Dear lovely readers,

Euhm yes, pretty much, maybe, no, euh,.. yes, maybe happened. There is an entire Christmas village in my living room with lights and a Ferris wheel with light ánd sound. Did we need a Ferris wheel for Christmas? Euhm yes, pretty much, maybe, no, euh,.. yes, maybe.

Currently I keep annoying myself more about Dutch “things”. How is it possible that a train arrives once in 30 minutes and how did I manage that for years and years?

To be honest I am missing Germany more and more. I just don’t want to hurt the people around me, so I won’t tell them, that I would rather go back, because life was pretty much equal there. The only difference is that I have more stuff and a bigger apartment here.

Oh guess what?! I have an IQ of 105. I’m AVERAGE. 

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers!

After spending a lot of money on cooking supplies, I spend more money on food. To be honest, I am kind of scared there will be a lock down in The Netherlands. Okay, not kind of.. I am scared, maybe terrified. It would be my second country and my second lock down.

I feel obsessing over Christmas lately, just because I want everything to be over. I want to walk around, somewhere in Germany. Just as I remember it, when I was a kid, when we went to Essen to visit the German Christmas market. I want that joy in my body that I felt, when I visited Berlin for the first time & my Christmas joy combined.

Since I do not know what to do with my life at the moment, I keep writing, as always. Maybe it is my future.

Back to Christmas, I was thinking of buying a Christmas village. Do I have a spending money addiction? Euhm yes, pretty much, maybe, no, euh,.. yes, maybe. Who knows?  Am I thinking of a Freaking Christmas village in September? Euhm yes, pretty much, maybe, no, euh,.. yes, maybe. Will people look at me like a freak? Euhm yes, pretty much, maybe, no, euh,.. yes, maybe.

Okay, be right back, going to buy a Christmas village pretty much, maybe, no, euh,.. yes, maybe.

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers,

Yesterday I spend about €200 on cooking books, groceries and cooking supplies, but the thing that mattered, that main thing… the main vegetable of the meal.. I forgot!  BROCOLLI. It’s okay, we’ll (I) eat carrots.

I finally have my oven! So I’ve been baking for 10 hours now! And my website is kicking it, over 100 views. 

Ps. How crazy is it that is almost October?? It is not crazy, but still. Can’t wait for Christmas.. or am I moving too fast?

Have a nice evening!

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl


Hey lovely readers!

Its been a while since I wrote a piece for “Katharina is writing”. The good thing here is.. no one is asking, because no one is seeing this blog. Okey cool.

The real reason I’m writing is because I had a conversation today and the person asked me where I saw myself in 5 or 10 years. I don’t even know where I will be in one week! So I said I want to study literature, because I’m into the English language and I’m already doing an English language study. And he asked me WHY.

I’m bad a explaining such things, especially when I’m not telling the truth. Let’s be honest, so we all need to know what we want? I want to photograph and travel and do whatever I like, I don’t want to work for a “boss”. Maybe I can make that work before I die, I don’t know.

If you read this, shoot me some ideas.

Have a lovely evening and remember.. in 3 months its Christmas! 

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers!

Yesterday I spend my time in Rotterdam, it was totally worth the travel! In total I have been traveling with public transportation for 5 hours, just in one day. On the way to Rotterdam, I bought a book about London with tips and tricks. Since I want to go to United Kingdom in December, this will come handy.

There is the "Light Festival" going on in Berlin. Must say, at moments like this, I miss Berlin and the ease of traveling through the city. And most of all, create amazing photo’s! It will not be soon before I will be back in Berlin, but I keep hoping for better times. Times, where we can travel without fear.

Just finished watching the film “After”, my eyes are getting soggy. 

Have a lovely day!

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers!

When I was younger, I always thought I was so mature, and I was an adult. Of course, I made mistakes, but doesn’t everyone make mistakes?  What is the meaning of the word “adult”? Is it that you have the perfect life, like you imagined? Or is it when you can pay all your bills, check all the sales in the supermarket and can buy one piece of clothing a month? I would not know; this is all very new to me.

I am asking, for myself. When I lived in Germany, I thought I was as mature as it could be. I was living in another country, without my family! Doing your groceries, the dishes and laundry; I got used to it. I did not want to go to the supermarket today, I was so exhausted of not sleeping. But being an adult means; if you do not go to the supermarket, there is no food in the house. I am learning here.

I hope you have a beautiful night!

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers,

Katharina is writing, it is a bit standard, right? The typical girly-girl blog. Must say my mind is a bit off, now, weird dreams and all. Oh, did I already tell you that concentration is not a part of my vocabulary since I quit smoking?

I feel better, but worse. I feel more energetic, but more tired. I feel happier, but my inside is burning. Addiction is a weird thing, but shouldn’t we talk about this more? Whenever I hear about someone quitting something, “It was so easy. I did not feel bad for one day.” That is not what we need. We need others, to open up about feeling bad when we are going through the same.

For better or for worse, we need to keep breathing. With Covid-19, we do not see each other, we will hear each other, but not meet each other. 

Bis später & have a lovely evening!

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 


Hello lovely readers!

Sitting here, on my way too big bed in The Netherlands, I look back at my time in Berlin, with a smile. When I think back of the craziest thing that happened in Berlin, I cannot think of one thing, because it is a full list.

The full list made me photograph almost every day, create paintings, and try out new things. What is better than, looking back on the past and smile? Being proud and able to move forward? Berlin and travelling made me who I am today. A person 50% proud of her past. 

Not everything should be in books. 

Bis später & have a lovely day!  

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers!

Do you believe creativity comes with the years? Of can it depend on the places you visited? Interesting matter, don’t you think? When I lived in Berlin, creativity was the focus of my day.

"September 2018, Lietzensee Park.

Woman in her 60’s with a floral dress and bright red hair.  

The woman was holding a stuffed hedgehog with a tiny champagne glass with champagne in it.  

She seemed very smart, very in the now. And we had a discussion about social media and how it is breaking our lives. People cannot live without it; some seem to be obsessed. She did not ever want her face on social media.

She kept giving the stuffed hedgehog champagne. This was my second day of Berlin."

is später & have a lovely day!  

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers,

Was checking multiple websites and different items. After one hour, every website gave me a pop-up “aren’t you forgetting about the items?”

Obviously I didn’t forget but what I forgot, what was in the basket? So, I checked another time. Still not going to purchase, but got a reminder again.It’s interesting how our minds work. Whenever we visit a website or a store, we suddenly feel that we need the item. When purchased, you’ll forget what you bought.

This is me for the past 10 years. Thank you internet and marketing techniques!

I stopped smoking four days ago. I feel like it’s been four months, it’s hard. This must be the 25th time trying to stop smoking. But it’s for a good cause: 1.Health 2. Bank account

Bis später & enjoy your evening!

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl. 

Hello lovely readers!

Whenever I watch a series or a film, I will make a decision within 10 minutes. Either I like it enough to spend my time on, or I dislike it and search for something new.

It’s been 8 weeks since I slept my first night in the Netherlands. It’s been 5 weeks since I got the keys of my appartement. It’s been 8 weeks since being home.

Let me tell you this: if you want something to happen, make it happen! Go for the change, do what makes you happy!

Today I went to the DHL pick up point for my ASOS coat. It’s a little bit more brownish as on the pictures. It’s okay. I also went to get fish. My appartement smells like .

Bis später!

Liebe Grüßen, your Berliner girl.
