It is winter time again and Berlin is cowered with snow like in a fairytale. But besides beautiful appearance the wheather also has disadvantages for current travellers. There are many cancellations and delays which are caused by a lot new snow and icy rain!
So if you are going to travel there, better plan at least 30 minutes more fore your way to go! Yesterday I became aware that there is a twitter page which includes more details about current train interruptions or other technical defects:

Actually it is better to spend the time inside baking christmas cookies or have a walk outside, and if you have to go or intend going by train I wish you a pleasant journey! ;)

Walking over the dunes of Maspalomas – Gran Canaria

when walking along or over these dunes, I would urgently recommend wearing shoes(or at least flip flops) because the sand will be very hot…

durante pasear aquellas dunas lleve zapatos por favor porque la arena estará caliente! ( o al menos las chancletas! ;) )
