Being somehow helpless

Sonntag, Februar 19th, 2017

Helping my family, friends, colleagues or sometimes even people I do not know at all has always been something I regarded as nothing special.

Early morning

Thinking back about the last year, I have always been looking for new places to visit or new things to do on the weekends or public holidays.


One topic was trying to find new coffee shops selling Dutch coffee or cold brew. Since I kept a bottle of each please I had been to – and it has been many places – my collection is rather big. Several shelfs in my kitchen are totally packed with bottles of different colors, sizes and with beautiful labels.

Most likely I will have to throw them away when moving either back to Germany or a different place one day, but for now I would like to keep them. Some of the shops have changed the labels on their bottles by now or even closed.
