Planten un Blomen
Germans love a good walk. What better place to stretch one's legs in Hamburg than in a huge park. Planten un Blomen is a huge green space in the St Pauli district. Handy for us as we were staying in the nearby Superbude.
St Michaels Church Hamburg
Panoramic viewpoints across any city are always a good idea. Hamburg's main eye in the sky comes in the form of the belltower at St Michael’s Church situated in the city centre close to Rödingsmarkt. Finding the church was...

Rindermarkthalle, St Pauli

Rindermarkthalle, St Pauli
Food courts are a perfect way to sample multiple cuisines and still stay within a budget. The Rindermarkthalle in St Pauli was a quick 10 minute walk away from our hotel at Superbude, St Pauli. Coming out of...

Hyperion Hotel, Hamburg

Hyperion Hotel, Hamburg
After our super cool stay at Superbude Hotel and Hostel, we headed over the city to spend our remaining days in a 5-star hotel. The Hyperion. Handily located within walking distance of the central Hauptbahnhof, The Hyperion looked...

Mö-Grill, Hamburg

Mö-Grill, Hamburg
What is Germany’s main contribution to the world’s street food scene? Currywurst of course. Many people can’t get their heads around a bratwurst sausage sliced up and slathered in curry ketchup but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

Chocolate, or ‘Schokolade’ in German is loved by everyone. So what about a museum that is both educational and interactive covering the process of chocolate making? One such place exists right here in Hamburg - Chocoversum.

The Nature Valley Nottingham Open - Final Stages
It’s hard to believe that the tournament is nearly over. Covering The Nature Valley Nottingham Open 2018 has been nothing short of a pleasure. I’ve actually been really taken in by the quality of the tennis throughout the rankings - particularly in the women's game. Don’t get me wrong, there...
The Nature Valley Nottingham Open 2018 Round Two
The media room was rammed this morning. A huge collection of cameras, laptops and even suitcases - who brings a suitcase along to a tennis match? On the positive side, there were sandwiches provided as the food selection seemed to increase along with the quality now left in the...
Nottingham Open Round One
Today, the sun is out and so are the top players. Centre Court is open to the paying public and a stacked card features top draws Liam Broady in the mens and world number 20 Naomi Osaka opening up for the ladies. The journey down the M1 was nothing...

Normally you would arrive in Basel hungry for Fondue or Toblerone, not Pad Thai and Argentine steak. If that is the case, however, you can get your fix of the world food scene in the Markthalle beside the main SBB station. If, like us, you arrive on a Sunday when...
