Road tripping through South America with a newborn

Having a four-month maternity leave sounded great, but staying at home all that time was wearing me down. I am serious travel bug/wanderlust case and by the time our child turned one-month-old I was starting to get restless. So when my husband decided to quit his job a month later I told him: "If you are quitting, we are traveling!"

Our hipster city trip to Berlin

Berlin is a city of hipsters: especially in the neighborhood of Kreuzberg, which was right around the corner from our hotel. You almost can't take a step without tripping over an artisan coffee bar, a craft beer pub or a vegan snack bar. It was amazing. We ate out every night, rarely spent more than € 40 for the two of us, and ate GREAT food. It was fabulous dahling.
