Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin


To all of my Readers, wherever they are, who were following this blog with patience, passion and an unceasing wave of encouragement – Kreuzberged says a most heartfelt thank you!
2016 might have been a year to forget on many levels but on a personal one, it is one to remember with great fondness and gratitude: it has been a year when my younger sons joined the ranks of primary school pupils, a year when my older son has been a constant source of pride and exasperation – just as a ten-year-old should be; it´s been a year when my husband got a new job which makes him proud and exasperated – as a job probably should, too:-)
It has also been a year when I finally fulfilled a great dream of writing a book about Berlin, created a first in a series of audio-tours of the city, began working on two other fantastic projects and kept doing what I love doing the most: reading, researching and writing. So thank you to all the wonderful people – my family, my friends and my “partners-in-crime” – and all those who accompanied me in 2016 and without whom none of the above would have been possible!
It might be bleak mid-winter out there and the worse might be still to come but there is always a sunny patch you can choose to stroll in.
Guten Rutsch!/Happy New Year/Do siego Roku!

      Claudia, thank you so much and I am so sorry for responding so late! Juggling family life at Christmas and a writing career (LOL!) is never an easy task;-) All the best in 2017! Hoep to see you soon.
