Day 207 – Odenwald trail

I'm really lucky to live close to a forest, and although I've loved going in now and again over the past few years, it's been the last four months that I've had the most use out of it. It's been perfect to escape the house for a little while, without going too far away to… Continue reading Day 207 – Odenwald trail

Day 206 – Tonka bean ice cream

Today's entry isn't the most exciting, but it was still something absolutely brand new. Plus, it involves ice cream, so it's a little bit exciting. I was meeting my friend by the Alte Oper in Frankfurt in today's sunny weather when we decided ice cream absolutely had to be our next plan. The area around… Continue reading Day 206 – Tonka bean ice cream

Day 168 – Ninjutsu

Every year in Frankfurt there is a fantastic Japanese film festival called the Nippon Connection. As well as showing interesting films from Japan, the programme is always jam-packed with various exhibitions, classes, and concerts all on different aspects of Japanese culture. This year, the festival was entirely online, and although I didn't catch any films,… Continue reading Day 168 – Ninjutsu

Day 99 – Online art museums

During my interview with Ann at #365firstschallenge the other day, we briefly touched upon how easy it was to find new things to do during the times of social isolation. Every day there appears to be an abundance of new resources, recipes, tutorials, and opportunities available, and I'm actually finding it hard to fit it… Continue reading Day 99 – Online art museums

Day 74 – Used an e-scooter

E-scooters seemed to have popped up everywhere last summer: in Frankfurt thousands seemed to appear overnight last June. As I was in the middle of chemotherapy at the time I never tried one, but also, they sounded pretty scary. I've jumped out of the way of people zooming past, and heard many anecdotes of accidents… Continue reading Day 74 – Used an e-scooter

Day 72 – Onigiri, Lamian, and Soju

If you know what all of those things are, you'll know I've had a bit of a culinary tour around Asia today! I had a lovely evening planned - first a trip to the Palmengarten to view an orchid exhibition, and then a walk through Frankfurt to view different light exhibitions at the Luminale. Unfortunately… Continue reading Day 72 – Onigiri, Lamian, and Soju

Day 62 – Peruvian food

I have a friend who absolutely loves Peruvian food, most specifically ceviche: falling in love with it whilst travelling in South America, she's been infatuated ever since. Said friend is a massive foodie (saying she's a bit of a dab hand in the kitchen is putting it mildly) so if she recommends a dish to… Continue reading Day 62 – Peruvian food

Day 55 – Finger-whistling

This evening we finally used one of James's Christmas presents and went to watch the football. I've touched upon how much I enjoy watching sports here and here, but football has been my favourite so far - the atmosphere is second to none. We've seen Eintracht Frankfurt play a couple of times before and we've… Continue reading Day 55 – Finger-whistling

Day 52 – Tried a chocolate cafe

Following on from yesterday's cupcake cafe success, I met a friend in the city and suggested we go to a cafe that I walk past all the time, but have never been in. It's always so busy, and is on the same street, just a little further down, from Iimori – a Japanese Patisserie with… Continue reading Day 52 – Tried a chocolate cafe

Day 51 – Tried a cupcake cafe

Today's new thing was not entirely unknown to me, but it was unusual for me to share it with my husband. I often visit cafes for tea and cakes with my friends, but it's very rare I go with James. Today he had a day off, so in the quest for something new I decided… Continue reading Day 51 – Tried a cupcake cafe
