Sunday Selections

November 16, 2014

Winter is creeping ever closer here in Berlin. The city has been oppressively grey for days and last weekend’s clear skies and golden tones seem only a distant memory now. A persistent fog has descended upon the city and has brought it a wintry breath that called for a slow weekend shut up indoors with coffee and books and woolen socks. I didn’t mind at all.

This week’s favourite links are:

WATCH: Itching to travel to Europe but short on time? See it all on timelapse! ‘HyperEurope: A European Road Trip in 2 Minutes’ will transport you away in the time it takes to boil the kettle.

READ: ‘One forgets words as one forgets names. One’s vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die,’ professed author Evelyn Waugh. Too true. I could spend hours scrolling through Otherwordly, a beautifully curated blog celebrating the rich lexicon of the world’s languages. Oh, that French word, ‘dérive’!

EAT: This drunken autumn upside-down cake is, in a nutshell, why I adore this season.

MAKE: Wouldn’t this DIY embroidered trip map make for such a wonderful keepsake of a travel journey?

BUY: Stuttgart-based Paperwolf’s intricate paper sculptures would make for such a unique feature at home. How cool!

GO: Planning a trip to Berlin soon? Check out Condé Nast Traveler’s recommendations on where to stay in Berlin: a collection of 25 great hotels, catering to all budgets and located in all corners of the city.

Hoping that your week ahead is full of colour!
