New Year's Res­o­lu­tions

Where Berlin - - WELCOME TO BERLIN -

I hope your New Year was off to a great start, and that your list of res­o­lu­tions is ready! Mine is, and I'd like to share it with you. It takes a bit of luck and lots of de­ter­mi­na­tion to achieve our goals, but with the help of all the won­der­ful ac­tiv­i­ties and sights Berlin has to of­fer, I have the feel­ing that this year they won't get ne­glected! Let's start from the most ob­vi­ous one: los­ing weight after all the hol­i­day meals. Tak­ing a long walk in the woods in glacial tem­per­a­tures is a great calo­rie burner, es­pe­cially if fol­lowed by a visit to the Liq­uidrom saunas (www.liq­uidrom.de), where you can sweat the left­over tox­ins away. Num­ber two on my list is eat­ing health­ier food, which trans­lates into eat­ing more sea­sonal vegetables and us­ing bet­ter in­gre­di­ents. This means you'll be see­ing a lot of me at Mark­thalle Neun, Berlin's trendi­est in­door mar­ket, where young, lo­cal farm­ers con­gre­gate to present the best their gar­dens have to of­fer. In 2015, I also in­tend to spend more time with my friends, and I have se­lected a cou­ple of cozy and chat-en­cour­ag­ing cafés: Bar­comi's (Bergmannstr. 28), provider of Berlin's best lat­tes, and the scruffy (but de­li­cious) Sch­warzes Café (Kantstr. 148), rem­i­nis­cent of the old West Berlin days – it's per­fect for more in­volved his­tory dis­cus­sions. This year I also want to invest some time in do­ing some­thing cre­ative, which makes a trip to the Mo­du­lor art sup­ply store (Prinzen­str. 85) a real must. And it won't be hard to ful­fill my last res­o­lu­tion, be­ing up to date with the lat­est fash­ion trends: Berlin Fash­ion Week is around the cor­ner, and I just can't wait to dis­cover what de­sign­ers have in store for us this sea­son.
