Bonn (Voyage)

Springtime in Bonn, so lovely!
I’ve been to Bonn twice now, both times for conferences (one DAAD, one AvH).  Bonn's a great little city, even better when you're being wined and dined for the cost of a presentation or two!

Speed wobbles - thoughts on Radiohead and TV on the Radio

Two of my favourite bands, Radiohead and TV on the Radio have released albums in the last few months, and I am bitterly disappointed to report that neither offering is mind-blowingly, jaw-droppingly awesome.  All winning streaks must come to an end, and all things must past, but such knowledge doesn't really soften the blow all that much.

Regensburg: Oldest school sausages and the classics to boot

What you're looking at, in the photo to the left, is the kitchen of the oldest sausage hut in Germany. And how good are the sausages cooked in this kitchen, in a small hut in the city of Regensburg, sitting on the banks of the Danube (called Regensburgers of course)?  Served in a caraway laced bun with 'kraut and strong Bayern sweet mustard, they are absolutely delicious, good enough I had 'em twice!
