BBI – Berlin Burger International

If you are looking for the best burger in Berlin, you will find it at BBI – Berlin Burger International. We did the research and every burger we tasted pointed to this tiny burger joint on Pannierstraße. If you don’t believe us, just look at the pictures below, take the bus and go there. Try it and i bet you are going to have one of the best burger experiences of your life. This is not a joke. We were having a discussion while walking to BBI about how did we hear about this place. Maybe one of us...

Tempelhof: The Mother of All Airports

In the center of Berlin, stands a monument to a darker time in the past and a link to a near future. This place is Tempelhof Freiheit, a vast park surrounded by emerging urban quarters. The airport was originally constructed in 1927 and was occasionally cited as the world’s oldest still operating commercial airport. But, since it is no longer functional, this is not an issue anymore. When we moved to Neukölln in 2012, this was one of the first places we decided to explore. Barbecues on sunny afternoons were mandatory during the summer and we spent lots of...

Where to Eat in Berlin: Vadi Frühstückshaus

Kumpir is a baked potato in the turkish way. In its most basic form, a Kumpir is made with potatoes that are wrapped with foil and baked in special ovens. The potatoes are cut straight down the middle and the insides are mixed with unsalted butter and puréed with kaşar cheese. However, all kinds of foods can be added to the potato and this is what you are going to eat at Vadi Frühstückshaus in Neukölln. We found Vadi Frühstückshaus while walking on the sidewalks next to the Karl Marx Strasse subway station and we don’t remember why it took us so long to get back...

A Foursquare page for Fotostrasse

Foursquare can be a really great tool for finding great places around you. The problem is that people have an issue going over check ins and mayorships. My experience analyzing how people around me use the service is always made of useless check ins for no specific reason. Once you go over that, Foursquare becomes a great tool. That is why Fotostrasse has a page there right now. A Foursquare page for Fotostrasse, but why? The idea of creating a Foursquare page came from the experience of visiting Berlin for the first time back in 2011. Since i knew i...

Burning Snow, A Day of Celebration in Northern Sweden

In the first days of february, we had the pleasure to be in Umeå just to watch the city being launched as the European Capital of Culture. And take pictures of everything we saw there. Burning Snow was the name they chose for the official inauguration ceremony. Burning Snow sounds a little scary on our ears and it got even worse when we realized that everything was supposed to happen on top of a frozen river. Nothing different for the local citizens but really weird for we as brazilians. And even worse for our friend André Motta, who came...

Closed Supermarket on Karl Marx Strasse

This past sunday, we decided to take a walk on Karl Marx Strasse and have breakfast in a place that we don’t go that often. This place is Vadi Frühstückshaus and we mentioned it fast on our foursquare page. But this post is not about the breakfast we had. On our way back home, we saw what used to be one of our favorite turkish markets in the area. But it was gone. Right there, we started remembering the great garlic dip they used to have and the amazing hummus we got there a few months ago. But now it...

Berlin Street Art Meeting – Winter Edition

This saturday we decided to see what was happening at the Berlin Street Art Meeting at the Urban Spree. Since we moved to Berlin, we have been more in love with street art and this felt like a great place to see what is happening in the city. And we were right about it. At the Berlin Street Art Meeting we realized that we love El Bocho and Klub 7 even more than before. Now we need to buy some frames for all the postcards we got it there. See the pictures below and you will see what we are talking...

Shit Expat Berliners Say: Exposing the truth about expats in Berlin

We found this video about Shit Expat Berliners Say as soon as we moved to Berlin, almost two years ago. It took us a while to post it here. And it is strange to see how we identify around us so many things similar to this video. After all this time, it is weird to see how much of that is still true. The things we agree the most with the video are those below. Yes, beer is cheaper than soda in Berlin. Sometimes, even cheaper than water but those beers are kind of weird. I really need to learn to...
