What I am LIstening to this Week #29

The music that our parents listen to when we are growing up often define our own music tastes. For me I have a lot of fond memories of my parents blasting out music on the stereo, either in the car, my home, or our flat in Scotland. And now a lot of the music I love to listen to is music that my parents love to listen to too. So I thought for todays playlist I would list some of the songs that shaped my childhood.

Interrailing Days 6-8: Prague


Prague roughly marked the halfway point of our journey, and what a beautiful way to mark half way. I was a bit apprehensive about our Prague stop,as we were staying in a 36 man dorm, but our hostel, the Czech Inn was beautifully styled and equipped, with a bunk bed, huge lockable box and charging point for each person.

As Prague was so cheap we ate out quite a lot, and this included more than a few cocktails, and my favourite, Tequila Sunrise! One warning I do have about Prague is there 'no tap water' policy. Where ever we ate we found that no one would serve tap water, and for people on a budget that is something to bear in mind.

Things to do in Prague:
  • Visit Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, and the winding streets that feed off it.
  • Find a market for some great bargains
  • Visit Jazz and Blues Club Ungelt for a relaxed evening full of music. We were also lucky enough to see a bit of Prague's Bohemia Jazz Festival that was going in the main square.
  • Visit the Astrological Clock on the hour
  • Rent pedallows and view Prague from the river (however, there were a few bloated dead sewer rats floating in the river, so not one for the faint hearted!)
  • Look out for buskers the 'Crocodile Quartet' a four piece string quartet who transform classics such as 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll' with enjoyment and vigour.

H&M Home Wishlist

H&M Home Wishlist
In a few months time I should be setting off for University (*cough* results pending *cough*), and this, combined with the recent interior photos and post from the lovely Kate off of gh0stparties, has sent me into an interior frenzy. I love homeware shopping at the best of times, and now that I have a semi-excuse to shop for new bedding and blankets I have been trawling the likes of Ikea, Zara Home, and in particular H&M Home for bits and bobs I may need. In my opinion H&M have been killing it recently in the interior department. So I thought I would create two little wishlists for you, one of soft furnishings, and one of decorative pieces to show you what I have been lusting after recently. I am finding it hard to justify why I would need a copper lantern, but it is just so pretty....

Interrailing Days 3-6: Berlin

Following a nine and a half hour train journey, we eventually arrived in Berlin at 5:00, well 5 of us did, two girls did not get off the train in time, and ended up doing a half an hour round trip of Berlin to get back to the main station. Exhausted from a hot and crowded train journey, where we were woken up by passport control and various other backpackers getting on and off, we made our way to our hostel in Alexandeplatz, an area near the centre of Berlin.

For anyone looking for slightly cheaper accomodation, I highly reccommend the  ONE80 hostel. A good location, stylishly fitted out and with amusing and helpful staff, I felt safe and comfortable.

Things to do in Berlin:
  • Go up the Reichstag Building (but book in advance to avoid queues)
  • Visit Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum which allow you to explore vital parts of German history as well as experience beautiful architecture.
  • Stroll along Berlin's East Side Gallery and soak up the years of seperation and protest that the wall and graffitti represent.
  • Eat the local cuisine, I recommend Currywurst, which although an acquired taste has to be tried.
We also happened to be in Berlin for the world cup final, and my friends all headed to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to watch it on the big screens, drink and soak up the atmosphere. I stayed in the hostel, as I knew I couldn't cope with the crowds, having struggled with the Dutch semi finals in Amsterdam. But what can I tell you, Berlin is certainly one football mad, party city, which on that night kind of reminded me a wee bit of Newcastle.... Berlin's the perfect city for both culture and a good night out, but I would advise googling clubs and sights you wish to go to see beforehand, to avoid aimless wondering acoross this vast city.
