In Berlin there is street-food to be found at all the major tourist hot-spots. When you’re about town sightseeing, the best thing is to refuel en route, then collapse in a cafe when you run out of energy.We found that the underpasses of the larger stations such as Alexanderplatz were also a good place to find inexpensive sandwiches and ethnic food to go. But the Berlin fast-food classic is the currywurst - a spicy sausage bathed in curry-flavoured ketchup sauce served with fries with mayo. You’ll find curry wurst stands all over the city and every local has their favourite.We fueled up at Kurfurstendamm just outside the Kaiser Wlihelm Memorial Church where there were a range of food stands to choose from and places to sit and watch the street artists and break-dancers. The teen princesses settled for crepes, their food of choice when they weren’t snacking on Haagen Dazs Ice cream or sneaking into Burger King. My friend Wendy queued for the Curry wurst which was cut into chunks and smothered in the hot curry ketchup. I am a little more wary of processed meat products and decided to try the Thai curry and noodles which I enjoyed.

  • Window shopping for coral in Sardinia

    When on holiday I spend idle hours window shopping which I could never afford at home. I admire the handicrafts in shops designed to tempt the relaxed holiday-maker into parting with their money. Here on the coast of Sardinia there are many jewellery shop

  • Anyone for roast guinea pig? - in Peru

    Depending on your point of view you may find the Peruvian delicacy of roast guinea pig as a horrid way of treating our squeaking furry friends or just another local speciality to try. My friend Joanne decided to keep an open mind and give it a try on her

  • We were silhouetted! at Rovinj in Istria, Croatia

    We’d just climbed up through the narrow cobbled streets of Rovinj, to the cathedral square with a great view of the sea at the top of the hill. As we rested on the wall among the other tourists, the silhouette man appeared from no-where. With his sharp li
