(three of a hundred? twenty of a thousand? I don’t know how many posts about Berlin I already have and have no clue about how many more can come cause you know how much I love that city!)
Last weekend, after handing my supervisor the last draft of my thesis (and believe me, I delivered the final paper TODAY to College!), me and Matteo went to Berlin for about… 36 hours. Yeah, not a big travel but it’s always amazing to go there. We went there to my friend’s wedding party and to meet her newborn baby girl (L) and I had some other objectives too: meet Melisser Elliott (from the blog The Urban Housewife and author of the book The Vegan Girl’s Guide to Life), go to Veganz, the recently opened vegan supermarket, go to the Vegan-Vegetarisches Sommerfest, go to Yoyo at least once and go to Viasko, a vegan restaurant we’ve heard about it before but haven’t gone there yet. Too much for just a few hours, I know. And it was raining all the time too (where were you, German hot summer?!) But we’ve managed to do must of the things in that list.
We arrived in Berlin on Friday evening and went to eat at Yoyo Foodworld. I won’t write again about one of my favourite places ever but you can see how happy I was there!
On Saturday morning we woke up to go to the Sommerfest and we decided not to go to the supermarket this time (it will always be there – we hope so! – and the festival was just that day). Besides that Veganz would have a stand there too. We arrived there before noon and despite the rain there were already a lot of people there. The festival was hold at Alexanderplatz, a touristic must in Berlin, and it had between twenty and thirty stands, all about vegan stuff, from clothes to food. Melisser arrived after us cause she had an interview to perform in the stage and it was amazing to talk to her and watch the interview. She’s absolutely lovely. We also won some good prizes there! One package of vegan pet treats and a €15 voucher to spend at Veganz (and the guys there were nice enough to let us spend in the stand and not in the supermarket), so I ended up buying vegan marshmallows (a dream coming true!), white chocolate chips and a slice of an amazing chocolate pudding cake. Seriously, Berlin is so vegan friendly that it surprises me still.
