Our massive family decided to escape to the mountains for some well-deserved R&R over the weekend, but failed to decide on which area they were going to.

Whew! It’s been two months since I’ve posted anything and it’s been a whirlwind of a time. More stuff has gone on than you can possibly know, and so, while I’d apologize for my absence under normal circumstances, I’m not going to. Food and I have moved flats after having difficulty with water damage and … Continue reading 24 Hours in Berlin
