Eats in Berlin: Welcome to Soup Season!

Some of you might be wondering, does she even still eat out? Is this a travel in Brandenburg blog now? Will we ever receive new tips for brunch? And the answer to all of these is: Jein. The great German portmanteau meaning Ja und Nein at the same time and generally referring to: I don’t know! I’m working on a new project right now which is eating up my time (and resources), but I am still heavily invested in the many developments of the local food scene. Especially since the season of comfort food is coming up with loads of opportunities to eat our feelings, literally. So here’re some places to do that well, from cake to breakfast to more dessert, and the lovely soup in the top image. Enjoy!

Escape: Discovering Sweden’s picturesque Skåne

To be perfectly blunt, I did not expect a whole lot from going to South Sweden. My initial assumption was that it was probably a lot like the places around the German Ostsee with some nice parts, and yeah sure, it can be beautiful, but unfortunately too often its beauty is ruined by city planning. Oh my, was I wrong. It is nothing like it. First of all, it’s a lot greener, the villages and cities are a lot prettier, and the beaches wilder. I came back a reformed Sweden-fan. And you know what the best thing is: getting there is super easy. You only need to get to Rostock, take the comfy ferry for 6 hours, and there you are!
I did it like many tourists do: get a camper van to explore the countryside of Skåne, Sweden’s southern province, from south to east coast, to the remote lakes of the north and the stunning cliffs of the west. Here’s my summary with all the nicest spots to check.

Disclaimer: I was invited by VisitSkåne, travel itinerary and thus all spots were chosen by myself.

Escape: Gut Üselitz on Rügen

After breakfast in the lovely Forsthaus Strelitz, I continued my late-summer-roadtrip north heading towards Rügen, the giant island with the stunning cliffs, to stay in a renovated, or rather, entirely rebuild estate dating back to the 1500s! Located in the South of the island, Gut Üselitz resides in the midst of a natural park with lakes, apple and plum trees, and hundreds of birds. It’s so remote, so quiet, so pretty, it’s actually perfect for a time-out. And Rügen is a great destination anyhow, especially if you know the pretty places off the beaten tracks.
