the past is being kept alive.

#AtoZChallenge: Amsterdam

This post is part of the April 2016 A to Z Challenge. Find the challengers via the Blog Sign-Up or on Twitter using #AtoZChallenge.

Amsterdam. Who hasn’t heard stories of canals, red lights and joints? But Amsterdam is so much more than that!

It is incredibly easy to find your way around the city. Especially in the Centrum, all you have to do is follow the Grachten, the small canals that run in rings from the Amstel and the IJ all around the city centre. To find your way back, you just need to remember how often you crossed the water.

Amsterdam is full of bicycles and cyclists do have right of way. Mind you, a lot of the streets in the old town are cobblestoned, but riding your bike along the shore of the Grachten will make you feel like a native in no time.
